"...an I was betrayed!' book to beat all."
"Winston Wolkoff's book is unique in the landscape of
books about the Trumps, as the first insider's look at the first
lady's private world."
--The Washington Post "The third of the big unauthorized Melania explainers, after Free, Melania by Kate Bennet in 2019 and The Art of Her Deal by Mary Jordan, which was published earlier this year, Melania & Me may also be the most revealing."
--The New York Times "Wolkoff's book is remarkable both for its intimacy and for the sheer volume of receipts it contains. It's also the first real look at what's under Melania Trump's hood--which, in Wolkoff's telling, is surprisingly callous and ugly."
--Vanity Fair's The Hive "epic scream of a tell-all"
--New York Times Book Review "...scathing tell-all."
--People.com "The first lady's former aide shares juicy tales of backbiting, inauguration chaos, and why Melania wouldn't use Michelle Obama's bathroom."
