The Pendejo In Chief pretty much cannot shut up, and this book illustrates it well. From serious issues (seriousness being relative) to the utmost trivial and banal, he feels a need to tweet, and this book documents a good amount of it. It even includes deleted tweets caught before he took them down.
The book does have a few issues. One, reading his less than bright tweets in general is a painful experience; reading them in text does not improve the experience. Two, a good amount of tweets serve double and even triple duty; there is a lot of repetition. Three, the quality of the snarky commentary varies. Some of it is good, other is tedious, and you can probably skim it or outright skip it.
Overall, the book is OK. I am not sure it was worth breaking my reading moratorium to read this. This does not seem like a memorable book. Borrow it if you must.
2 out of 5 stars
