Book Review Trumped
By John R O’Donnell
One needs only to watch Trump on Apprentice to know that most, if not all, of the book is an accurate portrayal of Donald Trump. The book paints Donald as a selfish, egotistical, know-it-all who is more often wrong than he is right. Watching Donald on the few episodes of Apprentice that I watched tells me that this is pretty darn close to the truth.
The book gives the reader an inside look at the Atlantic City casino industry in the 1980s and early 1990s. It tells us about the inner-workings and lingo for such items as “Win” and “Pit”. The book is very informative as well as entertaining.
One could make the point, and Donald actually did, that the book was written by a disgruntled ex-employee with an ax to grind. I did not get that feeling while reading the book.
Although this book was printed long ago it is still an interesting read today.
