In May 2017, I purchased Kranish and Fisher’s book, Trump Revealed: The Definitive Biography of the 45th President, because it provided detailed background on Trump’s experience as an elementary school student, a topic about which I wrote this May 07, 2017, post.
I did not plan on reading the book. However, in searching for the pages on Trump’s elementary school years, I also read about his family history, which Kranish and Fisher offer in remarkable detail.
I was both impressed and intrigued, and I ended up reading the whole book.
In fact, the entire biography is written in consistently-amazing detail, which I find astounding given that most of the book was written over a three-month period in mid-2016.
The authors, Michael Kranish and Marc Fisher, both work for the Washington Post (WP), and WP dispatched scores of its professionals across the US and around the world in order to complete the Trump biography in record time.
The book was originally published in August 2016 under the title, Trump Revealed: An American Journey of Ambition, Ego, Money, and Power; the title was altered and an afterword added following Trump’s being elected president in November 2016.
It is impossible to read Trump Revealed without gaining an impeccably-documented sense of the man himself.
One of my favorite parts of the book concerns Trump suing both author (Timothy O’Brien) and publishers of another Trump biography, TrumpNation, to the tune of $5 billion for allegedly misrepresenting Trump’s net worth.
Trump agreed to be interviewed for O’Brien’s book, but the information Trump offered concerning his net worth ranged from $1.7 billion to $9.5 billion depending upon the Book Review: Trump Revealed: The Definitive Biography of the 45th President | deutsch29:
