Mary L. Trump Phd's new book Too Much and Never Enough is not really the hit piece that the right claims it to be. It's a good fast read of 211 pages that delves more into a seriously dysfunctional family, beginning with Fred Trump Sr.

Mary Trump's credentials as a Doctorate in Psychology serves her and the reader well, as she is able to almost clinically report the insidious exposed nerve in the Trump family that created the man we see as President Donald Trump. It pays off well in exactly how Donald came to be the person that he is and why he is the way he is! Having read the book and THEN watching him and listening closely to what he says and the way he says it, I'm able to stand back and say "Oh, I get it..."

We are in what will be a dark chapter in American history, not just because of Donald Trump, or his family, but because of the current political environment that allowed Trump to not only seriously run for office, but a climate that allowed him to get elected in the first place. What he thinks, how he thinks and why he thinks his way are all clearly spelled out to a point where I almost felt sorry for him and then, with the help of the book, came back round full circle to saying to myself; "this is not good, and these are the reasons why"...

If you are interested in this man's inner self, not just from a political perspective, but both a human and now historical perspective, then I recommend that you get on the same plain by reading the book and then looking forward to watching him in the three presidential debates next month!

exactly, do you think people voted for trump because their life was grand? Our country experienced a social, moral, economic, and religious decline and people looked for Trump, a man for the people, of answers- and that is whats going in the history books
