Publisher's Summary

The former Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison in the Trump White House provides a jaw-dropping look into the corruption and controversy of the current administration.

Few have been a member of Donald Trump’s inner orbit longer than Omarosa Manigault Newman. Their relationship has spanned 15 years - through four television shows, a presidential campaign, and a year by his side in the most chaotic, outrageous White House in history. But that relationship has come to a decisive and definitive end, and Omarosa is finally ready to share her side of the story in this explosive, jaw-dropping account.

A stunning tell-all and takedown from a strong, intelligent woman who took every name and number, Unhinged is a must-listen for any concerned citizen.

One of the poorer stories I've heard.

I went into Newman's book with no expectations which was for the best. I found her story quite boring and narcissistic. Newman is clearly a very intelligent and articulate person, which makes it even harder for me to believe that she actually trusted Trump. Throughout the book she was more focused on her own ego (like Trump) and how she was a reality TV star. The story was shallow, seemed to be based more on anecdotes and I wonder if she truly cares about all the causes she mentions. I will give her credit for narrating her own book though, very well spoken and relaxing to hear.

Enthralling!

Omarosa skilfully captivates her audience with her thorough account of events that have been of morbid fascination to the world. It has been incredible using her unique perspective to fill in gaps of knowledge we have in the public’s view. Thank you too for those tantalising snippets ... who is having or had a relationship in the WH? Who is the family member working against things. All will be revealed in the fullness of time no doubt. As an extra bonus, Amarosa narrates her book herself. I’m loving this trend in audiobooks. Thanks for your book and good luck for the future!

It is an OK book

The strong aspect of the audible is the reader. She has a really nice voice and that makes for a pleasurable experience in listening to her book. The book itself is alright as a description of what she remembers as the important moments she had in the White House. But it is not really a profound analysis of the Trump Administration. Omarosa glimpses over those, yet it is somewhat interesting to hear them at least for the new information they give from her personal perspective.

Interesting.

I do find this an interesting listen from an insider perspective'...… but I find it self-serving and too little too late as well. I find she's trying too hard to write her own history, before history does it for her, so history will record her well. It is interesting to read from one insider's perspective - but from someone living far away from what is happening in the USA, I find her self-justification shallow. Yes she was a woman in the inner sanctum …… she was aware all was not well for a long time prior to being evicted from the inner sanctum.... and now like the high achiever she is, she is making the most of it by writing a book. Interesting read. Good insight. Self serving. Was it worth it - yes.

What a story

If only half of it is true we ought to be very concerned. Certainly is worth a read.

Complete self-indulgence (yes, even for Omarosa)

The title of “Unhinged” leads you down the garden path.

You would be forgiven for believing this was about an unhinged Donald Trump, but that’s not quite so, it is more about the author. I think a more accurate title would of been: The Life & Times of Omarosa Manigault Newman. While I wouldn’t have bought it, if that’s the kind of thing you like, you will like this book, it tell the story of Omarosa, as written by Omarosa, given that, I would rate it 3*, 4* with a different narrator. From the start it’s read with over the top and completely unnecessary dramatics, like only Omarosa could, after almost 3 hours in I couldn’t take anymore.

Unhinged?

She sure is! I listened in awe as she justified herself and her reasons for staying. This book is like watching a car crash.

I have to listen to this a second time

This is a gripping story. So sad this is real in the US at this time. The political angst in my country pales into insignificance compared to the waste of energy spent in damage control with a deranged mad man at the helm. His reign is a great lesson to the world. Omarosa is a gutsy lady.

This woman is a spy

This woman is fooling no one. Posing as some black rights martyr when in fact she leaks for trump. Arrogant, self important, delusional. A most irritating book.

Too little and WAY too late. Is like a long CV / apology for endorsing you know who.

Unhinged seems to describe Omarosa or Trump

Not a Trump fan but this book is just ridiculous and Omarosa seems to be very, VERY self absorbed. In addition she just seems to go off on little rants and spends a lot of time blowing her own trumpet (pardon the pun!) and because of that she doesn’t do her valid points justice. For example I’m not sure there’s any need for her autobiography to be telling us what designer dress she wore to an emmys over a decade ago (pink fuschia, blah blah blah in case you cared)

Her speaking is clear however her occasional Trump impressions are just stupid, awful and are simply unnecessary.
Her performance is also belittled by her seemingly trying to add emotion to certain areas but it just comes across as though someone is reading to a child and is pretty poor. When she isn’t doing that though her reading is good.

Personally I would recommend avoiding this book...if you’re looking for a decent Trump-linked book check out Comeys “a higher loyalty” which is MUCH better.

Interesting but becomes grating.

I enjoyed the story and hearing the inside of the White House stories but Omarosa's views come across as 'he said, she said'. There's no doubt Donald Trump is a lair and a loose canon, but listening to Omarosa gets tiresome as she can be condescending.

I'm certainly not a Trump fan, so listen to it but take the views expressed with a pinch of salt (and be aware of the high and mighty opinions).

Very disappointed!

Self serving, selfish, doesn’t care about your nation, now shame, and I’m not even talking about Trump! Good insight into another deplorable White House person who would still be there if she hadn’t been sacked!

It was certainly difficult to ignore the resume being promoted throughout the book, but an interesting listen none the less.

More about Omarosa's desire for success than Trump

I had expected to read about an Unhinged President, instead it was ramblings about how Omarosa was shocked, saddened, or troubled by Trump's actions until she is offered a new position of power within the Trump hierarchy.

Probably the worst of the Trump books thus far, really looking forward to Bob Woodward's Fear, save you money.

A fair holiday read

interesting but not compelling. not sure I always believed her motivations. came across sometimes as covering uncomfortable tracks to rewrite her history with Trump now that she is distancing herself from him.

Good to get an insiders perspective on the White House

Omarosa does a great job with the story and provides some interesting nuggets. The listener can’t help but empathise with her experiences. The voiceover is particularly entertaining with the Trump mimic!

An interesting read

Not knowing who Omarosa is particularly I wondered if her villain status was deserved. after reading I think she demonstrates credibility in her reporting of the WH organisation. She also reads it well... good pace and lively enough.
worth a listen for an insight but some of those self-worthy-in-the-face-of-all-others passages do reduce credibility a bit.

Great Audible book...

Well written and narrated by the author. Glad Omarosa is on the side of good now. Trump and Pence must be removed from office. Clearly this book is a first hand account of Trump's steep mental decline since gaining office.
