As I was a fan of Markos Moulitsas’ past two books–Rules for Radicals in the Digital Age and American Taliban–I made sure to check this book out. The book is split into 45 chapters, an homage to Donald Trump being the forty-fifth president of the United States.  For all intents and purposes, this book is a primer for Trump-angered folks first dipping their feet into political activism.

The book succeeds in its goals: it is a treasure trove of information, quick facts, and hints for left-of-center newcomers to United States politics. If you don’t fall into that category, the book isn’t for you. While more experienced political junkies might find a few gems of knowledge, this book is certainly aimed at novices.

Honestly, I finished reading this book about a month and a half ago, but I couldn’t really think of what to write in a review. Having been very interested in politics for over a decade, I can’t say that I learned a whole lot. On the other hand, I will be recommending this to my friends and family who are looking for a way to constructively push back against Trump and the Republican Party.
