In Gaslighting America, Carpenter breaks down Trump's formula, showing why it's practically foolproof, playing his victims, the media, the Democrats, and the Republican fence-sitters perfectly.

I really like this book, Amanda breaks the it down step by step and gives examples of people who were victims of gas-lighting. She even recounts the time she was a victim. You cant read this book and not see the tactic used by the current President. Democratic and Republicans have used this tactic including Nixon and the Clintons but Trump uses it constantly and now I can recognize the tactic when i see it.
