Reader comments on The Unelected President novel
Posted by John Reed on
I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed The Unelected President, which I finally read this past week. I couldn't put it down! And given what's going on in Ukraine right now, I probably couldn't have picked a more relevant time to read it. I find myself thinking "What Would Medlock Do?" Kenneth Goldman
I'm enjoying your novel. To be honest I put off getting it because I wasn't sure that your nonfiction style would translate well to fiction. But I'm about 150 pages in and enjoying the story. It is well written and thought provoking. And more humor than I expected. Overall I'm finding it captivating. Great job!

I want to provide some positive feedback on your novel, The Unelected President.
I couldn't put your book down. I was eager to read it, as I agree with most of your insights from headline news and the military to baseball coaching and football strategies.
Excellent commentary on certain elements of human nature:
Politicians disguise campaigning as doing what's right;
Journalists match up solicited opinions that happen to conflict, then report those contrived conflicts, heroically, as breaking news.
I have purchased 2 more copies as gifts.
Best wishes to you and Mrs. Reed,
I have been reading your blogs for a couple of years now. Recently, I purchased your novel 'The Unelected President'.
I couldn't put it down!
This book was a great moral booster for me, even though it is, of course, fiction. I think there may be a (somewhat) parallel with the President elect Trump......if he keeps all of the establishment goons (from BOTH sides of the political fence!) away from him that is. We'll see.
I have loaned out my first copy of 'The Unelected President', and will purchase another one soon. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it!

“Finally, a president who says what he means and means what he says. I really enjoyed reading The Unelected President. Most of the nonfiction books that I have read are colored with streaks of yellow from my trusty highlighter. Your “How To” books contain many such highlights. I rarely highlight a book of fiction; however, The Unelected President is an exception.
“I appreciate the amount of research you committed to the book. It was an educational experience as well as a fun read. Being from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania I am all too familiar with the Black Panther Voter Intimidation case. As a constituent of Senator Pat Toomey I chuckled at your reference to the senator’s “Candy Desk”, however, I believe he would be more likely to store Pennsylvania made Hershey bars (my favorite) than Milky Way.
“The Impeachment Trial was my favorite chapter. It left me on an emotional roller coaster of anger and humor. I had a good laugh when President Medlock questioned in what war did the North Korean general win all those medals, while he was in the presence of American generals who were equally decorated.
“I enjoy surprise endings.
“I trust from the ending that we have not heard the last from the Medlock presidency. I’m glad that I purchased your fine book.”
Do tell Jack his Unelected President is helping my husband and me get through this horrid Presidential campaign. Each time each candidates disappoints, we fly to his entertaining book. Thanks for sending it!
