Publisher's Summary

From Donna Brazile, former DNC chair and legendary political operative, an explosive and revealing new look at the 2016 election: the first insider account of the Russian hacking of the DNC and the missteps by the Clinton campaign and Obama administration that enabled a Trump victory.
In the fallout of the Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee - and as chaos threatened to consume the party's convention - Democrats turned to a familiar figure to right the ship: Donna Brazile. Known to millions from her frequent TV appearances, she was no stranger to high stakes and dirty opponents, and the longtime Democratic strategist had a reputation in Washington as a one-stop shop for fixing sticky problems.
What Brazile found at the DNC was unlike anything she had experienced before - and much worse than is commonly known. The party was beset by infighting, scandal, and hubris while reeling from a brazen and wholly unprecedented attempt by a foreign power to influence the presidential election. Plus, its candidate, Hillary Clinton, faced an opponent who broke every rule in the political playbook.
Packed with never-before-reported revelations about what went down in 2016, Hacks is equal parts campaign thriller, memoir, and road map for the future. With Democrats now in the wilderness after this historic defeat, Hacks argues that staying silent about what went wrong helps no one. Only by laying bare the missteps, miscalculations, and crimes of 2016, Brazile contends, will Americans be able to salvage their democracy.

Russians Russians Russians etc

Blimey this goes on a bit about the Russians - they lost Hillary the election you know! (Nothing about her being a useless candidate, it was the Russians that did it). When she’s not talking at huge length about conspiracy theories there is nothing new here. Did I mention the Russians?

Donna Brazile - I love Delores

I have been interested in how the US elected Trump and what went wrong at the DNC. The sound bites and headlines about this book do it a disservice because it is a more rounded and intriguing personal insight into what went wrong in the DNC and how a foreign power undermined US democracy with Trump as the consequence of a rotting system. I loved Donna Brazile’s honesty and unique perspective. I hope she never loses Delores. A must read for any Democrat and anyone interested in what happens if a enemy power infiltrates your democracy.
