Description

Product Description

This program includes an introductory note written and read by Michael Avenatti.

She was already well-known in some circles before March 6, 2018, but that''s probably the first time you heard the name Stormy Daniels. That''s the day she filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump over a nondisclosure agreement negotiated before the election but never signed.

How did Stormy Daniels become the woman willing to take on a president? What is it like to be reviled by some, held up as a beacon of hope by others, and to be an object of fascination to all?

In this audiobook, Stormy Daniels tells her whole story for the first time: about how she came 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 the events 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 audiobook.

Boring stories don''t make for good memoirs. You might not agree with her unconventional lifestyle choices, but they sure do make for an interesting book.

Like many, I wasn''t entirely sure what to expect when I pre-ordered this memoir. A hit piece on trump? A slimy recollection of creepy Cheeto experiences?

Not so.

Stormy details the quirky and sometimes upsetting details of her childhood, on through her debut in the business, and follows up with the ups and downs of life on the edge including her life in the headlines. If you are looking for a hit piece on the president''s bedroom antics, you won''t find it here; Trump doesn''t even appear until almost 50% of the way in, and most of his presence relates to shady business dealings.

Surprise: her side of the story deserves to be told, too. I learned a lot from chapters 8 & 9 about the scandal surrounding the NDA that I didn''t know. Pieces of the puzzle that I hadn''t bothered putting together. I won''t hit you with any spoilers, but trust me when I say that you don''t even know the half of it unless you''d call yourself a subject matter expert on her and Trump''s rendezvous. "If it''s true, why would she settle for only $130k? That''s like ten bucks to me or you." Pffffffft, just read. It will all make sense.

....& you''ll never look at mushrooms the same...

Republican (yup, you read that right) Stormy''s career choices make her memoir all the more interesting, *not* undignified. Any time someone is willing to question the straight and narrow paths most of our parents want us to take, I''m reeled in. Full Disclosure is no exception, with or without the grandioseness of Trump''s involvement. My mother also worked in the business, but unlike Stormy, she never got around to putting her stories on paper or making herself vulnerable to the personal attacks to come from it. Stormy gets points for bravery in that regard, something you''ll realize she has plenty of if you decide to read her book.

I''m an English grad, grammar snob, and memoir connoisseur. I live for memoir releases. However, I must admit, I wasn''t sure about this one. I generally try not to judge other people but I wasn''t sure if: 1) I would connect with the story of a "porn star," and 2) if I really wanted to know the fine details of what I assumed would be a granular description of Trump''s anatomy and sexual behavior. I squeezed my eyes shut and clicked "buy." To my surprise, I found two glorious first chapters of a woman''s life from age two through around twenty-seven, packed with interesting, relatable, and in parts, tragically sad information about a life lived as well as a girl with uncanny odds stacked against her could. (Quick aside: I hate that the first two chapters are around 55 pages each. The reader has little sense of forward movement of the text and it detracts from the story. I wish the publisher would have broken those huge chapters into smaller pieces with descriptive titles.) Enter Donald Trump. He’s everything and nothing we would imagine. At times, an overconfident, self-obsessed, prick juxtaposed with a glaringly insecure old man. Following Stormy’s four in-person encounters with the man (and from what I can tell, six to eight months of phone calls), the story takes us behind the scenes to the absolute “tornado” (an appropriately used metaphor in the book) that became Stormy’s life post-Trump. By the last page, I came away with many impressions, the greatest of which involve respect for Stormy as a person, belief in the entirety of her story, and a bit of sadness about the things lost along the way. To be clear, had this memoir been published without the stigma of the Trump association in existence, I would esteem it among one of my favorites. At first, I thought it was a shame that such a smart, talented writer/director/entertainer and loving mother had to, to some extent, waste her first book on a “scandal.” Then, I realized that many of us have such antagonists in our own stories, save the limelight. Well done, Stormy. Respect.

Most everyone recognizes the name Stormy Daniels. We know the lurid details of her affair with Trump. We know she is a stripper and a porn star. Now, we meet the real Stormy Daniels, also known as Stephanie Clifford.

Stephanie prefers the name Stormy, and as Michael Avenatti says in the forward to this book, Stormy tells it all. Born to a beautiful young woman and a dad with a Cherokee heritage, Stormy had the right combination of looks and intelligence. Stormy’s mom wanted a boy, and her dad did not want any children at all. Stormy grew up knowing she needed to fight for what she wanted. Her dad was an engineer, and left her mom after his time away in Alaska. Life after this was difficult for Stormy.

She grew up in Baton Rouge, but they had moved around a lot. Her childhood was filled with poverty, neglect and abuse. When Stormy was nine she was sexually abused by an older man. She was not believed by those she told, in particular by her mother. Not all her life was sad, she had a pet horse and crushes on movie stars like many of us did. Stormy started stripping while she was in high school, which led to the porn industry. She is now a writer, director and star. In fact she has won many awards for her writing and directing, and was profiled in The New Yorker.

Stormy most of all wants control of her story. She gives us tidbits of her life that engage us, she has been married three times, she decided to get breast implants in 1998 because she noticed bigger breasts brought bigger tips. She named her implants, Thunder and Lightening. Stormy has a sense of humor, but she is a businesswoman at heart. She believes in capitalism, and she has always been a realist. And, she is smart, we can tell from her writing and she lets us know many times. Stormy is, most of all her own woman. Now, a woman of wealth, she is not sitting back on her laurels. She wants her story told in her way.

Stormy May help to change the way we look at women.There are those who look down on her profession, but she has made her own mark. No apologies from her. She became a public person after her affair with Trump was made public. Now she is the one capitalizing on that. That story is a few chapters in. She tells the story of Cohen and the pay off, and there is more than you thought.
Stormy is complex, like all of us, but she is never boring.

I like Stormy, she is upfront, tells us who she is, and we can like it or not.

They are just perfect now after the enhancement - discussed in detail should the need for a similar procedure arise. The book is a recounting of Stormy''s stormy childhood, her career as an adult entertainer, her love for horses, her dysfunctional family life (mother), her failed marriages and love for her daughter. Not a literary masterpiece, not much to say about anything including the infamous episode that made her a household name.

Really! This is a well written, funny, sometimes poignant book. Stormy writes about her crappy childhood and her encounter with Trump the same away — directly and without self pity. Notwithstanding all the salacious press about yeti pubes and mushrooms, her account of Trump is most interesting for the way it describes the power dynamics of their encounter—Trump’s entitled banality, her eventual capitulation. Trying to break out of the stereotype; reverting to class and gender norms. But Stormy’s life is a lot more than one sad romp with Trump. And she writes about it with intelligence, humor and self awareness. This book is the ultimate grab back to money and male privilege. Go, Stormy!

This book was well written and moving. An inspiring tale for women, regardless of their raising or current socioeconomic status. So often we''re told to just shut up, no matter how poorly or wrongly we are being treated. To think that this mere mortal not only wouldn''t shut up when put in the age old position, but had the particular set of brass balls required to stand up to the most powerful man in the world, it''s humbling that she shares her life story so openly and honestly in these pages. Stormy is heroic and I would highly recommend reading her book!

I really liked this book overall. The way the experiences are written out by Stormy are easily understood and allow me to put myself in her position, to some extent. The childhood beginning is sad and traumatic but probably not too different from what many kids unfortunately experience. Stormys life does seem to have significant episodes of drama-many of which are not porn related. These bursts of ongoing drama are what makes the book interesting and so unique. People of any political opinion would probably find this book a good read.

A real revelation. Not because of the already well-publicised Trump connection or the notorious corruption of him and people around him, but because of the honesty and humanity of the author’s story. Written by an adult for an adult audience - and by that, I mean grownups that can think for themselves - it tells her story without hiding anything but also without sensationalising anything. As such, this book is refreshingly easy to read and relate to. I very much enjoyed it.
