--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

Dan Bongino started his career as member of NY Police Department, in his home city where he was raised since he was born in Queens.
Although he grew up modestly, from the start of his career he gradually started ascending the hierarchy by successful realization of his tasks, gaining greater and more important jobs that eventually led him to become a member of elite Presidential Protective Division in White House.
Because of all the things he experienced while working as secret agent, together with his own beliefs he decided to leave a long career in which he was successful.
Instead he resigned from the Secret Service in 2011 and decided to enter into uncertain world of politics, running for the United States Senate against the Democrats.
In his book he described his entire life so far, not neglecting any period, speaking about his childhood, time he spent in NYPD, the stories about him becoming Secret Service agent and time he spent working there.
And though I guess that due to his political beliefs, the book (as well as this review) will be probably a priori rejected from all those who think differently, I suggest that you dedicate some time and even if you think otherwise give it a chance (at least borrowing it from your local library).
The book is decently written and provides some information that would be of interest to every American citizen.
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!
