"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

Roger Stone is a brilliant, controversial person who has been involved in each of the last nine presidential elections since Richard Nixon's election. He has been a close friend and advisor to Donald Trump for 38 years, since meeting him in 1979... and probably knows him better than anyone else. The book is extraordinarily interesting, a fast, easy read, with facts, fascinating details and anecdotes few others would know, supported by hundreds of references and footnotes.
Some of the revelations include: Trump's first consideration of a run for the presidency, for the Reform Party in 1999-2000; why he withdrew; why he reconsidered again in 2012 but deferred to Romney… and then for this critical election:
How Hillary Clinton got the MSM behind her despite no one being able to name a single major accomplishment of hers; the FACT BACKED incredibly corrupt role of the MSM, the extent of the MANY dirty tricks used by the Clintons; how Trump hijacked and won the Republican primaries, the importance of the very under estimated Alex Jones and InfoWars; the key roles of Judicial Watch, Drudge Report and others; who the good guys and bad guys are in each camp; the incredible money laundering around Podesta; the stories about the Clinton Foundation; how Hillary stole the Democratic nomination; the real reasons why her platform didn't work; the real effect of WikiLeaks and why she REALLY lost; the truth about her illnesses; how the polls were loaded and missed the real voters; exposure of the true paid protestors; the incredible story of Huma, Saudi spy? The role of the CIA; it wasn't the Russians… and the MANY reasons Trump won, despite several missteps, through brilliant strategies, key team members, very effective use of social media, bypassing the MSM, hard work and INFORMATION; the roles of Tony Fabrizio, Jared... and DATA;
This definitive work concludes with how Trump won the closing argument, why and how President Trump is our best hope of returning to a nation of winners ...and what is to come beyond the Soros sponsored riots and the possibility of one of the greatest presidencies.
