"Highly entertaining."--The New York Times
"Never having met O'Brien...I don't presume to know whether he's having fun yet. But I doubt that I'm alone among members of the Fourth Estate in experiencing a twinge of envy." --New Yorker
"At the start of his career in hype and carnival barking, the press fawned over Trump; he made great copy. It's refreshing that reality has finally crept into the coverage."--Village Voice
"An engrossing romp...hilarious...peppered with wit and irony...the perfect base to Trump's acidic persona...an instructive tongue-in-cheek primer for would-be Trumps."--Publishers Weekly
"Sarcastic at times, hilarious and irreverent at others, the book demystifies the star of The Apprentice as the poor man's rich man and portrays him as a potty-mouthed P. T. Barnum with a bad comb-over." --Palm Beach Post
"Entertaining...gets down and dirty...a myth-busting biography."
"Somewhere there is another country, far beyond the pale, known as Bad Taste, and Trump has devoted his life to racing through it and staking as many private claims as possible, pausing only to yodel back to the homeland songs of himself."--Michael Lewis, author of Liar's Poker and Moneyball
