In Everything Trump Touches Dies, political campaign strategist and commentator Rick Wilson brings his darkly funny humor and biting analysis to the absurdity of American politics in the age of Trump. Wilson mercilessly exposes the damage Trump has done to the country, to the Republican Party he served for decades, and to the conservative movement that has abandoned its principles for the worst president in American history. No left-winger, Wilson is a lifelong conservative who delivers his withering critique of Trump from the right.

I found the book to be fun and informative. While I don't necessarily agree with everything Rick says, and not everything he has written stands the test of time, he no doubt has a powerful grasp of American culture and politics. Easy recommendation.

It’s been three years since Lee Harden emerged from his bunker into a world gone mad. Governments have fallen. And new ones have taken their place. In the United Eastern States, Lee and his team of battle-hardened operatives walk a tightrope of survival, keeping their fledgling society safe from the creatures beyond their gates - and from the enemies within. Then, an ambush in hostile territory reveals a traitor in their midst - and leaves Lee barely clinging to life. Wounded and on the run, Lee and his team race to uncover the leak before it’s too late.

glad there was a conclusion to the story. I thought the book was somewhat rushed drawing conclusions, as it seemed to move very quickly toward the end, but I still enjoyed the audiobook immensely. Sucks to be done.

I have to say I'm impressed by everything I've read by Nicholas Sansbury Smith. The story is engaging throughout, and the narration is top knotch. My only gripe, which is a small one, is that Smith seems to have a small playbook when it comes to describing certain events, like headshots, or the variant's gaping maw... there's lots of both, and you hear the same description countless times, so it gets a bit old.

Despite my pretentious gripe, I'd recommend the series in its entirety all day. Great story, relatable characters and a great time killer on the long commute to work.
