Audio Book Summary

In this revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him, Mary L. Trump, a trained clinical psychologist and Donald’s only niece, shines a bright light on the dark history of their family in order to explain how her uncle became the man who now threatens the world’s health, economic security and social fabric.
 
Mary Trump spent much of her childhood in her grandparents’ large, imposing house in New York, where Donald and his four siblings grew up. She describes a nightmare of traumas, destructive relationships and a tragic combination of neglect and abuse. She explains how specific events and general family patterns created the damaged man who currently occupies the Oval Office, including the strange and harmful relationship between Fred Trump and his two oldest sons, Fred Jr. and Donald.
 
A first-hand witness, Mary brings an incisive wit and unexpected humour to sometimes grim, often confounding family events. She recounts in unsparing detail everything from her uncle Donald’s place in the family spotlight and Ivana’s penchant for regifting to her grandmother’s frequent injuries and illnesses and the appalling way Donald, Fred Trump’s favourite son, dismissed and derided him when he began to succumb to Alzheimer’s.
 
Numerous pundits, armchair psychologists and journalists have sought to explain Donald Trump’s lethal flaws. Mary Trump has the education, insight and intimate familiarity needed to reveal what makes Donald, and the rest of her clan, tick. She alone can recount this fascinating, unnerving saga, not just because of her insider’s perspective but also because she is the only Trump willing to tell the truth about one of the world’s most powerful and dysfunctional families.

    The book actually made me feel a bit sorry for Donald Trump. His childhood was grim and unfortunately led to the deeply flawed and unstable man he is today. The author states that she has written it as she does not want her uncle elected again, but i don't think that this book will really change many minds. I think that he is a terrible person but this book at least gave some context as to why. The main part of the book is centered on Trump's father, Fred and his toxic legacy. Money is everything to this family. Trump's mum doesn't come out of it very well either. The author obviously has her own bias but i also think that she has done her best to be fair and give an honest account of the whole Trump family. She and her brother were cut out of the grandfathers will for no good reason and i suspect she is understandably settling a few scores by writing this book as well as genuinely wanting the world to know how unfit for office her uncle is. She is a clinical psychologist so has not really gone for the scandal aspect of the Trump dynasty but the book is peppered with juicy bits of information on Trump's follies. The author narrates the book and she has a nice voice and i really hope that writing this has helped her too
