"Dishes it...titillating...a revealing attempt to separate Trump the
reality from Trump the reality show."
USA Today

"Highly entertaining."—The New York Times

"Never having met O'Brien...I don't presume to know whether he's having
fun yet. But I doubt that I'm alone among members of the Fourth Estate
in experiencing a twinge of envy."

New Yorker

"At the start of his career in hype and carnival barking, the press fawned
over Trump; he made great copy. It's refreshing that reality has finally
crept into the coverage."—Village Voice

"An engrossing romp...hilarious...peppered with wit and irony...the
perfect base to Trump's acidic persona...an instructive tongue-in-cheek
primer for would-be Trumps."—Publishers Weekly

"Sarcastic at times, hilarious and irreverent at others, the book
demystifies the star of The Apprentice as the poor man's rich man and
portrays him as a potty-mouthed P. T. Barnum with a bad comb-over."

Palm Beach Post

"Entertaining...gets down and dirty...a myth-busting biography."
Kirkus Reviews

"Somewhere there is another country, far beyond the pale, known as Bad
Taste, and Trump has devoted his life to racing through it and staking as
many private claims as possible, pausing only to yodel back to the
homeland songs of himself."—

Michael Lewis, author of Liar's Poker and Moneyball
