Too Much and Never Enough
How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man
Table of Contents
About The Book
Mary Trump spent much of her childhood in her grandparents’ large, imposing house in the heart of Queens, New York, where Donald and his four siblings grew up. She describes a nightmare of traumas, destructive relationships, and a tragic combination of neglect and abuse. She explains how specific events and general family patterns created the damaged man who occupied the Oval Office, including the strange and harmful relationship between Fred Trump and his two oldest sons, Fred Jr. and Donald.
A firsthand witness to countless holiday meals and interactions, Mary brings an incisive wit and unexpected humor to sometimes grim, often confounding family events. She recounts in unsparing detail everything from her uncle Donald’s place in the family spotlight and Ivana’s penchant for regifting to her grandmother’s frequent injuries and illnesses and the appalling way Donald, Fred Trump’s favorite son, dismissed and derided him when he began to succumb to Alzheimer’s.
Numerous pundits, armchair psychologists, and journalists have sought to parse Donald J. Trump’s lethal flaws. Mary L. Trump has the education, insight, and intimate familiarity needed to reveal what makes Donald, and the rest of her clan, tick. She alone can recount this fascinating, unnerving saga, not just because of her insider’s perspective but also because she is the only Trump willing to tell the truth about one of the world’s most powerful and dysfunctional families.

Raves and Reviews
"Psychologist Mary Trump said her biggest regret is that she did not tell Americans to vote against her uncle, Donald Trump, when he ran for the presidency. She tells her own story in this audiobook, speaking quite eloquently. . . . She talks about the president's childhood, when he learned to be selfish, manipulative, and greedy at the hands of his father, Fred (Mary's grandfather). She speaks about family holiday meals—characterized by jealousy, bitterness, favoritism, and mean-spiritedness outweighing the little love in the room. This is a short audiobook, and much of it is about other family members, including Mary's father, Freddy, who was ostracized after growing up in Donald's shadow. It shows that despite the family's great wealth, lack of love makes the Trumps poorer than most of us."
