The book shows the real Donald Trump. In one chapter, O'Brien relates how DJT is like P.T. Barnum, the huckster from the 1800s. I think this is a fitting analogy to the Trump Presidency. DJT is a master at marketing, publicity, but not a manager. We shall see what happens to the USA under his Presidency.
Top reviews from other countries
His father and siblings bailed him out multiple times through the 1980's, 1990's, and by 2005? He was dead broke. No wonder he didn't want to show his tax returns. He has only dealt with mobsters and crooks. He was never a billionaire. He was worth nothing, assets vs. debts, until "The Apprentice" saved him from losing everything he had. Then, his attempts to keep himself in the news constantly, while condemning the media. Don't buy it. He lives for the media. He lives for constant attention - good and bad, as long as his name is constantly mentioned. He is quite mentally ill. A pathological liar. No conscience whatsoever. A confirmed racist.
He tried to sue the author over the writing of this book, for 5 billion. It was thrown out of court by the judge. Lots more. Very insightful book. Well researched. This is like a truthful continuation of "The Art of the Deal." I recommend it highly. I can't put it down!
