While many books have been written on the 2016 U.S. presidential election, few have been hailed as compelling as The Great Divide: Story of the 2016 US Presidential Race. Kirkus Reviews calls it “lucid, well-paced and evocative … an absorbing read.” Others have described it as “insightfully written,” “wholly engaging” and a “must-read.” Written in real time, The Great Divide presents a play-by-play (or blow-by-blow) account of all the events that made headlines during the campaign. As these events recede further in time, The Great Divide only becomes more prescient in foreshadowing what was to come.

Two days before the second presidential debate, a video surfaced of Donald Trump with the host of the TV show Access Hollywood arriving on the set of the soap opera Days of our Lives. It was from 2005. Access Hollywood was doing a segment on Trump, who was taping a cameo on the long-running daytime serial.
