Waterstones Says

A brilliantly original angle from which to skewer the iconoclasm of the Trump presidency, Commander in Cheat recounts the absurd claims, unsporting practices and shameful behaviour demonstrated by the US President on the golf course. Reilly’s unimpeachably shocking and hilarious book offers intriguing insights into The Donald’s disregard for rules and regulations of any kind.

Shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year 2019

'This book is dedicated to the truth. It's still a thing.'

Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump is a fascinating on-the-ground and behind-the-scenes survey of Donald Trump's ethics deficit on and off the golf course.Renowned sports writer Rick Reilly transports readers onto the greens with President Trump, revealing the absurd ways in which he lies about his feats, and what they can tell us about the way he leads off the course in the most important job in the world.

Reilly has been with Trump on the fairways, the greens and in the rough, he has seen how the President plays - and it's not pretty. Based on his personal experiences, and interviews with dozens of golf pros, amateurs, developers, partners, opponents, and even caddies who have first-hand involvement with Trump out on the course, Reilly takes a deep and often hilarious look at how Trump shamelessly cheats at golf, lies about it, sues over it, bullies with it, and profits from it.

From Trump's ridiculous claim to have won eighteen club championships, to his devious cheating tricks, to his tainted reputation as a golf course tycoon, Commander in Cheat tells you everything you need to know about the man
