    One thought on “The King Whisperers Power Behind the Throne, from Rasputin to Rove”

    1. Some stories are so terrible, so fantastic, so unreal that you just know they had to have happened.Take Aggripina the Younger, the devoted mother would stop at nothing to secure her son’s emperorship or Rome—incest, murder, cunning, whatever it took. Or Kautilya, the BC-era warlord who knew his most powerful weapon was a beautiful woman and a lovesick enemy. How about the monster Heinrich Himmler whose desire to build a race-based society of supermen led to the twentieth century’s most hor [...]

    2. Hand someone a book about ‘history’ and more times than not they break out into uncontrollable shaking, floundering in a quagmire of forgotten names, dates and places and they mentally smell the dry dust whiffing up from the crinkled, yellowed pages. “History? Oh God, no. Dull, boring, meaningless ‘History’! Why me God?’ they cry out in despair.Yes, we’ve been conditioned well to view history as a succession of names, places and times committed to memory, that might as well exist o [...]

    3. Just when you thought that royalty, politicians and history were boring, along comes Kerwin Swint and The King Whisperers.youtu/twAAgRK12fIThe King Whisperers breaks upon our senses at the right moment. Whilst at one and the same time we are growing tired of rulers and politicians, yet being excited by films about a stuttering King who swept up all the Oscars and the most exciting Royal weddings of all time between Prince William and Kate Middleton - The King Whisperers imposes itself as a worth [...]

    4. Review of The King Whisperers by Dr. Kerwin SwintA few weeks back, I was privileged enough to twitterview* Dr. Kerwin Swint, author of The King Whisperers.*Twitterview – what a cool word, huh? Even cooler concept. Following along with a Twitter hashtag (#emlyn) and creating a real-time, online dialogue, audience members from around the world can peek in, see Q&A, and even throw in a question or two. I had a blast in March doing several!Going into it, before taking a look at his work and th [...]

    5. Seldom do I review nonfiction, but certain topics are the flint stone to story making, the greatest of these being history, the elemental roots of literary magic in so much of my favorite fiction. In my world, history can make sparks fly so, you'd have seen me waving my hand eagerly in the air like a schoolgirl when Novel Publicity Blog Tours asked for participants to review Kerwin Swint's, The King Whisperers. Though I'm certainly not a schoolgirl anymore, I adore historical facts and any opini [...]

    6. I wasn't sure what to expect of Swint's book when I first started reading it. I'm not much of a fan of politics or history unless it is in the form of ficticious intrigue, gripping the reader and taking them to and fro. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised by what I found.The author paints amazing pictures of the past (and present in come cases), allowing the reader to get a true feel for the "Whisperer" being described. The text was definitely informative and will teach the reader a great dea [...]

    7. This book falls victim to the risk that authors take when they try to compare current political figures with those of the past. Not enough time has passed to evaluate the impact of figures like Omar Suleiman. Perhaps there was not enough time to edit the information on Suleiman before it went to press, but it is sorely lacking in information about his involvement in a secret service that routinely kidnaps citizens and journalists who speak out against the government. And there is a tendency thro [...]

    8. I sat down and read this book practically cover to cover in a sitting. This doesn't happen to me with history books. Most of this book reads like a good pirate tale, and indeed several of the people mentioned could be considered pirates.He divides the book into 10 sections covering 10 different kinds of powerful people. He recounts the history of both men and women, behind the scenes, and in the open. This book was fast paced, varied within the themes, and kept things informative but usually fun [...]

    9. If you're a history buff, you probably won't like this book - it's interesting, but there are so many historical figures that are highlighted that the author is only able to give a brief overview of each one and explain some of the major accomplishments and character traits that make them the particular category of "king whisperers" that are featured in this book. It was interesting, but at times I found the classifications a little random - many of the historical figures could fit under many of [...]

    10. I read this book from a different angle than others, I think. I'm a novelist, and I often have issues creating a multidimensional antagonist. This book is an incredible resource for authors in that it gives several real-person profiles of ten different types of behind-the-scenes manipulators throughout history. It's a must-read for anyone creating this type of character for a novel.For a more in-depth review by yours-truly as well as an INTERVIEW with the author himself regarding creating believ [...]

    11. Please read my very favorable review on my blog - posted May 13, 2011. The link to this review is here:paulatohlinecalhoun1951.wordprHope you choose to read the book, and enjoy it as much as I did!

    12. A very interesting book. The books is a series of biographies, divided by the type of power behind the throne "general", "fixer" etc. The biographies were a good length and flowed very well together. There were people from around the world, some familiar and some new, and I learned quite a bit, even about those I already knew something about.

    13. Very interesting historical look at the power in politics. There were several people discussed in the book that I had no knowledge of, which is one of the points of the book: these people are the power behind the person the public sees.
