You gotta read The Fifth Risk by Michael Lewis. The nonfiction 1984.

The book is about how the government manages risk to us, the citizens, through 3 agencies we know little about. Agriculture, Energy and Commerce and what Trump has done to ruin them.

It is a short read and and yes, it will piss you off but it will also inform you about what those three agencies do that i, for one, had no idea about. Important shit that keeps us safe.

It will give you an appreciation for unsung government workers and their dedication to public service.

He is superb at distilling complex topics into enjoyable reads.
Thanks for the heads up about this book.

3. understand, I too am sick of Trump books but this is different

this isn't unnamed sources, it reminds me of Imperial Life in the Emerald City (different stupid GOP President, same incompetence).
