This strikes me hard !! a inside view of the man who would be our President? His mistakes, his accomplishments, his flaws his humanity, his good side his not so much side? an in depth study? so this makes up my mind and I will vote for Mr Trump on November 8th 2016.

I was interested in reading some Trump biographies that were written prior to his run for presidency. I was expecting to learn about his rise and fall (rises and falls??). I was NOT expecting this book to be so entertaining!! Author Timothy O’Brien has written a very funny, tongue-in-cheek, poking-fun-at-The-Donald book. My favorite parts are the tips at the end of each chapter, tips for being like Trump. The one that made me laugh out loud was something like this: Tip #1: Bring your wife and your mistress to the same boxing match, on the same helicopter. Hire an escort to be your mistress’ date. Assume no one will catch on. Tip #2: Take your wife and your mistress skiing in Aspen, at the same time. Assume they will not spot each other. Tip #3: When they see each other and start fighting, flee the scene. Tip #4: Forget that your wife was a competitive skier, and assume she’ll never catch up to you. But, the book is not a joke, it’s actually a very well done biography. It starts with his father, Fred Trump, (and that guy legit WAS a self-made millionaire!). Fred’s father passed away and Fred started a construction company as a teenager, with his mother having to drive him around and also sign everything because he wasn’t old enough to do so himself! And some of the stuff that Donald Trump did WAS impressive. Unfortunately it was mostly impressive because it seemed impossible for him to get away with it. No matter what happened, no matter how badly things were going, Trump was able to claim that things were great, and rosy, and he was making billions of dollars! And people would buy into it—buy stock in a company that the experts claimed was worthless, partner with Trump in a no-value deal, etc, over and over again. And Trump would triumph (although everybody else would lose out, but hey, that’s THEIR problem!). There were details on many of Trumps feuds, and interviews with his employees (mostly happy and seemed to love their jobs) and his wives, friends, and enemies. And the inevitable comparison with PT Barnum was presented, which was also a pretty funny section. I enjoyed this book tremendously, and would recommend it to anyone who has a sense of humor or who wants to know background on Donald Trump!

This book is impossible to put down. The writer obviously respects Trump's moxie while simultaneously laughing at the fabrication of the fable that was Donald Trump.
