The Author of Prison of the Soul read my book and gave it five stars.
Dee-lish-shus fix to fill your need for schadenfreude. You lived this history of press and pundits mocking you, and Surber feeds you a feast of all the prime cuts. For awhile, I didn't even know why Mr. Trump began to grow on me, but Surber enlightened me. I can't wait for the second course, the campaign against Hillary and the aftermath of the election, even more hysterical an atmosphere among the Democrats than among the GOP in the primaries. Clearly the Trump presidency will be fodder for many Trump books but I doubt many will be able to approach the quality of Surber's fast-paced narrative laced with irony and analysis.
One of the powerful insights I get from this book is how Mr. Trump yanked back the curtain to reveal charlatans I once admired. George Will, a pontificating blowhard. National Review a national disgrace. Jonah Goldberg unhinged. Mitt Romney a despicable, cowardly, treacherous suit with no honor (If he'd campaigned as hard against Barack Obama as against Mr. Trump, Mitt might have been elected in 2012.Thank you so much.
If Romney had been elected in 2012, we would be seeing the return of the Clinton Clan!
And please, keep those reviews coming. The sequel is a few weeks away from the book editor.
