Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Conrad Black, bestselling author of Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Champion of Freedom, Richard M. Nixon: A Life in Full, and Flight of the Eagle: America's Rise from Colonial Upstart to the World's Superpower, turns his attention to his friend President Donald J. Trump and provides the most intriguing and significant, but certainly not uncritical, analysis yet of Trump's political rise. Ambitious in intellectual scope, contrarian in many of its opinions, and admirably concise, this is surely set to be one of the most provocative political books you are likely to read this year.
Review Quote*

"Is there anything new to say of the most written-about man alive? Yes. Conrad Black is a political observer, an historian, and a businessman who's done business with Donald Trump (he sold him a building), and was one of the first to take his campaign seriously. Black understands the 45th president not only in the context of his pre-political life and family but in the great sweep of American history. This is an admiring but undeluded biography whose every page has either a shrewd new insight or revealing detail, and often both. It's also beautifully written, with both a droll wit its subject will surely appreciate and an under- standing of the visceral connection between Trump and the millions of Americans who felt abandoned by both parties. A great and knowing read, and a biography that has the size of its subject." -Mark Steyn, bestselling author of America Alone, After America, and The Undocumented Mark Steyn "This hard-hitting, well-written, and admirably objective book, written by a remarkably talented historian who moreover knows his subject well, will inform all subsequent serious biographies of Donald J. Trump. There is ammunition galore here both for those who love the president and those who loathe him." -Andrew Roberts, bestselling author of Napoleon the Great and Churchill: Walking with Destiny "Most readers, like myself, have never met either Conrad Black nor Donald J. Trump. But after reading this engaging biography, those of any political persuasion would wish to do both."-Professor Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow in Residence in Classics and Military History at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, from his Foreword

"An unremittingly honest yet admiring account of Donald J. Trump. Incandescent intelligence and uplifting prose and vocabulary escort the reader on Trump's journey from hard-charging businessman to equally robust president. Deeply informative about things not well known or not reported, the book is a luminous account of our fascinating and always interesting chief."-William Bennett, bestselling author and former United States Secretary of Education

"Conrad Black's new book on Donald Trump is a brilliant analysis of the remarkable talents and unusual foibles that brought Trump to the presidency of the United States. Black knows Mr. Trump and-with his uncommon knowledge of American history-is able to place him in a fascinating context. Readers will be delighted with Black's skills as a writer-his scholarship, sense of humor, and irony are on prominent display. A must-read at this seminal juncture in American history."-The Right Honourable Brian Mulroney, former Prime Minister of Canada

"Black's accounts of the primaries and the general election, not to mention his hero's unremittingly embattled presidency, are vivid, judicious, and perceptive. For those who did not follow the election closely, or somehow missed its import, Black's book is the best place to start to understand an unprecedented president." -Edward Short, City Journal

"A highly entertaining taleā€¦There is no going back to the politics of the 1980s and 1990s-and to understand why, readers would do well to consult Conrad Black's outstanding biography." -James Piereson, The New Criterion
