Praise for The Amateur
“The Amateur is the best book I’ve read on how Barack Obama is wrecking our country. I urge everyone who cares about America to read Edward Klein’s eye-opening book.”
—Donald J. Trump, world-famous businessman, owner and host of the hit NBC TV shows The Apprentice and Celebrity Apprentice, and bestselling author of many titles, including Time to Get Tough: Making America #1 Again
“This is a racy, entertaining, informative book that illuminates aspects of Obama and his team that have not been previously reported. A necessary antidote to the Obama worship that is sure to characterize the election debate.”
—Dinesh D’Souza, president of The King’s College and bestselling author of The Roots of Obama’s Rage
“All the horrors I predicted in Welcome to Obamaland have now been definitively proven true by Edward Klein’s rip-roaringly readable new book The Amateur, which uses great stories and great reporting to illustrate just how ideological, arrogant, and hapless Obama and his administration really are. An outstanding demolition job on the most overrated president of our time.”
—James Delingpole, columnist for the Daily Telegraph and the Spectator and author of Welcome to Obamaland
“A devastating indictment of the lethal combination of incompetence and radicalism that has made Obama into one of the worst presidents in American history.”
—Norman Podhoretz, former editor of Commentary magazine and author of many books, including most recently, Why Are Jews Liberals?
Since the 2008 campaign season, books critical of Obama examine the fruits of his policies, in varying degree, and tend to fall into one of three divisions:
1. Highlighting of Obama’s extremism, and his various coteries of like-minded extremists;
2. Attempts to lay bare the interior Obama, and understand his motivations;
3. Logically flawed, and emotionally driven.
Remarkably, Edward Klein has combined the above first two items along with the words and opinions of many principal, and lesser, actors from the world of Obama.
Surprisingly, in relatively few pages (258 of them, and widely spaced), and in the fourth year of Obama’s reign, Klein clearly demonstrates the failure of Obama as President–and his inability to learn from his failures; Obama’s incompetence and intellectual one-dimensionality are simply stunning.
Interestingly revelatory, are the words of the people Klein interviewed: Democrats, Republicans, friends, past and present supporters of Obama. The racist opportunist and talented hater, Jeremiah Wright, actually comes across as highly intelligent and sympathetic when discussing the younger Obama, and the volatile period during and after the 2008 campaign.
Superficially, Klein’s detractors might see this book as a scholar’s compendium of modern political gossip. In fact, Klein is analytical and highly perceptive in examining Obama’s record. The words of those interviewed expose the reader to insights about Obama that are certain to enlighten–and occasionally entertain.
