21. "Mary Trump is trying to sell her book... She simply has her opinion."

It's sad to see Mary Trump's contribution marginalized and superficialized in this way. Of the twenty-odd books I've read about Trump and this administration, since its release it is the first one I recommend to people specifically interested in the "WHY" of Trump.

Yes, it's her opinion, but given her background in psychology and deeply personal proximity to this subject, it is worth a lot more than just anyone's opinion. It is also poignant and well written, and shorter, more affecting, less technical and less speculative than something like The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump or Dangerous Charisma or Steven Hassan's (excellent) The Cult of Trump.
