Most enjoyable bit was his discussion of his childhood visits to his grandparents in Czechoslovakia. Interesting and he should write more on this aspect of his life.

Still can't get his daddy's approval. Sad.

Behold, a book "written" by the son of the worst president in the history of our country. It's no mystery why he casts such a profound spell over the poorly-educated, the barely employed, the financially desperate, and congenitally gullible.

This is the worst book of the 21st century. After reading the first few chapters, I felt like I had just swallowed rat poison.

First of all, I was put off by the critique offered by Publishers Weekly. It was so biased it was of no good. SFPL should know better than to post poor writing like that, and by using it, as a leading book critique, it serves to be nothing more than a tacit endorsement. Let the reader decide for himself and spare us your self-inflated opinions. Other than that, the book did not offer any significant insights to an educated reader. The reaction from the bad reviews was mostly based on the title itself, and I suspect most of those "readers" never actually read it.

I agree with godsamazinggrace1 -- this comment box is not twitter nor is it a place for political battles. If you didn't like the book -- that's your right -- but please don't air your political biases here. I myself enjoyed the book. I thought Don Jr wrote about his life - his opinions - his ideas. There was humor, there was anger, and I believe there was truth. Again, I liked it. And I would recommend it to others. Just know that Don Jr. is a conservative - a Republican - and he defends his father - President Trump. Thank you Don Jr for a good read.

I got the sense that Don Jr was trying to brand himself an "everyman" for a future campaign. I have no way to know how many of the stories he tells about his own life are true, but it is clear he is not an honest person.
Two things that really stood out to me were that he called "white supremacists" a veiled reference by the media for Christians (wow!) and that he used the first paragraph of a satire piece from the Yale newspaper and falsely represented it as an attack on Republicans on college campuses (https://yaledailynews.com/blog/2018/04/13/yale-needs-to-stop-accepting-republican-students/).
When he deals with actual issues he typically quickly builds strawmen for himself to knock down while peppering his prose with juvenile asides.

Seriously, who would waste their time reading this crap when there is so much else out there to enjoy reading.

This book has a dagger beside it on the NYT best seller list which indicates big bulk purchases. The Republicans so desperate to get this book noticed started off by buying $100,000 worth.
So cheating to get on the list. Who's surprised?
