The preface and epilogue contain the most directly critical comments regarding Donald Trump. The book tells the story of Donald's family life and how each of the five siblings lives were shaped by their sex, birth order, and temperament upon finding themselves raised by a mother and father who were only interested in how their children would reflect on them or be useful to them in other ways. Both parents appeared to be incapable of feeling or expressing love, kindness or empathy in any way, so it is less surprising the Donald himself has never felt these things. The only family member who appeared to have escaped the family trademarked self-centeredness and lack of joie de vie was the oldest son, Freddy, named after his father, Fred, thus his heir apparent, and the author's father. His sad rise and fall is understandably the focus of the story, and the family's utter lack of any normal filial or sibling concern for Freddy is truly heartbreaking. This book helps answer the question that many people wonder, how Donald Trump can behave the way that he does? ( )

Ich fand das Buch sehr interessant, da es wirklich erhellende Einsichten liefert, wie eine dysfunktionale Familie funktioniert. Tatsächlich ist es erschreckend und hat mich eher traurig gemacht. Donald Trump wird als skrupelloser Narziss dargestellt, aber es wird auch deutlich, dass er in gewisser Weise Umstände vorfand, die diese Entwicklung sehr begünstig haben. ( )

"Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man", by Mary L. Trump, PH.D. will be loved by the Trump haters, and loathed by the Trump supporters. With that being said, I tried approaching this book with an open-mind. I found it quite interesting, as the novel provided a lot of insight of the Trump family (not only Donald), based on the first-hand experiences and interviews conducted by Mary L. Trump, PH.D.
Based on my personal feelings of our former president, I know feel that I have a better understanding of his words and actions before, during and after his presidency.
No matter your feelings towards our former president, I feel that the book is worth reading. It's well written and easy to follow. ( )

BOOK REVIEW: Mary L. Trump (@MaryLTrump) - TOO MUCH AND NEVER ENOUGH

Ms. Trump’s book is laid out logically, it is well organized and well written. On the whole it’s a dull read. It does give insights into Donald J. Trump’s early family life but mostly confirms what most have already figured out. DJT is an ignorant, damaged, deeply biased, sadistic, and fearful man. DJT is determined to never be exposed for a lifetime of fraud and failure. He will do anything, including killing millions, to avoid exposure or accountability.

Mary Trump is very much like the rest of her family—damaged. The book is replete with poor little trust fund baby entitlement and blame from Ms. Trump to other family members that just becomes a tedious chore for the reader.

Mary definitely blames everyone around her; especially her grandfather Fred and DJT for her father’s (DJT’s brother) early death from alcoholism. Her father’s death is a tragedy and emotional scar that will never heal. Ms. Trump beats this drum of trauma throughout the majority of the book which is why reading it is tiresome. Certain aspects will leave you with the impression of a spoiled brat. At least she’s working towards self-improvement but her unabashed motivation is revenge. Revenge for her father’s sad death and for how the family cheated her out of her inheritance.

Understanding Mary’s family dynamics draws the reader to the inescapable conclusion that “We the People” are now DJT’s long suffering, damaged, and sick family. As the patriarch of the family he delights in sadistic Machiavellian machinations. Like the Trump family, the American family has become a pit of treacherous vipers. Learning to navigate the Trump family snake pit is a matter of survival for them. It is how he was raised, what he knows, what he teaches and what he’s recreated in our society. The more treacherous the person (and more money) the more they are valued in the family hierarchy.

I recommend saving time: just read the final chapter and epilogue as that will give you the entire gist of her primary message. Ms. Trump does effectively meet her objective to “bring Donald down” and does so—brilliantly. If your goal is to confirm or understand why DJT is the way he is then you should invest the time and money to read it. Having bought the book and looking back while considering its value; I’d wished a friend had given me just the last chapter and epilogue so I could have saved the money 💰 and time ⏰. You will learn some new things but mostly it will cement what you already know or suspect about why Donald J. Trump is the way he is. —By: @KatoJustus4 ( )

Gave it a go; but no new material interesting to me. Browsed and tossed.

The sins of the father loom large too in Too Much and Never Enough by Mary Trump (Simon & Schuster), a fascinating memoir from the US president's niece that sheds a very prescient light on his refusal to quit the White House. The author's own father, Donald’s brother Freddy, was the eldest son of the family; in her telling, Donald and Freddy's father, Fred Trump Sr, was a sociopath who pitted his children cruelly against each other. Eventually Freddy Jr is deemed the loser, not fit to inherit the family business, and brutally rejected. Donald steps up, but never forgets the lesson that failure equals ostracism. From then on everything he touches must always be terrific, amazing, the best it could be.

But the most interesting assessments she offers are reserved for those inside the “institutions,” the people who might have saved us and certainly have not, from the nuclear family, to the Trump businesses, to New York’s bankers and powerful elites, to Bill Barr, Mike Pompeo, and Jared Kushner. They all knew and know that the emperor has no clothes, even as they devote their last shreds of dignity to effusive praise of his ermine trim and jaunty crown....
As she concludes, his sociopathy “reminds me that Donald isn’t really the problem at all.” That makes hers something other than the 15th book about the fathoms-deep pathologies of Donald Trump: It is the first real reckoning with all those who “caused the darkness.”

“Too Much and Never Enough” is a deftly written account of cross-generational trauma, but it is also suffused by an almost desperate sadness — sadness in the stories it tells and sadness in the telling, too. Mary Trump brings to this account the insider perspective of a family member, the observational and analytical abilities of a clinical psychologist and the writing talent of a former graduate student in comparative literature. But she also brings the grudges of estrangement.

Writing with the sharp eye of a perpetual outsider in her own family, Trump presents a melancholic portrait of their complicity in her uncle's worst behaviors. Readers who despair for President Trump's ability to lead the country out of its current crises will have their worst suspicions confirmed.

“It felt,” she writes, “as though 62,979,636 voters had chosen to turn this country into a macro version of my malignantly dysfunctional family.” ... And it goes on, coming to a head in the unbelievable story of Fred Trump’s will. Does Mary Trump, Ph.D., have an ax to grind? Sure. So do we all. Dripping with snideness, vibrating with rage, and gleaming with clarity—a deeply satisfying read.

[Epilogue] On November 9, 2016, my despair was triggered in part by the certainty that Donald's cruelty and incompetence would get people killed.

The lies may become true as soon as he utters them, but they're still lies.  It's just another way for him to see what he can get away with. And so far, he's gotten away with everything.
“I never challenged my father,” Maryanne said. “Ever.” It was easier to go along for the ride. Donald’s chiefs of staff are prime examples of this phenomenon. John Kelly, at least for a while, and Mick Mulvaney, without any reservations at all, would behave the same way—until they were ousted for not being sufficiently “loyal.” That’s how it always works with the sycophants. First they remain silent no matter what outrages are committed; then they make themselves complicit by not acting. Ultimately, they find they are expendable when Donald needs a scapegoat.
Once Donald moved into Atlantic City, there was no longer any denying that he wasn’t just ill-suited to the day-to-day grind of running a few dozen middle-class rental properties in the outer boroughs, he was ill-suited to running any kind of business at all—even one that ostensibly played to his strengths of self-promotion and self-aggrandizement and his taste for glitz.
Knowing ahead of time that you’re going to be bailed out if you fail renders the narrative leading up to that moment meaningless. Claim that a failure is a tremendous victory, and the shameless grandiosity will retroactively make it so. That guaranteed that Donald would never change, even if he were capable of changing, because he simply didn’t need to. It also guaranteed a cascade of increasingly consequential failures that would ultimately render all of us collateral damage.
Donald was to my grandfather what the border wall has been for Donald: a vanity project funded at the expense of more worthy pursuits.
