Ruthless Ambition: The Rise and Fall of Chris Christie
by Louis Manzo
In this searing tell-all, former New Jersey State Assemblyman Louis Manzo recounts an extraordinary tale of political ruthlessness, corruption, and greed while also telling the story of being caught in the center of one of the most egregious political scandals in modern-day history: the Bid Rig III sting operation masterminded by Governor Chris Christie.
Manzo discusses how the blind ambitions of Christie and his staff entailed capturing a governorship and the patronage jobs that accompany it, and then parlaying that office into a shot at the presidency.
Big Boy then makes the convincing case for how the governor is not the champion of reform he is depicted as, but rather a sinister political figure deftly vying for a seat in the Oval Office, making this book a must-read for anyone with an interest in the 2016 presidential election.
