      Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestI applied for an ARC of this book because of the title alone. To be honest, I didn't even really look at the summary that carefully at first - the title seemed self-explanatory. This would be a book that analyzed but also condemned the people who voted for Trump as the dreaded harbingers of the Trumpocalypse right? NOPE!HORSEMEN OF THE TRUMPOCALYPSE is a bit more diplomatic than that. The author of this book does not blame the constituents; he bla [...]

    2. Horsemen of the Trumpocalypse: The Dirty Dealers and Defenders of the Indefensible Who Are "Making America Great Again"Excellent and detailed overview of the Trump presidency and administration which has been a moving target (both of change and In unfilled positions) during the last 8 months. I imagine updates will be needed every quarter or half year! The author recently spoke at a Democrats Abroad event in San Jose, Costa Rica (the country where I reside), but sadly I could not attend. It was [...]

    3. Excellent journalism. This is a cabinet and administration that needs to be carefully monitored so they are not allowed to destroy the country we are leaving to our children for the benefit of billionaires.

    4. A must read ! Knowledge is Power . John Nichols brings history and verifiable truth and facts in an age of propaganda and deception.

    5. Clearly, this book is biased against Trump's appointments. It provides a lot of background information on all of Trump's key appointments to date, primarily in his cabinet. However, doing some fact checking on what the author provides has borne out the information presented here. For example, Kellyanne Conway seemed (to me) to surface out of nowhere - this book provides her resume before she jumped on the Trump train. Obviously, many of these folks saw an opportunity for personal gain. No one is [...]

    6. I suspect the one-star reviews are posted by folks who didn't really read the book but just wanted to be troll-y. It's quite a read -- takes most of the Trump administration, as of about May 2017 -- and examines their backgrounds and qualifications for the jobs. Even though I'm a newshound, there were many bits in here that I didn't know. Nichols is a respected journalist and uses about 1/3 of the total book length to footnote and otherwise verify his statements.The book itself is an easy read. [...]

    7. This book may depress you but you need to read it anyway. Hopefully it will sufficiently piss you off that you take up activism (if you don't already). If you were to pick the most egregious, dishonest, thieving, unempathetic humans in the world, you couldn't do a better job than Trump has with those in his cabinet and his camp. He claims to drain the swamp; they only way he drained the swamp was by sucking the entire dregs into his administration. All this you will learn from John Nichols. He i [...]

    8. For those who want to get a more precise picture of the people that are currently holding positions of power in the USA, this is a good start. Each chapter represents a particular person that is holding, or has held office under Donald Trump. The book is straight forward and to the point, offering historical and documented presentations of each person's list of accomplishments, and stated purposes concerning the direction that they believe this country should go.As stated, the book is straightfo [...]

    9. OK, so there is some good information in here, and if I'd read this when it first came out I would have learned a lot, but I think the regular news media has covered most of this stuff pretty well. Yes, this book gives some extra background into some of the names that have become so familiar over the first year of the travesty that has been this administration's first year, but it's hard to get through all the rhetoric and hyperbole. This is a book that knows its base and is trying to feed it re [...]

    10. John Nichols is smarter than this book, which sacrifices depth for breadth. While there are useful facts and context to be gleaned, too often it feels like a list of justifications for those already inclined to be terrified of various characters in the Trump Expanded Universe. It's not very enlightening to learn that somebody has earned a snarky nickname or been "linked" to monolithically malicious organizations like ALEC or villains like the Kochs, as many are here without the surely interestin [...]

    11. This reads like a gallery of wanted posters in your local postoffice. It is hard-hitting, almost inflammatory until you read the source material that justifies the rhetoric and portrayal of men and women who surround President Trump. It is truly alarming to have so many ill suited to ensure that our government doesn’t stay within constitutional boundaries and can operate with impunity . The rallying cry is “Chaos”, shoot from the hip (twitter) and the art of the deal. A good but disturbing [...]

    12. "Trump and Pence were made for each other - out of spare parts of tossed-off morality and abandoned consciences.""A little patience, and we shall see the reign of witches pass over, their spells dissolve, and the people, recovering their true sight, restore their government to its true principles. It is true that in the meantime we are suffering deeply in spirit, and incurring the horrors.". "If the game sometimes runs against us at home we must have the patience till luck turns, and then we sha [...]

    13. Well-researched profiles of the schemers & scumbags that have turned the current administration into the horror show it is today. Know thine enemy!

    14. John Nichols explains every reason why you should be worried about the Trump administration. Required reading.
