Instant New York Times bestseller
"Standing up to bullies is my kind of thing."
How did Stormy Daniels become the woman willing to take on a president?
In this book, Stormy Daniels tells her whole story for the first time: what it's like to be a leading actress and director in the adult film business, the full truth about her journey from a rough childhood in Louisiana onto the national stage, and everything about her interaction with Donald Trump that led to the nondisclosure agreement and the behind-the-scenes attempts to intimidate her.
Stormy is funny, sharp, warm, and impassioned by turns. Her story is a thoroughly American one, of a girl who loved reading and horses and who understood from a very young age what she wanted?and who also knew she'd have to get every step of the way there on her own.
People can't stop talking about Stormy Daniels. And they won't be able to stop talking about her fresh, surprising, completely candid, nothing-held-back book.
Adult film actress Stormy Daniels offers details about her brief 2006 affair with Donald Trump, but that's not the focus of this conversational, wide-ranging, and forthright account of her life. A bright kid from Louisiana who wanted to be a writer and loved horses, Daniels grew up in a dysfunctional rat- and cockroach-infested house, was sexually abused at age nine by a friend's neighbor, excelled in school, had relationships with various boys (the details of which she candidly describes), and enjoyed horseback riding. She started stripping at 17 "and still graduated with honors as editor of the high school paper" eventually making her way to Los Angeles, where she became an award-winning adult film actress, writer, and director, a line of work that would eventually put her in the path of then "goofy reality TV star" Donald Trump and, more important to this narrative, her now-ex-husbands, one of whom is the father of her daughter. Readers looking for a takedown of Donald Trump or a sordid take on life in the adult film industry should look elsewhere, but those who consider her an avatar of the resistance will enjoy this personable, often profanely funny, and forthcoming memoir.

And religious people vote for a schmuck like this. My read went from interested to sympathetic.
Stormy is an amazingly talented writer. I was entertained by her humor as well as her life story. Didn’t want the book to end. I would recommend this book to anyone, regardless of political view.

I read it and could hear her voice though I have never heard her speak. It was so fascinating and at times sad. I want to commend her American fighting spirit for being brave enough to share when no one may believe and others would want to bring her harm. This book is an excellent autobiography. Ms. Daniels thank you for the share. You are a truly dedicated person and I am glad to have read your book. By far worth more than every penny spent . Joel Miller
