'Mary draws a portrait of a surreal, scarred clan ... But the fact that Donald morphed from huckster to celebrity to president makes her account seminal and indispensable. Mary's clarity, training, discipline and sharp eye help make her a reliable narrator, and she's a fluid, witty writer to boot. Everything in her book that I'm familiar with is spot on. There is plenty in the book, however, that I wasn't aware of, and I suspect that's the reason the president and his siblings have gone to court to try to halt its publication.' -- Timothy L.
