Great thoughts! A little surprised by the narrators opinions.

Great book and wonderful thought provoking statements to Handle critical conversations. I wonder if the tail end of the narrator’s opinion of President Trump is exactly what the original authors would want associated with their book? When Reading a book like this I’m looking for positive ways to grow as a person not someone’s political opinion.
