A comprehensive biography of Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner in the presidential election campaign. Trump Revealed will be reported by a team of award-winning Washington Post journalists and co-authored by investigative political reporter Michael Kranish and senior editor Marc Fisher.
Trump Revealed will offer the most thorough and wide-ranging examination of Donald Trump’s public and private lives to date, from his upbringing in Queens and formative years at the New York Military Academy, to his turbulent careers in real estate and entertainment, to his astonishing rise as the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination. The book will be based on the investigative reporting of more than two dozen Washington Post reporters and researchers who will leverage their expertise in politics, business, legal affairs, sports, and other areas. The effort will be guided by a team of editors headed by Executive Editor Martin Baron, who joined the newspaper in 2013 after his successful tenure running The Boston Globe, which included the “Spotlight” team’s investigation of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church.
WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY!
I bought this because it was listed as a BIOGRAPHY, supposedly so well "researched". What a silly opinion piece diguised as factual reporting. Shocked that they can put so much spin on "facts", I researched (after I bought it, my mistake) and these "reporters" are all employees of Jeff Bezos (of Amazon) who is severely Anti-Trump. If this is an opinion piece, DONT SELL IT AS A BIOGRAPHY. STUPID BOOK, WASTE OF MONEY. MISLEADING. GARBAGE.
I read this book as part of my research in due diligence as a citizen. I chose it as a result of hearing the authors interviewed on NPR. The Washington Post realized in the spring (April?) that Trump was likely to be the a Republican candidate for president so they sent an army of reporters out to gather facts. Kranish and Fisher added interviews, including 20 hrs one-on-one with Trump, in writing the finished biography (includes images). The result is an objective view showing remarkably positive qualities, e.g., strong work ethic and respect for his family, as well as some not so positive, e.g., total lack of empathy for anyone other than himself and quite limited self-control with delusional thinking. If Mr. Trump could get out of his own way and allow himself to see beyond his own interests and listen to the wisdom of others rather than feel threatened, he could perhaps lead those he cannot now even see adequately. I'm highly recommend it!
