Are you curious how Donald Trump got elected? Do you wander how many mistakes he’s actually made? Is he incompetent or a monster? He’s both, and this book will prove it. President Donald Trump isn’t a man who’s doing the “best he can”. He’s someone who’s built his power on fear mongering, shady businesses dealings and hate. In this book, the tactics that Trump uses to manipulate his audience will be exposed. The words he wishes that he never said will be dissected, and his actions will only serve to prove his inadequacies as a president. Trump cannot accurately represent the United States when he does not speak for the people. You’ll even find out how Donald Trump is exploiting his presidency for personal gain under a thin veil of deception.

Strongman: The Rise of Five Dictators and the Fall of Democracy Audiobook

Strongman: The Rise of Five Dictators and the Fall of Democracy

Author: Kenneth C. Davis Narrator: Cindy Kay, Kenneth C. Davis, Terrence Kidd Release Date: October 2020

From the bestselling author of the Don't Know Much About books comes a dramatic account of the origins of democracy, the history of authoritarianism, and the reigns of five of history's deadliest dictators. What makes a country fall to a dictator? How do authoritarian leaders-strongmen-capable of killing millions acquire their power? How are they able to defeat the ideal of democracy? And what can we do to make sure it doesn't happen again? By profiling five of the most notoriously ruthless dictators in history-Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, and Saddam Hussein-Kenneth C. Davis seeks to answer these questions, examining the forces in these strongmen's personal lives and historical periods that shaped the leaders they'd become. Meticulously researched, Strongman provides insight into the lives of five leaders who callously transformed the world and serves as an invaluable resource in an era when democracy itself seems in peril. 'Strongman is a book that is both deeply researched and deeply felt, both an alarming warning and a galvanizing call to action, both daunting and necessary to read and discuss.' -Cynthia Levinson, author of Fault Lines in the Constitution
