Donald J. Trump by Conrad Black

Donald J. Trump

Donald Trump Is a President Like No Other… Bestselling presidential historian Conrad Black (Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Champion of Freedomand Richard M. Nixon: A Life in Full) can vouch for that. Black has negotiated with Trump in business; he knows him as a perceptive, thoughtful, and amusing friend; and, as a presidential biographer, Black can place Trump in historical context and much needed perspective. The Trump he knows, and the Trump he...

    I read this in a day and a half, which is quite different from Black's other voluminous and wordy books which would take weeks. Black takes a look at the Donald Trump he knows from business dealings and as a friend and tries to present a counterpoint to what he feels is an unfair and even dishonest media portrayal of Trump. Black begins with a short biography (my eyes started glazing over as he outlined details of various financial acquisitions)....

    Okay, maybe you do not like Donald Trump. And maybe you do not like Conrad Black. Doesn't matter. This is still a good book -- thoroughly researched, well written, and persuasively argued. It provides the reader with a quick biography of The Donald, focusing on his past business and public activities, and then it analyses his unique rise through the primaries up to including the election of November 2016. Conrad Black uses his impressive knowledg...

    Mr Black has written a book which shamelessly panders to his avatar Donald Trump and as in everything Trump, it attempts to normalize garish and immoral behaviour.Most readers will find it a farcical screed as they watch Mr Black contort himself like a midway elastic man to make Trump’s lurid actions seem virtuous. Examples abound: “He (Trump) parked a lot of dubious assets on an underinformed investing public”, made off with $44 million an...

    I hesitate to even review this book because of the possible backlash from friends but most know I am a big supporter of both Trump. A quick read with all the details needed to assess Trump's success so far with none of the crap you hear from the media. Here he is with all his faults and when you step back you realize America has been on a downward spiral for the past 20 plus years and something had to give -I mean really......does anyone believe ...

    Okay, so first of all, Conrad Black, the author, is a Canadian so he doesn't really have a dog in this fight. He has done time in the U.S. if that qualifies him. That being said, this is a 200+ page puff piece on 45 so bring along the salt grains if you want to read it. I will say that in future I will not be so quick to accept the perpetual negativity of sources like WaPo, the NY Times, etc. and I admit I have gone from extremely anti-Trump to j...

    Fantastic book. Conrad Black is very fair in portraying his subject (which is something new when it comes to President Trump). However, the book is not complete, and that is not the authors fault, the story of our current president is not done being told.

    A (too) quick readHaving enjoyed Black’s volume on FDR, this one seemed quite lite. Kindof like reviewing the headlines of the Trump administration. Maybe we’ll see a more complete biography a few years from now when we’re looking back on the Trump era.
