Mary Trump's book "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man" is set to be published on July 28, according to publisher Simon & Schuster. The 55-year-old trained clinical psychologist is the daughter of Donald Trump's late brother Fred Trump Jr and has described the time spent at her grandparents' estate with Trump and his siblings as "a nightmare of traumas, destructive relationships, and a tragic combination of neglect and abuse".

The memoir's description on Amazon says the book is "revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him" and that it "shines a bright light on the dark history of their family in order to explain how her uncle became the man who now threatens the world’s health, economic security, and social fabric".
