Rick Reilly transports readers onto the golf course 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 hit rounds with Trump, interviewed several of Trump's caddies, and tracked down dozens of others who have golfed beside the man, reporting their accounts of the most outlandish antics they've observed on the course. Among them, this book reveals: His outrageous cheating behavior Why Trump got punched out on the 9th hole at Winged Foot, NY (he was caught cheating)Stories from contractors whom Trump refused to pay after they had completed their workHow Trump has gotten himself in trouble on rounds with world leadersPrivate courses he's applied to which have refused himHow Trump uses the presidency to sell golf memberships to his clubsThe disrespectful ways Trump treats women on the course, at golf tournaments, and in his clubsHilarious and troubling, COMMANDER IN CHEAT is an indictment of Trump's character.

Recensioner i media

"Eye-popping."--Los Angeles Times "[Commander in Cheat] is filled with vivid allegations about Trump's cheating -- how he once threw broadcaster Mike Tirico's ball off the green during a round, how he manipulates the value of his courses to get tax breaks, how he exaggerates his golf scores."--The Washington Post "Golf is the spine of this shocking, wildly humorous book, but humanity is its flesh and spirit....It's all hilarious in Reilly's gifted hands."--Chicago Sun-Times "Great writing...If you really don't like Trump, this is your perfect book."--Chris Matthews, MSNBC's Hardball "Brilliant...Very, very funny when it comes to the details of what Donald Trump does....[Commander in Cheat is] the great Father's Day Book."--Laurence O'Donnell, MSNBC's The Last Word "Commander in Cheat is an incredibly creative book, regardless what you think of President Trump, regardless of where you are on the political spectrum. It takes us places behind the press conferences and the staged interviews....It take us into Trump's past, places where there were no cameras, no speech writers, no handlers, no aides. It is just Donald Trump with his appetites, Donald Trump with his excesses, Donald Trump with his flaws. Donald Trump with both his love for golf, and his propensity to play games with the truth."--The Providence Journal "Stunning -- and damning."--Golf Digest "Reilly uses golf to reveal larger truths. Or, in this case, lies." --The Arizona Republic "An eye-watering account of the president's abuse of the rules of golf....[an] unrelenting hatchet job." --The Times (London) "The latest anti-Trump expose isn't about Russia collusion, his taxes or his tweets. It's about his favorite pastime....Delve[s] into allegations the president isn't always honest out on the course."--Fox News "Commander in Cheat is one of the most surprising pieces of muckraking of the Trump era....Reilly's right to say Trump sees a golf course like he does the Oval Office...Every one of Trump's most disgusting qualities surfaces in golf."--The Ringer "Relying on testimony from playing partners, caddies, and former Trump employees, Reilly pokes more holes in Trump's claims than there are sand traps on all of his courses combined. It is by turns amusing and alarming....P.G. Wodehouse would have approved."--The New Yorker "There's a new tell-all book about the president...The specific anecdotes are where Commander in Cheat really takes off."--Stephen Colbert, The Late Show "Renowned sports columnist Reilly...has known the president for 30 years...If Reilly was once a Trump favorite, he no longer will be...[An] amusing, entertaining assessment of a congenital liar."--Kirkus Reviews "Building on his firsthand experience by interviewing scores of golf pros, caddies, and opponents, Reilly paints a side-splitting portrait of a congenital cheater."--Esquire, Most Anticipated Books of the Year "Sportswriting can be a lens into any part of our culture, and [Commander in Cheat] proves my point... a clever way to make sense of White House chaos."--The Week, Books to Read in 2019 "Assails Trump's 'ethics deficit.'" --Associated Press
