The 480 Tweets assembled in this book were selected by the Editor and are solely those of Donald J. Trump, currently the President of the United States. They are presented here word-for-word as he wrote them. Misspellings and punctuation errors are Mr. Trumps. Tweets are presented in specific categories as shown in the Table of Contents. Tweets longer than 280 characters are those continued in a second or third Tweet. Mr. Trump targeted many of the same individuals often retweeting an existing Tweet by changing a pejorative word (s) to reinforce his ire with that person along with other key words used over and over to make his point. Bold and underlined words within the Tweets are by the Editor to demonstrate this pattern.
The Tweets are presented with no political intent other than to demonstrate how The President prefers to communicate, how he responds to those who disagree with him and his responses to his perceived political enemies. Some will find these Tweets amusing. Others may be dismayed that they were written by the President of the United States.
The motion picture industry is an enigma for many people. While, in the open, everything seems "clean," legitimate and in good order, the seedier, lesser known side of Hollywood has always been somewhat of a legend that everyone seemed to know about, but no one could truly describe in any detailed manner.Theodore Dresier, famous American author and journalist, wanted to get in behind the scenes of Los Angeles' then still new, yet highly successful movie making industry, to find out about all the less commonly advertised goings-on that one may find here.Sure enough, he was not disappointed with what he discovered, and Hollywood, Its Morals and Mannerisms has quickly become one of the most famous account about what lies beneath the surface of LA's awe-inspiring movie studios, as well as a warning for all young artists and actors who might want to venture forth with their talents, to become cinema's next great stars.Dresier's main concern had to do with the recruitment of new talent. Young actors and actresses were often forced into unflattering circumstances either by unscrupulous hiring agents, or by their own desperation and drive to become famous.Whether it was about employers seeking to exploit new talent for high profits at a low cost, or young women attempting to be seen in public with celebrities in the hopes of catching the eye of a famous Hollywood producer, Dresier's extensive work, divided in four distinct parts, is just about everything you would (or wouldn't) want to know about Hollywood

This hysterical follow-up to The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis details the lifelong pursuits of the pint-sized Don Juan Each chapter—straight from the diaries of Dobie Gillis—is a true experience from our hero’s life between the ages of thirteen to thirty. All the experiences are about girls, because that’s what Dobie’s life is about: girls. In “Girls: Their Cause and Cure,” Dobie is a sixth-grader with the serious issue of being shorter than every girl in his class. A petite cellist with leaky tear ducts is his best bet until a beautiful rock-and-roll chick arrives at school. Dobie falls hard for the new girl, not realizing that she’s due for a growth spurt. Two years later, Dobie has more important concerns. In “Puberty Is Here to Stay,” his girlfriend, Tuckie Webb, goes away to summer camp and comes back more stunning than ever. Too bad she has hulking seventeen-year-old Murder McIntyre attached to her arm. Fifteen years later, Dobie weds his college sweetheart, Chloe. Marriage, it turns out, is the cure for Dobie’s obsession with girls, but money worries now plague our hero’s mind. When baby Pete arrives and Chloe spends all their cash on vitamins, nursery school, fencing lessons, and fancy dogs, Dobie fears he’ll never have the nest egg he desires. Then he realizes that he already has the two things a man really needs: a beautiful, loving wife and a happy child.

The Idiot is anything but, yet his fellow boarders at Mrs. Smithers-Pedagog’s home for single gentlemen see him as such. His brand of creative thought is dismissed as foolishness yet it continues to get under their skin, because when you’re beneath contempt you can say what you please. – This is the first of John Kendrick Bang’s “Idiot” books and was published by Harper and Brothers in 1895.
