The Making of Donald Trump by David Cay Johnston read book description online

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER that first revealed the Russia connection

The culmination of nearly 30 years of reporting on Donald Trump, this in-depth report by Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter David Cay Johnston takes a revealingly close look at the mogul's rise to prominence --- and, now, ultimate power

Covering the long arc of Trump’s career, Johnston tells the full story of how a boy from a quiet section of Queens, NY would become an entirely new, and complex, breed of public figure. Trump is a man of great media savvy, entrepreneurial spirit, and political clout. Yet his career has been plagued by legal troubles and mounting controversy.
From the origins of his family’s fortune, to his own too-big-to-fail business empire; from his education and early career, to his whirlwind and ultimately successful presidential bid, The Making of Donald Trump provides the fullest picture yet of Trump’s extraordinary ascendency. Love him or hate him, Trump’s massive influence is undeniable, and figures as diverse as Woody Guthrie (who wrote a scathing song about Trump’s father) and Red Scare prosecutor Roy Cohn, mob bosses and high rollers, as well as the average American voter, have all been pulled into his orbit.
Drawing on decades of interviews, financial records, court documents, and public statements, David Cay Johnston, who has covered Trump longer and more closely than any other journalist working today, gives us the most in-depth look yet at the man who has shocked the world.

”Provides useful, vigorously reported overviews of Mr. Trump’s life and career ... Mr. Johnston, who has followed the real estate impresario for nearly three decades, offers a searing indictment of his business practices and creative accounting.Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

”David Cay Johnston has given us this year’s must-read Trump book.Lawrence O’Donnell, MSNBC’s The Last Word

”Johnston devastatingly covers ground he broke open as a reporter on the Trump beat in Philadelphia and at The New York Times...The best of investigative reporting is brought to bear on a man who could potentially lead the free world.”—USA Today

”Carefully fleshes out the details of Trump's known biography...with solid documentation.Tampa Bay Times

  • Awesome book

    By timothychong
    I couldn't stop reading it! It's inconceivable how this racist, conceited, and vindictive lier who cheated the tax system, hired illegal immigrants, exploited workers, colluded with imprisoned criminals, undermined family members and lies to the world can get to where he is right now. It's hard to believe this book is not a fiction.
