Unbelievable
Unbelievable: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History | Katy Tur
130 posts | 99 read | 104 to read
Compelling this book couldnt be more timely. Jill Abramson, New York Times Book Review FROM THE RECIPIENT OF THE 2017 Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism Called "disgraceful," "third-rate," and "not nice" by Donald Trump, NBC News correspondent Katy Tur reported onand took flak fromthe most captivating and volatile presidential candidate in American history. Katy Tur lived out of a suitcase for a year and a half, following Trump around the country, powered by packets of peanut butter and kept clean with dry shampoo. She visited forty states with the candidate, made more than 3,800 live television reports, and tried to endure a gazillion loops of Elton Johns "Tiny Dancer"a Trump rally playlist staple. From day 1 to day 500, Tur documented Trumps inconsistencies, fact-checked his falsities, and called him out on his lies. In return, Trump repeatedly singled Tur out. He tried to charm her, intimidate her, and shame her. At one point, he got a crowd so riled up against Tur, Secret Service agents had to walk her to her car. None of it worked. Facts are stubborn. So was Tur. She was part of the first women-led politics team in the history of network news. The Boys on the Bus became the Girls on the Plane. But the circus remained. Through all the long nights, wild scoops, naked chauvinism, dodgy staffers, and fevered debates, no one had a better view than Tur. Unbelievable is her darkly comic, fascinatingly bizarre, and often scary story of how America sent a former reality show host to the White House. Its also the story of what it was like for Tur to be there as it happened, inside a no-rules world where reporters were spat on, demeaned, and discredited. Tur was a foreign correspondent who came home to her most foreign story of all. Unbelievable is a must-read for anyone who still wakes up and wonders, Is this real life?

I've always liked Katy Tur and her snarkiness. She not only shares her journey through the craziness of the 2016 presidential campaign but much of her personal history. She is funny, smart, snarky and has a foul mouth. I adore her even more! I can't believe how many details of the election cycle I had forgotten! (Blocked out?!?)

If you are choosing between hard copy or audio, go audio. Katy is a great narrator, no big surprise.

GingerAntics I‘m sure we all have a type of PTSD where we‘ve forgotten in an attempt to preserve our sanity. 11mo
SimplyShelia @GingerAntics I absolutely believe you're right. I actually gasped several times because I couldn't believe I had forgotten certain moments. It left me in awe that even after all those things, America really did elect that man. 11mo
GingerAntics It‘s truly unbelievable, isn‘t it? This is an aptly titled book. I think part of it may be that we‘ve been so desensitised to his madness, two years in, that it‘s easier to block stuff out than keep a running tally. 11mo
SimplyShelia Definitely! The, "this is not normal," mantra becomes difficult after it becomes the new normal. It will take much longer than his tenure as president to undo the harm he had done on every level, and that is not including the harm we won't be able to undo. 11mo

Eye rolling, stomach clenching view from the front seats of the election campaign. I don‘t see that conditions are any different for 2020. My American friends please tell me there‘s someone else ready to step up?
I didn‘t have a book mark with a giant orange so I‘ve gone for a giant peach instead 😁

Kaye I have yet to hear of any definite contenders for 2020, but I‘ll bet there‘ll be a truckload trying out to run against him. I don‘t even want to think he‘d get 4 more years. 4 more hours is way too many in my opinion. YUK. 1y

Amiable My sanity is literally hanging onto the hope than we only have to get through 2020 and then we can kick his giant, racist, misogynistic, science-denying, continually lying ass to the curb. Please, God and millions of voters ... 🙌🏼 (edited) 1y
Chrissyreadit We have some amazing contenders who are possible. The DNC May be its own worst enemy in this issue. And the electorate college- it is set up so that the GOP will perpetually gain the votes of several states. 1y
Kaye @Chrissyreadit You hit the nail on the head about the Electoral college. I really dislike the system the way it is. I wish they‘d do away with it and just allow each VOTE to count . It‘d be a much more fair system, just my opinion. My state has one of the highest number of electoral votes, but we have more registered Republicans that vote straight ticket no matter who is running . I hope some of them wake up before 2020. 1y
Annl I am a Canadian living right in the middle of Florida. (Before you ask, grandchildren are here) just a dose of what I see every day, huge Trump signs and smaller ones offering weapons training. Although, one bright light, I am aware of one family that have take their huge Trump flag down. 1y
Chrissyreadit @Kaye I am also in a crazy red state. I struggle all the time with little things- like hearing blatant lies told at a poll place by a poll worker to a voter. We need to increase education and civic engagement desperately too. But ultimately change will come, I just hope before the damage destroys our future. (Climate change specifically) 1y
Chrissyreadit @Annl I keep reminding myself the March For Our Lives Kids came out of Florida and not to give up! 1y
Annl @Chrissyreadit I agree. My grandson told me during the last presidential election that is was time there was a female president because men had the job too long. I know we will be okay! And I try to avoid streets where signs that make me question people are located. Florida is a strange and beautiful state. 1y

I enjoyed this but it wasn‘t quite as insightful as I hoped. I would have liked more social commentary and more explanation as to why, despite everything, people voted for Trump! It was still really interesting though, to read an eyewitness account of the Trump campaign through the eyes of a journalist. 👍🏻

This is a great look back at what it was like to cover the DT campaign and is a good addition to the record of what will hopeful be an anomaly of history. That being said, I‘m really sick of the man and burned out on books about him, so I only listened to this now because I‘ve had it on hold forever. I recommend it overall, but if you‘re anything like me, you need a break right now!

Jess7 Loved this book! 1y

Book #2 finished. This was such a painful read! So much stuff has happened since the election that I had forgotten a lot of the stuff that happened before the election. I really can‘t believe he won. What a joke. Upsetting read. But it‘s a good book if you can handle reliving that time. I have been eating candy all afternoon so time for some fruit. #24in48

MicheleinPhilly Right? I read this book recently and just kept thinking, “Oh remember when we all thought that would be the end of it?” “NO, this will surely put an end to it?” “Huh, I mean he has to be done at this point, right?” 😔 1y

3.5 ⭐️

A good listen.
Nothing really new, but it was helpful to refresh on some of the details. Tur was there from the start, & at times was targeted by Trump, leading to her needing a security detail.

Definitely worth a listen if you enjoy journalism. Tur gives a great account of life on the road for a correspondent.

This was a tough read. Setting aside my personal feelings for the man currently occupying the Oval Office, I can‘t even begin to imagine following someone for a year and a half. The thought alone exhausts me.

But this book also reminded me of the total shitshow that passed for reporting in 2016. A shitshow that is going to begin again once the midterms pass. 😩 Here‘s hoping the media has learned some lessons.

I finished this audiobook on my walk today. I found it very interesting and informative, however it did just remind me of how many bizarre and as the title suggests unbelievable things took place during the American election. I also found the insight into how intense reporting on people like Trump can be really fascinating but at times I did feel my attention wander slightly. Overall good but not amazing, if you‘ve read it what did you think?

Samplergal I read it and it was amazingly scary, imho. Katy wrote a good diary, not great writing, imho, but she sure did journal the clown show. Scary stuff. 2y
Christine11 @Samplergal I agree about the writing not being great but like you say she did document everything that was going on well and it was definitely scary! 😊 (edited) 2y

The whole Trump campaign was literally unbelievable, but this - a journalist‘s account on the campaign trail - hits pretty much every high (and low) point that I remember, rushing towards the finish line like a truck that has lost its brakes barreling down a mountain in the faint hopes of coming across one of those runaway truck ramps.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Katy Tur is very smart and quite funny. This book was an easy read, and the only reason I am giving it a 4/5 stars instead of a 5/5 rating is because I didn‘t love the jumping timeline (semi-linear timeline). I would have preferred a more traditional true linear timeline. I especially liked learning about Katy Tur‘s parents. This is a #mustread! #audiobook #Politics #partmemoir #KatyTur #bookreview #JPBookreview

This was sort of a memoir about her time covering the Trump presidential campaign. She relates some first hand experiences at Trump rallies that sound quite frightening. I found that she often went off on a tangent in the middle of relating some event, though, and this got confusing (at least it does on audio).

Sweettartlaura I agree. As much as I liked it, it felt too personal at times. When I heard it had started as a piece for Marie Claire, that made a little more sense. 2y

I downloaded this audiobook on impulse and I honestly can‘t even remember why, since I‘ve mostly been ignoring the political books lately. That said, I thought this was a great memoir. Very well written and hits all the highlights of the campaign we all remember, as well as some behind-the-scenes stuff and an inside look at the world of political reporting.

As a memoir about Katy and the experience of being on the road with a campaign I found this fascinating, and it acted as a good reminder of the Trump campaign. Her style on audio was casual yet still specific and felt like a friend catching you. It is not chronological which was a tad confusing on audio and it‘s not the go to book for detailed analysis although what insights she gives are credible and interesting.

VeganCleopatra I liked this one, but I think one where Tur doesn't hold back would have been pretty funny. 2y

Between follow-up appointments & happy to have my Kindle so I could finish this one. I was immediately engaged & absorbed by Tur's account of covering Donald Trump's campaign in the 2016 election. In turns humorous & horrifying given the outcome & while I avoided most of the Trump coverage specifics at the time, what she writes about is familiar-but with her take as a front row observer to the madness. Great if you are into politics & journalism.

AmyG I like how she included info about herself...her bio. Her parents were amazing...wih their history in journalism. I watch her on TV but really became a fan after reading this book. She is also a big fannof the band Phish...so I get a chuckle when she throws lyrics into her reports. (edited) 2y

Really enjoyed reading Katy Tur's memoir from her time covering the wild ride that was the 2016 presidential election. It never felt gossipy or written to elicit a reaction, just merely showcasing her personal perspective. Definitely one to read if your searching for an inside look at Trump that isn't all fire and fury.
