The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir
Paintball. John Bolton settles scores and brashly positions himself as the smartest of all in his book titled, The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir. The image I had while reading this book was Bolton holding a paintball gun and shooting at targets including Jim Mattis, Stephen Mnuchin, Donald Trump, Mike Pompeo and many others. I also had an image of the multiple yellow legal pads on which he recorded snippets in real time while working at the White House in preparation for this book. While some memoirs offer humble perspective, this book has Bolton’s raw ego on display on every page. Readers interested in public affairs are those most likely to appreciate this contribution to recent political history.
