The writing is clear and coherent, demonstrating the author’s academic achievement while simultaneously accessible to non-specialist readers and listeners. She and her team evidently put a great deal of work into accomplishing this feat in so short a timeframe.

The author reads her work as clearly as she writes it. There was not one moment in the book where I had to back to, slow playback, and replay, not any moment where found myself distracted by the sound. Her voice and pronunciation have the clarity I expect from SLPs and language educators.

This is a tragic case study in the social development of a pathologically criminal mind. Through the example of the author, it is also a case study in the resilience to overcome a generationally traumatizing family and succeed despite being set up to fall.

The story might well be as close as Frankenstein gets to real life, though Shelley could not have imagined the death toll.

There is brilliance in the Trump family after all, and human decency too, and her name is Dr. Mary.

Rachael’s work in this book, as in the quest for justice she recounts in it, is uniformly excellent. Her strength, tenacity, and professionalism throughout are exemplary, even while it is a sorrowful testament to our society that all such were necessary. She should never have had cause to do any of this nor write about it, and her work and cause are hence to be all the more appreciated, commended, and promoted. The book is excruciating to read; to all but survivors, it is unimaginable to write, let alone to endure the antecedents to the writing. Her work before, within, and following this book are essential to all with human empathy and a righteous conscience. I recommend this book to all who it would not be to traumatizing to endure.

Sister, Warrior, walk onward in honour.
