Book Reviews – What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton, The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, Dan Brown and Danielle Steel

I recommend What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton for an in depth-look into the mind and activities of Hillary. Whether you voted for her or not, whether you love her or hate her, this is a down to earth, almost conversational read.

I finished Dan Brown’s Origin today and I have to say that I really loved it. It’s a fast paced book, but even if you don’t have time to read it in one sitting, it still makes sense when you come back to it.

I’m now reading The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, a compilation of 27 psychiatrists and mental health workers. From what I gather from the beginning, is that mental health workers are prohibited from giving a diagnosis about a public figure without an in-depth in-person analysis — unless there is a clear and present danger to the country — and the prologue insists that their review of the president from all angles suggests that … well, I won’t give anything away — that’s half the fun of reading, is finding out for yourself.

I recently read The Right Time by Danielle Steel. It’s a wonderful story about a girl who loses her whole family and was only 8 at the time. A group of women take her in and she finishes school while she hones her craft of writing. She’s a very precocious writer and only gets better as time goes on. A lot of twists and turns in this wonderful story!

  • Hello D Beatty, I love reading books that I know the people involved and I can’t wait to lay my hands on ‘What happened’ by Hillary Clinton and ‘ The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump’. Though I wish the authors had waited for him to finish serving the country before writing this book. Thank you for the information.

    • Hi, Stella.  I love biographies, too.  It’s always thrilling to learn about someone you know.  Another genre of books I love are historical novels.  You are entertained while learning more about history.

  • I love reading books especially those that talk about real people. And with everything that happened, especially the unexpected victory of Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton, I would be interested to know what’s Hillary been up to and how she’s doing now. I wonder if she has actually gotten over her defeat.

    I’m surprised there’s already a book written about Donald Trump and I can’t wait to get a copy of it. Thanks for the review.

    • Thank you for your review. I’m really impressed with The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump. Twenty-seven psychiatrists can’t be wrong in their analysis of everything that we all have seen and heard of his behavior.

  • Hey DBeathy,

    Thank you for the politic article. I am one of many people who like both of reading books and reading about politics.
    I addicted to reading news every day due to hard situations in our region”middle east”. Anyway, In last president election, i have supported Hillary against Trump, even I am not American.
    I have many relative their and i have talked with them about that issue a lot.
    I will read that book indeed.

    Thank you,

    • Thank you for your comment.  Yes, it was quite a shock for many people when Donald Trump won.  The latest news I heard about him that really disturbs me, is that he is denying telling a mourning military widow that, “Well, he knew what he was getting into.”  That in itself is very insensitive to tell a widow while she is riding to the funeral of her husband, but what is worse, her phone was on speaker and a Senator in the car heard the whole conversation.  The senator called him out on it, and now he says, “I never said those things.”  What a liar, and what nerve to deny when the senator was a witness.

      Well, that’s my rant for the day.  I hope we can become friends from afar.  I live in Kansas City, Missouri, USA.
