The Trump Survival Guide: Everything You Need to Know About Living Through What You Hoped Would Never Happen

Gene Stone. Dey St., $9.99 trade paper (208p) ISBN 978-0-06-268648-0
In this up-to-the-minute work, Stone (How Not To Die) assembles a comprehensive guide for Americans who want to push back against the Trump agenda. With his collaborators (who include Carl Pritzkat, v-p of business development for Publishers Weekly’s parent company, PWxyz), Stone addresses 12 key issues, including civil rights, the economy, entitlement programs, health insurance, and immigration. Each is divided into several sections: a Wikipedia-style quick historical overview; what happened under the Obama administration; worst-case scenarios asking “What might Donald Trump do?”; and “What you can do,” with information on how to get involved, organizations to join and support, further reading, and the like. This book has everything novice activists need to get started, all in one place. Its historical primers are written with admirable immediacy, reflecting the importance of quick action or perhaps the quick turnaround time of the book’s creation. The “What you can do” sections, which could easily have been repetitive, are instead varied and each worthy of careful perusal. Americans concerned about their country’s fate under a Donald Trump presidency will find that this book is the ideal resource for meaningful civic engagement. (Jan.)
