The 32nd Amazon review of "Trump the Press"

Readers continue to review "Trump the Press" on Amazon, and as is custom, I re-post them here. J. Alewyn's review is simply amazing.


From J. Alewyn:
Don Surber Gets It Right
We all remember the story:
Trump's not going to run, he's just promoting himself.
Well, sure, he's running but he's not really serious.
Okay, he's sort of serious but he just wants to shape the debate. He'll bail when the going gets tough.
He's trying to lose by saying outrageous things that nobody believes.
He can't possibly get enough delegates.
Brokered convention.
Okay, he's got the delegates, but they're going to walk out.
Okay, they nominated him, but he can't win because he's not spending any money on ads.
He can't win because Hillary is spending tens of millions on ads.
Oh sure, Trump's pulled even with Hillary but he still can't win. Because... because... er...
Trump's ahead in several key swing states, but, well, you see...
This was the conventional wisdom about the Trump candidacy. And Don Surber, nearly alone among the conservative blogosphere, did not believe conventional wisdom. He saw what Trump inspired in his supporters, and realized Trump was on to something. In "Trump the Press", Surber has documented the foolishness of the mainstream media, as well as the mainstream conservative punditry. It's not only an interesting story, it's history in the making. It's tragic that so many who are supposed to know this stuff missed it entirely.
Don Surber's blog has been one I've followed off and on, but during this election cycle, he's become a must-read. Don is a professional journalist and his writing reflects that. This book moves along and keeps your interest, and even though we all know the story so far, it's so well written your interest will not flag. I read it in a few hours, and am in the middle of reading it again. There are a lot of details that you may have not known or forgotten, and Surber deftly chronicles the entire campaign. Don Surber understands what so many on the right fail to grasp, some even now: Donald Trump loves America, and more importantly, loves Americans.
Get this book. I'm sure the last chapter in the revised edition will be:
"Ladies and Gentlemen, President Donald J. Trump!"
That will be a terrific ending. Two months to go.

Thank you for the kind review, J. Alewyn.

I started "Trump the Press" on January 9, finished on May 9. Still haven't decided on whether to write a sequel. Maybe a few more reviews like this will sway me.

  2. That's one hell of a good review!

    It's almost as good as your book, Don! Which I too am in the process of reading again, and still finding nuggets of wisdom & insight which delight me.

    I guess it "takes one to know one"- and your background suited you ideally for taking on the corrupt Press!

    (Yah, I'm shamelessly pressing you for a sequel, this book just doesn't go far enough. Got to get Trump into the WH, that's a good place to end- or to start a new beginning!)

  3. I dearly hope that you are engaged in documenting and researching daily as the race wears on. With that done, it would be a shame to waste the effort. Write the next book, Don. Please.
