"Everyone has a book in them and that, in most cases, is where it should stay." - Christopher Hitchens

That pretty much sums it up, though I do believe that in order to write a book, one must first demonstrate that one is capable of reading a book.

Photographic proof that Jr. sucks.

Ah, yes – more attempts by the right to mindwash the gullible with petty bias and weak, inaccurate “arguments.” Chief just called and said this ain’t it.

Laughing at all the negative reviews from people that haven't even read the book. Hint: it's not out yet. Ironic, given the title of the book. Lol.

Tit-bits 1886

Donald Trump Jr writes that -- when he saw rows of graves at Arlington Cemetery -- he thought of...himself, and the business deals he had sacrificed. "About all the sacrifices we’d have to make to help my father succeed."

Pretty good, would definitely recommend it. Clearly shows how much the American left has become heavily radicalized, Intolerant, hateful, out of touch with reality and America itself. The Democrats are not those who were during the era of JFK.

LOL so many weak triggered sissies. I imagine it must be a really sad life to be triggered and offended by anything you disagree with.

Personally, my expectations of this book are extremely low. I hold no hope that Trump Jr. will be civil towards his political rivals and am fully prepared to read a book that is completely un-proofread and filled with absolute gibberish. The biggest shock, though, is the implication that this man knows how to read in the first place- because honestly, he probably doesn't need to do that much in his job since it's mostly based on charisma and nepotism- and that he has never read a book on politic ...more

As a liberal-minded person who likes to hear all sides of everything, I'd like to try to read this book. Honestly attempt to read it to see what D. Trump Jr. has to say. However, I couldn't get past the first page. The writing in this book comes off as an unprofessional rant piece, or something similar to a large, essay-like response on a social media or news post full of snark and vitriol.

He's entitled to his opinion as is always noted, and he certainly is entitled to write whatever

The irony of the title is that Jr. was triggered into writing this lol. Wah. Liberals are so weak and say mean things about me and dad and we can't take insults for **** cuz we have skin so thin we might very well have no skin at all. Therefore, I'm going to write a super hypocritical book that is basically a load of BS in academia terms but whatever, the sheep who like my dad will spend their hard-earned money on it. Money for me is good. Gotta make lemonade outta lemons.

Yikes! It’s like if you mashed up all his tweets and everything he’s already said in public and put it in a book. Absolute nonsense. Ive been a Republican all my life. I’ve seen patriotism by good politicians and public servers who fought hard for this country. This family is garbage. They’ve played victims when the American ppl are the victims of the Trump family. They have NEVER truly suffered. The self righteousness and self dealing are apparent. This is not even about being “triggered”. Or l ...more

It’s funny to see reviews by people who are so blinded by hatred they can’t even read a book. My guess is most of these people don’t even know how to read!

Anyway, this book is full of heart, truth and humor. Don is a great writer, articulate and speaks the truth so many liberal idiots are unwilling to face. Just this year alone I’ve read over 550 books and this one is up there with my favorites. It’s a hard pill for liberals to swallow, but their hatred and stupid policies such as support of il

The Best May Be Yet To Come!

DJT, JR. Isn't even President get and he's already triggering leftist morons like the "reviewer" who wrote "Ugh!". That's exactly how I feel about every shambling dreck roaming around purporting to be American when really they're just triggered fools.
DJT,Jr. Is a witty, eloquent defender of his dad and we deplorables. May the Durham report finally see justice rendered to the EVIL people engaged in the longest whinefest attempted seditious coup against a man

I'm really torn on this one. If you keep up with politics, then this book is mostly just a retread of the right's most common positions and examples in the current "politosphere". If you don't keep up with politics, a book like this isn't going to provide the nuanced arguments needed to be persuasive; it very quickly turns into conservative word-porn...entertaining but not very useful as a teaching aide.

The main thing I was hoping for with this book was unique incite into President D

An excellent look into the mind of an entitled white supremacist riding on the coat tails of his supreme leader father. History will study his father and our constitution will change as a result of it, sometime after his 5th term, if it goes that far.

And they will study the little people that were part of his gang, like Junior. Think of this book as like a really dumbed down version of Mein Kampf. I couldn't make it all the way through this book which I found on the sidewalk, it was the constan

I can’t wait to read this non-fiction book, authored by the emotionally abused son of a malignant narcissist. However, here’s a few things I’d rather do first:
1- Get my undercarriage waxed by a female, East German wrestler.
2- Binge watch every season of The Cosby Show.
3- Complete ten hours of physical and psychological torture at the McKamey Mansion
4- Befriend Harvey Weinstein. However, if he asks to be friends with benefits, I would read the book.

I wish I could give it more than 5 stars

Written just as he speaks, Don Jr.'s book is a page-turner. His stories and pictures bring his family and their influence on him right into your lap. His honesty changes your mind about who the Trumps are. We are lucky to have this dynamic family in govt., and this younger Trump writing to talk to us all about it. Write more, Don Jr.!!! Write more!!!

I don't think many that has left a review on this book/CD has either listened to it or read it. It seems to me that most are just biting their own tails in a hope to push down the readership of this book. In truth, it is well done and gives absolute truth in how the industry works - media, etc., that is. How do I know? I work on the inside of it all. Say as you will, but those that type just for trolling purposes, are obviously simply, as it is said, Triggered. :-)

Both Political Spectrums Would Greatly Benefit by Paying Attention

“...until you’ve walked a mile in his shoes.”

Junior not only exposes the insanity of the current politically charged climate, but gives you an enlightening insider’s view of the 2016 campaign. Donald Jr.’s upbringing was not only intriguing but speaks volumes about real values of the entire Trump family.

Trump 2024 and beyond?

Good book, that gives a very good account on hate in the world today that surrounds politics. Definitely, a book both sides should read. I don't read that many political books, however, I keep myself informed on politics. This book is a good read overall. I won't say much more and don't respond to negative comments.

Literally the worst thing I have ever read. He compares dead war veterans to the struggles of his dad’s presidency. Extremely insulting. I read the whole thing with an objective view but it’s just white privileged male crying about how hard life is and their struggles. Princess Diana - someone who actually saw real struggle is rolling in her grave.

Wow I just finished this book and it is a real eye opener! As a former Democrat - this boo exposes the hypocrisy and corruption rampant among the left. This book is funny and witty and takes a hard look at the Democratic policies of socialism ruining our country. The Trump’s love for our country is palpable. Proud to be a 2020 trump supporter. 👍🏼
Great read! Well done 😀

How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us - every day the red fog comes over my eyes as I fuel my passionate hatred of the Right by praying for the introduction to America of a non-regressive system of taxation and a universal single payer health care system free at the point of provision.

"From his childhood summers in Communist Czechoslovakia that began his political thought process",
After reading this sentence in the synopsis of the book it makes a good deal of sense as to why Trump embraces dictators and despots but shuns leaders from the free world.
