The Trump Survival Guide by Gene Stone

Don’t despair.
Don’t retreat.
Fight back.

The stunning election of Donald J. Trump rocked an already divided America and left scores of citizens, including the nearly sixty-five million voters who supported Hillary Clinton, feeling bereft and powerless. Now, Gene Stone, author of The Bush Survival Bible, offers invaluable guidance and concrete solutions they can use to make a difference in this serious call-to-arms—showing them how to move from anger and despair to activism as the Trump inauguration approaches.

Before we can successfully engage, we need to be clear about the battles ahead. Stone outlines political and social concepts—including such issues as Civil Rights, Women’s Rights, the Environment, Obamacare, International relations, and LGBTQ Rights—providing a brief history of each, a refresher on Obama’s policies, and an analysis of what Trump’s administration might do. Stone then provides an invaluable guide for fighting back—referring to organizations, people, sites, and countless other resources that support positive and possible goals.

While marches and social media are important forms of protest, concrete actions achieve real change. Positive and reinforcing, The Trump Survival Guide presents the essential information we need to effectively make our voices heard and our power felt.


“A comprehensive resource guide for individuals worried that certain rights may be in jeopardy, offering the encouragement to actively fight back with as much knowledge and authority as possible.”

“Anyone dreading Inauguration Day will appreciate The Trump Survival Guide. Author Gene Stone lays out the key fights ahead – over women’s rights, LGBTQ+ rights, the environment, health care, and more – and offers actionable solutions to counteract your feelings of powerlessness. Tweeting your fear and frustration isn’t enough; this book will help you make a bigger impact.”

“This book has everything novice activists need to get started, all in one place. Its historical primers are written with admirable immediacy, reflecting the importance of quick action or perhaps the quick turnaround time of the book’s creation. The “What you can do” sections, which could easily have been repetitive, are instead varied and each worthy of careful perusal. Americans concerned about their country’s fate under a Donald Trump presidency will find that this book is the ideal resource for meaningful civic engagement.”
