O'Brien was sued by the Donald over the reporting in this book, twice, but if anything, O'Brien makes the Donald look bombastic rather than purposely evil. At first I was disconcerted by the breezy style, but by the middle I understood that the style matched the subject matter. I was laughing by the time O’Brien tells us about the fight headlined daily in the New York papers between developer Trump and Mayor Koch in the 1980s. I got to the point where I Tim O'Brien restored my sense of humor.

TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald is a 2005 biographical book about Donald Trump that was written by Timothy L. O'Brien and published by Warner Books.

Timothy L. O’Brien is an award-winning journalist and the publisher of Bloomberg View. He is the author of two works of nonfiction: TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald and Bad Bet: The Inside Story of the Glamour, Glitz, and Danger of America’s Gambling Industry. He has worked at the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Talk magazine, and the Huffington Post. His debut novel, The Lincoln Conspiracy, was published in 2012.

The author is a journalist and spent years following Donald Trump and his exploits and captures the essence of the poster boy for the American Dream in this work. Barnum, the huckster from the 1800s. I think this is a fitting analogy to the Trump Presidency. DJT is a master at marketing, publicity, but not a manager.

The author has been following Donald Trump's story for the past 15 years, watching him rise, fall and rise again on a self-generated tide of publicity and endless hyperbolic statements. O'Brien keeps coming back to the numbers, however. The book's essence can be discerned in his analysis of the Forbes 400; for each year that the magazine reported Trump's personal wealth, the author has done his own reporting.

Whatever anyone thinks of Donald Trump, the truth is far more complex-and fascinating.

Drawing on interviews with colleagues and with Trump himself, the author journeys behind the image and the myths to provide a study of the colorful and contradictory world of billionaire real-estate mogul Donald Trump.

Despite the age of this book, it's even more timely now than when it was originally written. If you want to find out about the man behind the self-created myth, this is a good place to start. Be warned: you will not sleep well afterwards. Reading it, one feels like a steerage passenger aboard the Titanic reading a book about hypothermia.
  • Stonewing
A biography that deserves wide attention in this election season. Trump sued to stop it, not because he thought it was unfavorable to him, but simply because it estimated his net worth at much less than Trump claimed. Trump lost. The book is full of enlightening details of Trump's business failures and successes.

Published in 2005 and re-published in 2015 with an updated introduction. The author is a journalist and spent years following Donald Trump and his exploits and captures the essence of the poster boy for the American Dream in this work. So what is it about Trump that people tend to gravitate toward him? By watching videos, reading one of his books and especially this book, I finally got it. There is only one Donald Trump, he's a one man show and no one could surpass his ability for self promotion. He has been the same for decades with his arsenal of lies, cajoling or manipulation, the ultimate self-made super rich real estate tycoon. But is he super-rich? Depends on who is viewing it. He is if he says he is and it just might not be if the truth were told via the tax returns. Unless they pry them out of his cold dead hands they won't come to light. I found it fascinating that the author was sued regarding the release of his book, and Trump Lost. Not because of his character or similar unflattering items but basically for the fact that the Trump name is a “Brand”, how is he going to promote the super rich pay me to use my name if he's not worth mega bucks? After all Donald did supply plenty of fodder for the grist helping the author write the book. So folks buy and read all of his non fiction, fiction books pay him for classes and sorry to tell you it's all “smoke and mirrors”, there is only one and that's Donald and he is “The Greatest American Con Man”. Will he be the greatest President? History will one day examine his Presidency and all the controversy surrounding it. After he does retire, I don't doubt he will write another book “The Art of the Con: How I Duped Millions of American's to Vote For Me” and it will most likely be a best seller. I do recommend this book for everyone, especially if you have any future plans on doing business with the Trump.

This book was written in 2004, and published in 2005. However, it shows the real Donald Trump. He was a failure as a businessman, when his casino company went bankrupt. The Trump Hotels which included the three casinos in Atlantic City had him as Chairman and CEO, and each of them went bankrupt several times. However, Trump received his millions in salary, and his jet pilots were on the payroll of this company. He showed no ability to run the company. If this was common knowledge, why would anyone think that he would do the same when he ran the United States of America. This book also questions whether Trump was as wealthy as he says he is. It shows that in the 1990s, he was virtually broke, and had to get money from the banks and his family to keep the Trump Organization afloat.

The book shows the real Donald Trump. In one chapter, O'Brien relates how DJT is like P.T. Barnum, the huckster from the 1800s. I think this is a fitting analogy to the Trump Presidency. DJT is a master at marketing, publicity, but not a manager. We shall see what happens to the USA under his Presidency.

Extremely well written! Entertaining and enjoyable! I decided to buy the book after listening to the author on MSNBC. I felt he had a good insight into Trump. I wasn't disappointed! He tells the story with facts and data through the sweep and color of the 80's, through the 90's and up to 2005. What I thought about Trump was heightened in both directions; positive and negative. His creativity and vision as a builder was "amazing." But then his mismanagement combined with an out of control personal life puts him on the edge of financial destruction, Yet he manages to climb back from that through his "unbelievable" capabilities for self promotion. He is unique and brilliant at this. The problem is that the next thing that he says is solely for his self-promotion and self preservation. Doesn't have to be the truth! Doesn't have to be a lie! It's all about him. It's a disaster for Trump to be our president. You can't trust what he's saying. He could destroy our country and not even realizing he's doing it!

A must-read if you're trying to understand the day-to-day behavior of our commander-in-chief. This is not an opinion piece. It is well-researched and footnoted. Trump was actually an enthusiastic participant -- at least until it became apparent that the book was not going to be an adoring puff-piece.

His claim of being a billionaire is a work of fiction. Goes behind the scenes of years of Trumps business dealings.
A well written, entertaining book. Comical in some parts. Exposes years of Trumps business dealings. Very easy read.

If I put a 5% down payment on ten, one hundred million dollar properties, would that make me worth one billion dollars?

He forgets to back out the money he owes the banks.

He sued the author and lost . The American people should read this book to see who we have elected President.

If people ( and his other Republican nominees had bothered to read this book he may not have been given the job of President. Too bad people only have time to watch should bites on Fox news.

Everything is borrowed. He

You'll understand why he could never release his tax returns.
