As you may know, I set myself a 2017 goal to read 52 books in a year – averaging one per week. Full disclosure: I’m totally screwed. But still! Here’s my five minute book review.
If I had to describe Trump & Me in five words, it would be:
Depressing, hilarious, terrifying, worrying, insightful.
Trump & Me is a three-part short publication profiling our favourite tangerine tyrant. Written by Mark Singer of The New Yorker, it gives a brief albeit insightful glance into Donald Trump’s psyche. I will say that it presumes a lot of prior knowledge about Trump’s business deals and the property industry in general, so at some points I was a bit stuck (or was that just my hangover?) – however, it’s still a great read. It just made me think this would be hilarious, if this wasn’t the leader of the free world we were talking about here. So there you have it. A good read on a bad man. (See what I did there?)
Would I recommend it to a friend? If that friend was looking to keep up to date on current affairs.

That’s it folks!
What should be the next book on my list?
Lots of love,
