Debriefing the President, Mini Review

Debriefing the President by John Nixon

4 out of 5 stars

Wow, where do you even start with this. This book is exactly what it says it will be, and the insights gleaned from the author are fascinating. While there’s no real bombshell revelations, there is a lot to digest here. Learning about who Saddam Hussein was as a person, tracking the complicated history of both Hussein and Iraq, and finally learning from an on-the-ground perspective exactly how useless the Iraq war was. This book gives a view to the actual human that Hussein was, without sympathizing with his cruelty. I listened to this book as an audiobook which was read by the author, I highly recommend this because the author’s voice lends a natural feel to the narrative.
