5. I read the books because they validate reality as I understand it, at a time

when people are screaming that things that are true are fake.

Also, some of us really care about the "Why"? For us, it's not enough just to know Trump is crazy and corrupt. We need to know everything we can possibly know to help us have a sense of control over a reality that is difficult to comprehend.

And the different books cover all different aspects.

Trump and His Generals covered Trump's relationship with the Pentagon
Fear and Stable Genius and Fire and Fury covered some things.
The Apprentice covered very specific aspects of the RussiaGate.
House of Trump, House of Putin goes way back and traces Trump's involvement with Russian gangsters.
Then there are the memoirs, and they are what they are.
Dangerous Case of Donald Trump and Dangerous Charisma have psychiatrists examining Trump's mind.

Sometimes, I think people don't like the books because they don't read the books. Maybe they don't like the idea of there being so many books about one person they can't stand.

I get that. There are hundreds of books on Stalin. I'm not interested in Stalin, so I'm not interested in books about him.
