As a native speaker of a pretty small language, some English exposure is inevitable.

That book isn't translated to Norwegian, and I even prefer Audible over the domestic alternatives.

Anyway, practicing several languages is a good thing, IMO. It is great practice for the brain.

I would like to learn even a third language. German or Spanish, probably, even though I have a strange fascination with Russian.

Of course its a good thing, I was just surprised to see you listening to such a US focused book, and never imagined there were many people who would listen to John Bolton outside the US.

It's a bit of an occupational hazard. Anyway, it was recommended to me by a friend who is an awesome political strategist. So I decided to give it a shot.

Bottom line is that US foreign policy has been a complete circus, and Trump is both clueless and totally without principles. But I guess everyone already knew that.

Pretty popular up here as well.  Though Bolton may not be a popular figure for his political views, people are interested in the "inside scoop."  No doubt Mary Trump's "tell all" is popular for the same reason.  My wife already has her copy.
