    Can there be such a thing as a definitive account of a complex, evolving political scandal? Perhaps not, but if such a thing were possible, Russian Roulette would be that book. There is a professionalism and solidity to Michael Isikoff and David Corn?s reporting that insures Rus...

    ?Putin had once called the collapse of the Soviet Union the ?greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century.? He was a Russian nationalist to his core. He wanted to extend Russian power, restoring its spheres of influence. He was an autocrat in the long tradition of Russian str...

    This was really a great piece of journalism but so incredibly soul-crushing. The multiple errors of the HRC campaign and the Obama administration in not exposing the Russian hacks, Comey?s treacherous (sorry, but it was totally partisan on his part) re-opening of the bogus Clinton em...

    I assert my right to call this a #realreview In possession of three somewhat inter-related books on the 45th POTUS, I thought that I would craft what I am calling my Trump Trifecta, which fits nicely into this non-fiction binge whose time is waning. Some may dispute the ?non-ficti...

    Each day it seems there is a new revelation related to Russian actions during the 2016 presidential election. Today for example, the New York Times reported that Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller has subpoenaed records of the Trump Organization to examine its relationship with Russia. ...

    3.5 stars Reading books about current US politics is completely useless. While Russian Roulette pulls together a lot of information about how Russia interfered in the US 2016 election, the information in the book has been overtaken many times over by the daily headlines since its p...

    The Russian government is an asshole government. SURPRISE! The FSB (formerly the KGB) were harassing our diplomats prior to the Obama administration. They were beating them up, threatening them and their loved ones, and even killing their pets while they were out. Assholes. I am ...

    It is difficult for a journalistic book written on current unfolding events to be a great one. There is simply not enough historical distance between the events of 2016 and earlier and today and the news keeps unfolding like the Cambridge Analytica and Facebook targeted political ad ne...

    Can?t Wait For the Sequel This book was one 1/2 WTF and 1/2 OMG! It will go down in history as the definitive first history of the scandal that has consumed our country for over two years now. It was well researched and well written. I would think skeptics of Russian meddling wo...

    This book marshals some interesting facts and figures, but I'm giving it a less-than-stellar rating because it seeks to blame one President -- in this case, Barack Obama -- for America's cyber-incompetence. The fact is, this or any other nation's ability to be hacked by outsiders has b...

    Best summary of the Russian attacks on our democracy that I've read so far. Trump is a co-conspirator, a traitor, and an illegitimate occupier of the White House. The sooner he and his circus of criminals are removed, the better. ...

    This is a comprehensive look at everything we currently know about Russian interference in the 2016 election, connections between Trump's campaign and Russia, and reactions of both campaigns and the media to the scandal. I recommend the audio, as dealing with all the Russian names was ...

    ?If this is true,? he exclaimed, ?it?s treason.? That quote, and the context it was made are towards the end of the book, so I won't tell you more. This was a fascinating read, and at times reads like a spy novel. It starts at the beginning of it all and leads the rea...

    Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin's War on America and the Election of Donald Trump is a well-researched book by veteran journalists and investigative reporters Michael Isikoff and David Corn, one of international espionage and political intrigue set in motion to interfere w...

    This would have been more fun to read - if I hadn't already watched Rachel Maddow every night for this past year of Trumpian horror. Nevertheless, even though there was virtually NOTHING new in the book, it was still interesting to read it through Isikoff's and Korn's eyes. They put ev...

    Everyone should read this book. Period. Especially here in the United States. I knew about most of the things authors Corn & Isikoff write in the book, having watched lots of MSNBC in the last 24 months. The U.S. has been taken over by agents of Russia and this book explains in a c...

    Please don?t read this review if you plan on arguing politics. My interest in history is more investigative. Why did that happen? What if y happened instead of x? How did we get to here? Where does this end? So this book answers a lot for me. I have been following and research...

    Extremely well-written, well researched and the definitive guide to everything happening in the world right now relating to Trump and Russia. The book truly lays out everything in an easy to understand, chronological order. So many insights and so many connections. It is a must rea...

    Political writers David Corn and Michael Isikoff have written "Russian Roulette", the well-told story of Russia's meddling in the politics of the United States. I'm not judging the political story told, but merely how it was told. The reader has to make up his own mind about the politi...

    The 2016 Presidential Election might have broken my brain a little bit. It was a bad night of no sleep and a pretty bad panic attack. It was a garbage day-after. It has been uniformly shitstorm since the day Donald Trump was elected President of the United States. Sure, there've been s...

    Excellent descriptive timeline of the facts involving the Russian interference in the 2016 election and the aftermath. Well researched and documented. Truth Matters! ...

    This thing read like a Tom Clancy novel where Jack Ryan and Company don?t actually get their shit together and end up saving the day. How exasperating. ...

    Can?t Wait For the Sequel This book was one 1/2 WTF and 1/2 OMG! It will go down in history as the definitive first history of the scandal that has consumed our country for over two years now. It was well researched and well written. I would think skeptics of Russian meddling wo...

    This book marshals some interesting facts and figures, but I'm giving it a less-than-stellar rating because it seeks to blame one President -- in this case, Barack Obama -- for America's cyber-incompetence. The fact is, this or any other nation's ability to be hacked by outsiders has b...

    This book marshals some interesting facts and figures, but I'm giving it a less-than-stellar rating because it seeks to blame one President -- in this case, Barack Obama -- for America's cyber-incompetence. The fact is, this or any other nation's ability to be hacked by outsiders has b...

    For What It's Worth : Let's start off with a quick confession. I've been a politics junkie of late, and nothing is more fascinating in this era than the Trump-Russia probe. An adventure that's got everything-- white-knuckle moments of confrontation and accusation, intriguing coldwar-r...

    Please don?t read this review if you plan on arguing politics. My interest in history is more investigative. Why did that happen? What if y happened instead of x? How did we get to here? Where does this end? So this book answers a lot for me. I have been following and research...

    Extremely well-written, well researched and the definitive guide to everything happening in the world right now relating to Trump and Russia. The book truly lays out everything in an easy to understand, chronological order. So many insights and so many connections. It is a must rea...

    Unless you've experienced sensory deprivation for the last year and a half, you know that Russians influenced the 2016 election. Overwhelming evidence has come to light and dribbled out through hundreds of news stories and books. Not to mention the indictments that have already come do...

    National tragedies probably shouldn't be this entertaining. ...

    When Trump was elected to the US presidency, it seemed impossible that my fellow citizens could have voted for a narcissist with a history of sexual assault and harassment, multiple bankruptcies, a nasty habit of constant lying, and no moral compass. As it turns out, Trump had plenty o...

    Political writers David Corn and Michael Isikoff have written "Russian Roulette", the well-told story of Russia's meddling in the politics of the United States. I'm not judging the political story told, but merely how it was told. The reader has to make up his own mind about the politi...

    The 2016 Presidential Election might have broken my brain a little bit. It was a bad night of no sleep and a pretty bad panic attack. It was a garbage day-after. It has been uniformly shitstorm since the day Donald Trump was elected President of the United States. Sure, there've been s...

    Can there be such a thing as a definitive account of a complex, evolving political scandal? Perhaps not, but if such a thing were possible, Russian Roulette would be that book. There is a professionalism and solidity to Michael Isikoff and David Corn?s reporting that insures Rus...

    ?Putin had once called the collapse of the Soviet Union the ?greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century.? He was a Russian nationalist to his core. He wanted to extend Russian power, restoring its spheres of influence. He was an autocrat in the long tradition of Russian str...

    This was really a great piece of journalism but so incredibly soul-crushing. The multiple errors of the HRC campaign and the Obama administration in not exposing the Russian hacks, Comey?s treacherous (sorry, but it was totally partisan on his part) re-opening of the bogus Clinton em...

    I assert my right to call this a #realreview In possession of three somewhat inter-related books on the 45th POTUS, I thought that I would craft what I am calling my Trump Trifecta, which fits nicely into this non-fiction binge whose time is waning. Some may dispute the ?non-ficti...

    Each day it seems there is a new revelation related to Russian actions during the 2016 presidential election. Today for example, the New York Times reported that Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller has subpoenaed records of the Trump Organization to examine its relationship with Russia. ...

    3.5 stars Reading books about current US politics is completely useless. While Russian Roulette pulls together a lot of information about how Russia interfered in the US 2016 election, the information in the book has been overtaken many times over by the daily headlines since its p...

    The Russian government is an asshole government. SURPRISE! The FSB (formerly the KGB) were harassing our diplomats prior to the Obama administration. They were beating them up, threatening them and their loved ones, and even killing their pets while they were out. Assholes. I am ...

    It is difficult for a journalistic book written on current unfolding events to be a great one. There is simply not enough historical distance between the events of 2016 and earlier and today and the news keeps unfolding like the Cambridge Analytica and Facebook targeted political ad ne...

    Can?t Wait For the Sequel This book was one 1/2 WTF and 1/2 OMG! It will go down in history as the definitive first history of the scandal that has consumed our country for over two years now. It was well researched and well written. I would think skeptics of Russian meddling wo...

    This book marshals some interesting facts and figures, but I'm giving it a less-than-stellar rating because it seeks to blame one President -- in this case, Barack Obama -- for America's cyber-incompetence. The fact is, this or any other nation's ability to be hacked by outsiders has b...

    Miss Universe 2013 Moscow Description: RUSSIAN ROULETTE is a story of political skullduggery unprecedented in American history. It weaves together tales of international intrigue, cyber espionage, and superpower rivalry. After U.S.-Russia relations soured, as Vladimir Putin moved to...

    Best summary of the Russian attacks on our democracy that I've read so far. Trump is a co-conspirator, a traitor, and an illegitimate occupier of the White House. The sooner he and his circus of criminals are removed, the better. ...

    This is a comprehensive look at everything we currently know about Russian interference in the 2016 election, connections between Trump's campaign and Russia, and reactions of both campaigns and the media to the scandal. I recommend the audio, as dealing with all the Russian names was ...

    ?If this is true,? he exclaimed, ?it?s treason.? That quote, and the context it was made are towards the end of the book, so I won't tell you more. This was a fascinating read, and at times reads like a spy novel. It starts at the beginning of it all and leads the rea...

    Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin's War on America and the Election of Donald Trump is a well-researched book by veteran journalists and investigative reporters Michael Isikoff and David Corn, one of international espionage and political intrigue set in motion to interfere w...

    This would have been more fun to read - if I hadn't already watched Rachel Maddow every night for this past year of Trumpian horror. Nevertheless, even though there was virtually NOTHING new in the book, it was still interesting to read it through Isikoff's and Korn's eyes. They put ev...

    Excellent descriptive timeline of the facts involving the Russian interference in the 2016 election and the aftermath. Well researched and documented. Truth Matters! ...

    This thing read like a Tom Clancy novel where Jack Ryan and Company don?t actually get their shit together and end up saving the day. How exasperating. ...

    Not impressed. I found the writing style to be a little low brow and annoying. A lot of fluff and ugly pointless fill. A lot of name dropping. Makes the 1% look like the perverts they probably are. Trump's behavior is about par for this group. You can skip this one and never miss it. N...
