>When South African conservationist Lawrence Anthony was asked to accept a herd of "rogue" wild elephants on his Thula Thula game reserve in Zululand, his common sense told him to refuse. But he was the herd's last chance of survival: they would be killed if he wouldn't take them. In order to save their lives, Anthony took them in. In the years that followed he became a part of their family. And as he battled to create a bond with the elephants, he came to realize that they had a great deal to teach him about life, loyalty, and freedom.

In Raising Trump, Ivana Trump reflects on her extraordinary life and the raising of her three children - Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka - and recounts the lessons she taught her children as they were growing up. As her former husband takes his place as the 45th president of the United States, his children have also been thrust into the media spotlight - but it is Ivana who raised them and proudly instilled in them what she believes to be the most important life lessons: loyalty, honesty, integrity, and drive.

Ivana Trump recounts an amazing story how she mostly by herself reared Don Jr ,Ivanka, and Eric.
Her children were given a wide expouser. The tools they needed to be independent survive the downside of being TRUMP. To use the benefit of being TRUMP.

The author Shirer has done his homework. Well written and even though it is an unbelievable story in the telling it's all too believable. I take from it no leader can be taken for granted. We all need to be vigilant. God bless America!
