"The best book, so far, on the political and cultural implications of Trump's presidency. Shields has the widest range of curiosity of any American writer I'm aware of, and he almost never wastes your time. He nails what's off-kilter and crazy about Donald Trump and the political psychosis he represents at least a hundred times, and in dozens of insightful ways. Shields is good enough, in this book, to earn the designation of being the writer most likely to be picked up and murdered should either right- or left-wing fundamentalists take power in the United States. This is a designation that hasn't been conferred on an American writer since Philip K. Dick. What I'm saying is that Shields is that good. He is one of a very small group of true 21st century writers worthy of the tag, and I salute him as a master."
Jeff Simon, Buffalo News
"You're unlikely to encounter another book so recklessly and unpredictably full of insight, even wisdom. Shields is the most exciting writer we have in America at the moment, the most startling and innovative."

"A sobering, nuanced, and--at times--brutally funny--psychological investigation into why Trump resonates with all, even the people who hate him."
Cathy Alter, Washington D.C.] Independent Review
"A mesmerizing study of power, how it isolates, how it infantalizes, how it amplifies our collective fears."
"A compelling book offering something to offend nearly anyone."
"Shields weaves together wry observations."
Shannon Laster, Open Letters Review
"Shields's short book delivers the goods."

"Nobody Hates Trump More Than Trump has something new to say."
