Nightmare Scenario: Inside the Trump Administration's Response to the Pandemic That Changed History
Infighting. If someone you loved died of covid-19, take a pass on reading a book by journalists Yasmeem Abutaleb and Damian Paletta titled, Nightmare Scenario: Inside the Trump Administration's Response to the Pandemic That Changed History. Your heart will be broken again when you read about chaos, incompetence and infighting as the Trump administration responded to the pandemic. For readers interested in public policy, reading almost five hundred pages on this subject will involve reliving a recent experience with the guidance of journalists. This is the story of a tragedy in how a crisis was mismanaged. Despite my focus on what failed as described in this book, it’s fair to say that the authors also call attention to good things that were done. The running count of deaths as time went on overshadowed what good steps were taken in response to the virus. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Nightmare Scenario from amazon.com.
