"A rare, insider's look at the life of Donald Trump from the bestselling author of the Killing series, based on exclusive interview material and deep research. Readers around the world have been enthralled by journalist and New York Times bestselling author Bill O'Reilly's Killing series-riveting works of nonfiction that explore the most famous events in history. Now O'Reilly turns his razor-sharp observations to his most compelling subject thus far-President Donald J. Trump. In this thrilling narrative, O'Reilly blends primary, never-before-released interview material with a history that recounts Trump's childhood and family and the factors from his life and career that forged the worldview that the president of the United States has taken to the White House. Not a partisan pro-Trump or anti-Trump book, this is an up-to-the-minute, intimate view of the man and his sphere of influence-of "how Donald Trump's view of America was formed, and how it has changed since he became the most powerful person in the world"- from a writer who has known the president for thirty years. This is an unprecedented, gripping account of the life of a sitting president as he makes history. As the author will tell you, "If you want some insight into the most unlikely political phenomenon of our lifetimes, you'll get it here.""-- Provided by publisher.

The book was bad, but the liberal-left comments were worse. Grow up people.

Trump apologist and friend writes a book about Trump. Not much that is new or that you couldn't figure out yourself.

Bill is a proven liar and was fired for sexual harassment - not sure why the library is supporting a criminal by purchasing his book.

Interesting book. Background of his growing up was something I hadn't known before. Timeline of how he started in business to becoming the President. He's a very driven man. Democrats won't like it and I've already seen their posts. Sometimes I wonder if they even read the books or just post.

Pretty good book. The first 100 pages provide a background on President Trump’s life. An interesting tidbit by the author - only ten percent of journalists are registered Republicans. (That explains a lot.). The book also helps you to understand why President Trump is the way he is.

I found this book to be a interesting account of President Trump. O'Reilly writes of his early life, and the path that led him to run for President. If you hate him, you will hate this book. If you just want an idea of who he is, without all the vitriol, read this book.

I can tell you how the President really sees America. He sees about what P.T.Barnum saw, millions of chumps, marks, and suckers. As Harry Lime said, "Nobody thinks in terms of human beings. Governments don't. Why should we? They talk about the people and the proletariat, I talk about the suckers and the mugs. It's the same thing. They have their five-year plans, so have I." This book should have been titled, "Swindler's List."

As for the author, having been dishonourably separated from Fox, he now tries to support his lavish lifestyle by running a factory that churns out books on which he puts his name.

Another rapist profiting off of Dumpy. Nice.
