Description

Anchor of the number one news show on cable, The Kelly File, Fox News Channel's Megyn Kelly writes her much anticipated book, a revealing and surprising memoir detailing her rise as one of the most respected journalists working today. From the values and lessons that have shaped her career, to her time at the center of the chaotic 2016 Republican presidential primary, this book offers an inside look at an uncompromising woman's journey to the top of the news business.

In the two and half years since her show The Kelly File premiered on the Fox News Channel, Megyn Kelly has cemented her reputation as one of the most respected and hardest hitting journalists in America. Tackling issues from both sides of the aisle, live in prime time five nights a week, Kelly has embraced difficult questions

Now in her debut book, Kelly goes behind the scenes of the stories and the storms that have made her one of the most talked about public figures in America. From growing up in a tough love family where she had to earn her praise, to her father's sudden, tragic death while she was still in high school, to the news stories that launched her journalism career, Kelly traces the values and experiences

With the same bold and brave voice that has won her fans across the political divide, she opens up about the controversy that made her a household name, telling her side of Donald Trump's feud with her, while sharing never-before-heard details about the infamous first Republican debate, its challenging aftermath, and how she persevered through it all, winning widespread admiration while maintaining her professionalism. Speaking candidly about the career-changing decision that led her to "settle for more"

Throughout her meteoric career, Megyn Kelly has been a source of fascination and speculation. Men and women, Republicans and Democrats, viewers of Fox News and the network's most diehard detractors have all sought to understand what she stands for and what matters to her. With this deeply personal account of her life, she answers critics and fans alike. At once humorous, uplifting, and revealing, Settle for More offers unparalleled insight into one of the most charismatic and intriguing television personalities in a generation, and will be one of the most talked about books from an influential voice unlike any other.

    I selected this audiobook after seeing bombshell. There were certain parts of the film I was disappointed with and I wanted more first hand accounts of the events. There's so much I don't agree with this woman on. Some of the things she's said in the past few years have been so stupid, even after reading this, I don't understand how she came to the conclusions she did when she is so smart. She does, however, despite some problematic assertions, speak truth to power and still somehow manages to be strong. I think that's an important lesson to learn from as many kinds of people as we can in a divided time.

    Megyn Kelly is a traitor and a liar. She straight-up looks like one of the elite villains from the Hunger Games in the cover photo. Hillary Clinton is a traitor too, but I would bet money this book is disinformation meant to sabotage the right-wing. Megyn Kelly is a FAKE conservative.

    The Clintons are as crooked as the day is long. I thought the book was very informative. Who would ever pay Slick Willie a half million dollars for a speech, unless it was a bribe. The Clintons have lied to the public throughout their political careers. Who can forget, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman," Slick Will declared. Even though this book and other books point out their indiscretions and crimes, I have doubt that they will ever pay for their crimes. Some people are above the law. Two thumbs up for the book. Two thumbs down for the Clintons.

    Anyone who reads this book and does not come away with the feeling that the Clintons have been taking the US for a ride, for a very long time, should pour another cup of coffee and read the book again. As has already been said, it is well-researched and the "coincidences" are beyond extraordinary. It should also be noted that the Clinton Foundation has been able to amass a bank balance never before experienced by a legitimate charity, in such a short time, without a major disaster or other such occurrence for which major funding would have been needed. This book should be required reading for every voter, before the upcoming election.

    I make it a habit,and encourage others to read everything available past and present on political power holders. And although Peter is touted as politically neutral,he is not. However,he is an able and thorough investigator and apt writer. What he illustrates,in a very limited way( since he could have delved all the way back to the seventies in his search for political brokerage for cash) is pretty much exactly why the left declined to embrace her in 2008,and was deeply divided on supporting her in 2016. There is just as much misdoing,and downright selling out of the American public on Ms. Clinton's part,including Russian influence trading and profiteering as on Donald Trump. The only difference being Ms. Clinton is much more intelligent with her politics and her cash.

    For those who have followed the Clintons from their political childhood(so to speak) from Rose Law and Dan Lassiter to her reckless (and narcissist) husband who foisted NAFTA and financial deregulation on the nation,while she served as a calculating politico who had cheered the Iraq War and helped pass George W. Bush?s regressive 2005 bankruptcy bill, to her role in overseeing the expansion of the national-security state, encouraging construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, and backing approval of the Trans-Pacific Partnership among other evils,much of this comes as no surprise. But if you are not as versed in Clinton,this can be an eye opener.

    Here there be slant,there do be; beyond the slant and in the details(that can be chased down and researched by any dilligent reader) you find the light throws stark understanding of why they have always been the left's least embraced. Politics for cash and Clintons are as inimical as the Industrialist barons ever were.

    However,caveat-there are inaccuracies and assumptions made that illustrate that the author has a strong political bias and agenda. Do your own diligence on his findings.

    Near the end of Bill Clinton's second term, he established a non-profit agency for worldwide charitable purposes. However, the Clintons are skilled in blurring the boundaries between charitable, political, and charity. Peter Schweizer provides a detailed referenced book describing contiguous series of events involving requests to Hillary Clinton as U.S. Senator and Secretary of State, monies paid to Bill for speeches, and donations to the Clinton Foundation. Although the author doesn't indicate that political corruption is difficult to prove, he does state that much of the Clintons' relationship with the Clinton Foundation could be considered unethical. With the Clinton Foundation so much in the news, this book does provide the inquiring mind with a good overview of activities of the Clinton Foundation in the 21st century.

    This is a powerful, unbelievably well researched book that exposes the contradictions within the Clinton dynasty, although it is so information driven that I could not take it all in without reading it slowly. Still, for ordinary citizens, non-scholars, it shows just how carefully the Clintons, both experienced and knowledgeable lawyers, have skirted the outer edges of our legal and justice system to take advantage of the power they wield within their own party, the Democrats, to advantage themselves time and time again. In much the same way that Bill Clinton exploited the word “is” in his definition of sexual relations, they have exploited the word “fundraising”, for themselves and their Clinton Foundation, during their tenure in government and outside of it for decades. There is little more to say other than that a reader with an open mind will learn how they hobnob with the rich and famous, make deals with shady governments and often shadier operatives, disregard criminal behavior in their associates, and enrich themselves and their friends in the process, which appears to be their primary goal. The Clintons are very smart. They know how to create an unsolvable puzzle, a maze that is unfathomable and therefore untraceable with regard to their personal and public behavior. From their secret server to their interactions and speeches in foreign countries, their activities read like a web of intrigue that could be found in a novel, but not in reality. However, this truth is stranger than fiction. Because of their expertise in covering their tracks, it is simply not possible to directly point a finger at any particular actions they have taken. There is no straight line that leads to them; rather, there is a circuitous route of coincidences of such sheer magnitude, that seem to involve the enrichment of the Clintons, the Clinton Foundation, and those they have dealings with or arrange meetings for, with heads of state or other influential politicians and leaders, from whom they then curry favor or enrich themselves or other friends and participants, that it is difficult to escape the inevitable conclusion that the Clintons know how to work the system for their own benefit, first and foremost. It appears that the authority of the Clintons knows know bounds. If they see opportunity, they know how to exploit it; they are the perfect opportunists. Oddly, or perhaps for obvious reasons, depending on who is interested in the question of their behavior patterns, the current government, under Barack Obama, appears not even willing to allow or provide a proper investigation by the Justice Department into their machinations because all the party, and those involved in its hierarchy and in the higher echelons of the administration, seem to care only about winning an election. After reading this book, it feels that their activities, and what is in the best interest of the country, seems secondary to the needs of the party, the Democrats, and the Clintons, who want to retain the White House at all costs. The Clintons are very powerful indeed; they have done their duty for their party; they have been loyal, and the powers that be believe that they deserve to be rewarded. They are well funded and connected and seem to be coated in Teflon, often avoiding investigation into their questionable activities. The media, already indicted for its bias, refuses to cover their “escapades” honestly or aggressively, and instead, seems to spin the news in favor of the candidates they prefer, avoiding the reporting of actual news. This book makes the point that America seems to be at a very important crossroads which will affect future generations for years.
