"No one, and I mean no one has a better, more direct and comprehensive view on the rise and rule of Donald Trump than Stone."Dr. Theodore Roosevelt Malloch
"We are living in the age of Stone. Indeed his journey from a Dick Nixon 'Dirty Trickster,' to Donald Trump's man in the trenches, does roughly mirror the trajectory of the American right."Variety
"Stone has been a colorful and at times maligned figure in the Republican Party who relishes political combat and playing a role in causing or exposing unseemly scandals."Washington Post

"This excellent book will become the classic resource for future students of the 2016 presidential election."Phillip F. Nelson
"I have never seen a more well structured summary of a great historical event."Graham H. Seibert, TOP 500 REVIEWER
"Incredible to follow and now revisit such a historical campaign! Stone and fellow patriot talk show host Alex jokes undoubtly propelled President Trump's campaign to a historical victory. Amazing! Stone called it all the way to the end! No wonder the mainstream media didn't want him on their airwaves. Must have for all Trump fans or for anyone wanting to breakout of the left/right controlled media/political paradigm."AnalogElvis
"This is an important book written by Roger Stone -- a seasoned (famous/infamous) political operative and a long-time trusted Trump adviser. If you want to understand how Trump thinks, how he calculates politically, you MUST read ROGER STONE's book. MAKING OF THE PRESIDENT 2016 is also very entertaining -- Roger Stone relates his time with Trump over decades, recalling conversations and previous Trump presidential campaigns -- even how one day he saved Donald Trump's life. Stone gives you an INSIDER'S VIEW of Trump's campaign -- from Trump's announcement of his candidacy until election night 2016, when Trump finally achieved the presidency he has sought since the 1990s. The book also presents a brilliant analysis of Hillary Clinton and her campaign, and the "Silent Majority" ignored by Hollywood and the mainstream media elites in LA and NYC that elected Trump. If you want to understand why and how HILLARY LOST, the strategy Stone implemented DAY ONE to get Trump into the White House. The truth is Roger Stone never quit supporting Trump -- even when he officially left the campaign. Handing the position of campaign manager to others, Stone strategically positioned himself as "an outsider," much as Trump positioned himself as an "outsider." Stone calculated the move to give him more leverage over the media -- while remaining in constant touch with Trump and key officers in Trump's campaign -- including Paul Manafort -- Stone's long-time political consulting partner. Using the MAKING OF THE PRESIDENT format Theodore H. White made famous, STONE takes the reader through the campaign -- from the primaries, through the presidential debates, and the closing rallies -- weaving a chronological commentary peppered with insightful insights. I truly enjoyed this book and I recommend it to you enthusiastically. If you want to understand modern presidential politics, I strongly urge you to read Roger Stone's MAKING OF THE PRESIDENT 2016."Jerome R. Corsi
"As someone who lived parts of this journey with the author, I can say with confidence that his perspective and knowledge of the general subject matter and of course the principal himself is unparalleled. There will be hundreds of books on this subject, but only a handful will be legit. This, friends, is solidly in the latter category."Christian Josi
"Roger Stone is a true Donald Trump insider. [His] book does a great job outlining the timing and tactics that Trump used to pull off one of the biggest upsets in election history! What Trump has accomplished and Stone documented is truly a revolution."elias

The bad parts of the book is the account is one sided, Trump's. The author does seem to have more information about that side. He does write about Hillary but then it seems to be just newspaper accounts. The good part of the book is there are places he offers unique information and insight you won't see anywhere else. Roger Stone is the only person to address the dangers of Hillary's friend Huma Abedin. He also dives deep in her part of the email scandal. She was stashing over 650,000 emails for purposes unknown. It isn't addressed why in this book or elsewhere. I also liked the inside stories of various people you won't see referenced elsewhere like the role of infowars, the role of "Hillary for Jail" t-shirts, and most interesting of all was the role Danny Williams. He is the illegitimate son of Bill Clinton. The getting out of that message helped changed the minds of the black vote in several key cities.
Overall it is a good story recapping the election.
The author reveals that he was not actually a part of the Trump campaign for most of its duration, instead serving as an informal political adviser. It leaves the reader to ponder, How much authority does this author actually have on the subject?
I purchased this book hoping to learn behind-the-scenes campaign lessons I did not know. While occasionally there are helpful details, there was little to no analysis behind the author's opinions. If Trump had lost narrowly, the author could still write the exact same views and they would ring false. Hence, even though Trump won, what Stone asserts does not ring true--merely possible.
