With unprecedented accessincluding personal interviews with Donald Trump himselfone of the nations leading business journalists reveals the good, the bad, and most of all, the ridiculous truth behind the public image of The Donald. Whatever anyone thinks of Donald Trump, the truth is far more complexand fascinating. Instead of society nightlife, most evenings hes at home watching TV and munching Oreos. He has a line of clothing and bottled water emblazoned with his image, yet he needed a loan from his siblings to stay afloat. His name is featured on some of the worlds most magnificent buildings and casinos, while a $1.8 billion debt hangs over his company. Hell use a friends cell phone to save money on a call. Hell call a journalist a total whack job on television, then turn around and invite him to fly down to Palm Beach on his private jet. These are the contradictions of Trumps world, and beneath the public faade, theres a man few people ever see. Now, New York Times business reporter Timothy L. OBrien pulls back the velvet curtain surrounding The Donaldwith access rarely granted to a reporter beforeand takes the polish off the image of Americas so called most popular billionaire.
