This is a fast, fascinating and terrifying read. Donald Trump’s dysfunction has been on display for over three years and I’ve always wondered what makes someone so damaged and insecure. This book helps explain the family dynamics that set this process in motion for Donald but also for the other siblings, particularly the family namesake, Freddy, Mary Trump’s father. It has to be seen as a courageous act to go against such a domineering set of siblings, one currently the U.S. President, who ultimately acted together to disinherit Mary and her brother. The Trump base will not like this book but I found it mesmerizing.
