"For Dan Bongino to leave the Secret Service to fight the permanent political class could not have been easy, but his bravery is easily one of the reasons why Americans are learning more about how the D.C. 'Bubble' grows but never pops."
--Matthew Boyle, Investigative Journalist, Breitbart News
"A rare peek inside the DC 'Bubble' which should be a wake-up call to every American." --Sean Hannity, New York Times No. 1 Bestselling author and Fox News Channel Host

The second half of the book is where I ran into disappointment. His interviews on TV made the book sound like a new political scandal book. You wont' see much of that in the book. Mr. Bongino talks about a few of the recent scandals. His summary of these events are very concise and entertaining. However he really doesn't offer anything new which hasn't been talked about before in the media. I did enjoy the chapter about his Senate run. He was able to get the nomination but lost in the general. That sort of does give the average person a sense of hope that the political class doesn't run everything.
You do get a sense of who the author is in the book. He has little opinion inserts all through the book. There should have been more of that. You do get a sense that he is a true American hero. I hope eventually he gets elected.
Those of you who felt compelled to write a negative review of this book should now go back and actually read it. Don't pull a Pelosi, it's so obvious that you never read the book because you don't know what's in it.
I per-ordered 3 books for Christmas gifts and will order a few more. Great job Dan Bongino, I can't wait for the sequel!
Author of "Survivor's Guilt: The Secret Service and the Failure to Protect President Kennedy"
A rare conviction so strong, all the effort and success in meeting the requirements of the job description did not interfere with personal beliefs, and a decision had to be made by this person to step up to the plate and even try to change his career intentions after 12 years of being well thought of in the secret service, what he and roughly 63% of Americans and patriots believe . (Statistics are based on a reported 37% approval rate currently of this administration)
This abuse of power must be challenged and it would take giving up a job he loved , to try to do something about it.
He made sacrifices which included not seeing his family, ( his daughter asking him " daddy are you allowed to sleep here tonight?"), on a regular basis, traveling on twelve hour flights to Afghanistan, and doing all the planning just to have the some of these trips cancelled arbitrarily .
He seemed to thrive on the tremendous stress of the planning it involved and his reward was keeping the president safe. No other tangible reward was received when he resigned, no recognition except his satisfaction he did his job well, and appreciative admiration from within the ranks of the service. Oh , and he had to be willing to take a bullet for whoever he was protecting at the time.
He sets the bar high for himself just as most others do in the secret service. No whining, worked diligently for ever changing intelligence, and had an extremely high work ethic.
I and many others would be overjoyed if he and others like him would be elected to the senate to perpetuate the truth , and achieve a balance while restoring dignity, decorum and balance to our constatuitionally intended three divisions of American government.Read more ›
