Enjoyable, insightful, and suspenseful. A unique perspective on the story that has obsessed journalists since the 2016 victory of President Trump. All too brief, though.

Fabulous book by a fearless journalist. Don't believe the bad reviews, they are written by the people who are fighting James O'Keefe and trying to keep you from the truth! Buy this book - it is eye opening! Watch his undercover videos and see for yourself. You would never know half of what is going on in these big corporations if it wasn't for his undercover reporting. Not only is he reporting, he is getting results. He is shedding light on the biggest corporations and what they are really doing behind closed doors. If you value your freedom of speech and your rights as an American you owe it to yourself to read this book.
