This helps me, because, after years spent teaching and running 2 businesses, I like to travel and write as I travel.

Game Change by John Heilemann
I've actually moved on to "Nest of Vipers" and Michelle Obama's book, after reading "Unhinged" by Omarosa, Woodward's book, and "Fire & Fury." Next up will probably be Andrew McCabe's, who will be interviewed on "Sixty Minutes" on Sunday; anybody else read these?
