If Hiliary Clinton had read this book, she would never have made the comment "the deplorables" and effectively lost the election. The book is a real eye-opener to the hidden America. Twenty-five years ago I travelled through the poorest county in Appalachia. It didn't look too bad until my colleague explained the situation. All the trailers were hidden from site behind barns. Twenty-five percent of the population were distitute. The children came to school unwashed, unread and unfed. This was a whole hidden segment of America. Did they vote for Donald Trump? No, they didn't have to, because the next layer of the social order marginally above them did.
