    The amount of coverage in published written works about Trump over time is due to his fame prior to his 2016 presidential campaign. Biographer Michael D'Antonio observed in Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success (2015) that Trump "has been a topic of conversation in America for almost 40 years. No one in the world of business – not Bill Gates, Steve Jobs or Warren Buffett – has been as famous as Trump for as long." Almost one year after his inauguration as president, The Guardian noted that more than 4,500 English-language books about Trump had been published since he took office, compared to just over 800 works about predecessor Barack Obama during his first year in office. Due to the sheer volume of books about Trump, the titles listed below are limited to non-fiction books about Trump or his presidency, published by notable authors and scholars. Tertiary sources (including textbooks and juvenile literature), satire, and self-published books are excluded.

    If you scan the list, you'll notice that the vast majority are NOT complimentary.

    I've had "A Very Stable Genius" on hold at the local library since early March. Now that the local library has re-opened, I was able to pick up my reserved copy a couple of days ago.

    Being "re-opened" does not mean that I can actually go inside the library. I had to send a text to the number posted on the door, verify that I was outside, send them my name and card number, and wait for them to bring my book outside. "Browsing the shelves" is definitely not possible for now.

    The book listed above was written by Philip Rucker and Carol Leonning, both of whom have won Pulitzer Prizes for writing about Trump. You don't have to get very far into the book to realize that Trump is completely bonkers.

    I read 5 books about Trump in 2019, 4 in 2018, and 2 in 2017. "A Very Stable Genius" is the second book I've read about Trump this year.

    The common theme for all of them is precisely that "completely bonkers" description.

    You don't have to read books about Trump; any "schrink" will tell you he's not the type you want as "leader". If you observe his way of doing things, then looking at his upbringing in an KKK family who "milked" tenants and was associated with the NY mafia; then you know enough. The "spoiled bullying brat" never worked a day in his life, neither received an proper education and only needed to hold up his hand for Daddy and got millions to waste on stupid things. His relationship with Epstein and the underage girls says enough. All his marriages were an disaster.

    So you don't need many books to learn what the guy is all about. But yeah the stupid people elect such "me alone" absolute asshole.

    This book certainly qualifies as a "quick read", since I finished reading it this afternoon.

    The time frame covers is between the Republican convention in Cleveland up to just before Trump gets impeached.

    Although the book covers Trump's many mistakes, what impressed me the most is that nobody in their right mind would ever work for this guy, since loyalty is strictly a one way street with him.

    Arizona, the point is that this country "allows" all of this craziness. Where are the laws to prevent all of this? As well that Kentucky runs the world with King McConnell. Sorry this country will never learn. Oh, yeah I forgot it is only a couple of hundred years old and they vote via an total corrupt "electoral college" system and totally outdated laws and are missing an instruction book on how to run an "impeachment", so no wonder. Are you really that surprised?

    In the meantime the stock market "tanks" (Nasdaq for now, at least the major stocks) due to the "fact" some people start to realize "reality" related to the "real" economy is starting to sink in. Sorry, but it will get worse before getting better, because our "leader" is loosing it in his head and the corruption on all fronts is taking over. Dem's put your "life jackets" on and load your "guns" because the ship is been taken over by pirates and is sinking.

    Disavow the craziness. Limit personal wealth to 10 million dollars.. Regulate with a tax code that spends and rewards jobs producers.

    The "genius" already got an new fight with "twitter" about that he with his words promotes violence.

    So he must be upset; especially this afternoon he likely will launch his anger during the "press" conference about China.

    I'm still thinking about what Pelosi said: He will "impeach" himself. ( Let's hope so)
