I really enjoyed it, found it really interesting and came away with a lot of respect for this woman. Shes very intelligent and caring and tough, she's had to be, and she never blackmailed trump and would have stayed quiet if things hadn't evolved the way they had. she directed and wrote many of her films.

Koen He isn't. He is mentioned and only plays a very limited role in this narrative. It mostly deals with the period before he came into this.

She suggests from time to time that I - or, indeed, she - should prepare some mushroomy dish to satisfy my cravings, but I feel all guilted out. Suppose some of it got onto her plate by accident? So I politely refuse. Then she feels guilted out.

But now, oh happy day, I no longer want to eat mushrooms! Indeed, the very thought of

I zipped through this one thanks to a day-long power outage!

This was honestly a pretty enjoyable read. Stormy comes across as honest and genuine and she is legitimately funny. I laughed out loud at her Shark Week comments.

Her description of her encounter with you-know-who is stomach-churning but still funny. I like her, and what I really like about her is that not only is she comfortable with and confident in herself, she knows a bull-shitter when she sees one.

She did not have an easy upbring
She's ready to share her story. Have a feeling that most of this will be quotes such as:

“Guys, you did great! Bodyguards and stylists?” I went with the black one, a Capella cutout bandage dress which fit perfectly, and kept Thunder and Lightning—my nickname for my breasts—in check.

Being a rape survivor does not define me at all. If anything, what was ingrained into me was the expectation that I would not be believed if I ever asked for help. It’s why I keep highlighting this whole passage, my

This is straight talk. Stormy Daniels gives an unvarnished account of her childhood, her career and the brief episode in her life that thrust her into fame.

She had a stable start until her father left. Her mother sank into poverty, depression, alcohol and abusive men. With the exception an annual week or two with dad (that had the benefit of food and cleanliness) she had to fend for herself.

As she was graduating from high school with honors, a school paper editorship and other achievements, she

Full disclosure on “Full Disclosure”: I liked it. It was a quick and riveting read. Stephanie Clifford (a.k.a. Stormy Daniels) had a shitty childhood, populated with completely ignorant and/or downright abusive adults; was sexually molested for years and told no one; wasn’t believed when she finally did tell an adult; started stripping in high school; still graduated as an A-student; made a decent living off of stripping which led to work in the porn industry, where she essentially learned to be ...more

Stormy Daniels once ran for public office using the slogan "screwing people honestly". This book very much lives up to the slogan. Stormy is forthright, smart and funny. She has an interesting story and she feels at the same time very familiar and quite alien. But it is not her profession that makes her alien. It is more the unembarrassed manner in which Americans speak of money and fame that makes many of them seem like a people apart. The media of course has focused on the handful of zingers i ...more

Saw her briefly on tv and she peaked my interest, enough to check this out from the library. Never would i think I would trust a porn star over a president, but she has my vote of confidence! She is smart, funny and to the point. I only wish when she was young she had met a rocket scientist with a cool car verses a dancer, she may have had a very different life path because she has the brains to have been anything. Who would think such a brief coupling would warrant such a pay off and ultimate u ...more

With humor and heart sexy and strong star Stormy Daniels describes the oft bumpy and muddy roads taken towards reaching domination in the adult film industry. More than a tawdry tabloid headliner, Stormy - much like her hero Tina Fey - broke the boy's-only barrier and (not so much like Tina Fey) wrote and directed some of America's finest cinematic narrative erotica. Sure, you can flip through the pages of this memoir until you get to the salacious details, but you'll only be denying yourself th ...more

Well written and engaging. A story that needs to be told about an unlikely American hero. I recommend the book to anyone with an open mind. I thoroughly enjoyed this account of her life.

Let us meet Stormy Daniels anew. A wholesome blue-eyed blonde in demure white tank top and modestly bared arms smiles winsomely at us from the Oct 2018 cover of Full Disclosure, a far cry from the usual big hair and naked 36DD. Michael Avenatti wrote the introductory note. You may have heard of him.

With candor, Daniels writes of where she has been and what has happened since. Disclose she did, but did she fully? A thong was left on. A small part of her remains private still, I think. Along the
To quote the Drive by Truckers, "Meanwhile the whole world suffers from hunger and meanness
But we're more concerned with the president's penis"

There are definitely worse books related to Trump, but ultimately this falls short of being recommendable. Its half standard biography and half the expanded story of her tryst with Trump and the subsequent belated insanity that resulted. The former is...fine in the ghost-written, disposable celeb bio style, though not something I would have gone through a

Don't judge me!
As a writer, Ms. Daniels makes Omarosa look like Hemingway.
For those who care, it's Chapter 3.

I don't think this is doing too well, and people seem embarrassed to admit they're reading it. This book is funny and I think it's way better than the Amy Poehler type memoirs that people love.

Recommends it for: college and adult readers, concepts discussed are difficult to understand.
Recommended to Richard by: The entire Trump / Clifford (Daniel's affair)
The short version first.

While there have been many salacious events in American history involving governmental office holders, few have been near to attention garnering as the events involving our current president, Donald J. Trump, and Stephanie Clifford, an adult film star, screenwriter, and director using the pseudonym, Stormy Daniels. The events detailed in a small section of Ms. Clifford’s book written under her pseudonym. The book is entitled Full Disclosure.

I really loved reading about Stormy and her life first hand. She has quite an interesting story and, whilst everything with Donald Trump was covered adequately, that was not the main take away from the book. What I found to be the most interesting and memorable inclusions was the author’s intellect and personality. My outsider perspective was that Stormy Daniels was, what some might call, “ditsy” or an “airhead” but her intellect as a creator (including writing and directing) and savvy business ...more

I couldn't NOT read this book. I had to know! I had to! And Stormy does not disappoint. It's ridiculous, a little trashy, full of drama, and I adored it. Trump is not the MAIN focus of this book, of course he has key importance, but Stormy does more than just center on him, she goes into depth about her shitty childhood, what led her into stripping, and then eventually porn. She talks about her many romances, her love for horses, how much she has overcome, and of course Trump. Trump and his weir ...more

Page turner, eye opener

I learned so many disparate things! From behind the scenes of a porn film, to the inner workings of corrupt men in power. But one thing I can’t shake... it made my stomach churn when I read about Stormy’s sexual assault. This happens so frequently, the American people have become numb to these horrific lives children are subjected to every day. Innocent, wide-eyed children who are supposed to trust the very people who extinguish their dreams. Peel the endless layers of pol

Loved this book! Whatever you think of Stormy Daniels, she is without doubt funny, ferociously smart, brutally honest and genuinely likeable. She has become a respected writer, actor, director and business woman, taking care of herself since she was a child and with little to no help from any adult who was supposed to do it for her.

Born to a disinterested father and a mother who pretty much checked out when Stormy was eight. The parents of her best friend believed Stormy was white trash and woul

Do I admit I read this? Should I feel shame? If you read the book, you can decide. Very matter of fact, not overly dramatized and only one apparent intention: telling the truth. She’s not ashamed of her life, so why should we be? If only we could all stand behind our reality like this.

This is a story about an American woman’s ability to face life head on. It’s not smut, it’s not over the top and it’s fascinating to see her life unfold. The Trump encounter is there but not nearly as interesting

It is interesting to learn Ms Daniels life story. I wish she had warned about the violent euthanisia of her beloved first horse! SPOILER I'm happy to provide to save other animal lovers PTSD from that part of the story. Daniels experience with euthanasia was tragic, but her blanket remark that horse euthanasia is always violent is blatantly not based upon facts. The rest of her book rings true, but far tool little detail is focused on the political situation she's embroiled in, detai

I didn't really know what to expect from this but it turned out to be a really good read. It's not salacious, but Ms. Daniels holds nothing back. She comes across as very bright and articulate and incredibly honest and forthcoming. I'm not into porn, but I'd bet that her screenplays are very good too.
This is a decent enough and readable enough account of Stormy Daniels's life. I certainly didn't need a 600-page tome, just a quick read to get an idea of how she got where she was and what happened with Trump. Whether you respect what she does for a living or not, her account of what happened with Trump and Michael Cohen and others working with Trump (including one who claimed to be *her* lawyer but was really colluding with Cohen) is credible.

As I said in one of my comments while reading, I do

I am one of those people who doesn't pay a huge amount of attention to American politics, but I had obviously heard the story of the porn star saying she slept with Donald Trump. When this book showed up in the library, I couldn't resist!
Stormy comes across as a very genuine and honest woman. She is very up front about her story, including how it affected her marriage and her life in general. She reminds us of some important issues about society's treatment and perception of porn stars and strip
I am not a fan of Trump, feel like I need to state that first.

When the story started to break about him and Stormy, I had no doubts about believing it to be true. Trump doesn’t care about women at all, his history shows it. I didn’t follow the story, but knew Stormy was getting beaten on in the press and the court of public opinion. Honestly I didn’t care one way or another, other that it was one more reason why Trump has no business being President with behavior like this.
