The Inside Story of the Real President Trump, by His Former Attorney and Personal Advisor—The Man Who Helped Get Him Into the Oval Office
Once Donald Trump’s fiercest surrogate, closest confidant, and staunchest defender, Michael Cohen knows where the skeletons are buried.
This is the most devastating business and political horror story of the century. As Trump’s lawyer and “fixer,” Cohen not only witnessed firsthand but was also an active participant in the inner workings of Trump’s business empire, political campaign, and presidential administration.
This is a story that you have not read in newspapers, or on social media, or watched on television. These are accounts that only someone who worked for Trump around the clock for over a decade—not a few months or even a couple of years—could know. Cohen describes Trump’s racist rants against President Barack Obama, Nelson Mandela, and Black and Hispanic people in general, as well as the cruelty, humiliation, and abuse he leveled at family and staff. Whether he’s exposing the fact that Trump engaged in tax fraud by inflating his wealth or electronic fraud by rigging an online survey, or outing Trump’s Neanderthal views towards women or his hush-money payments to clandestine lovers, Cohen pulls no punches.
He shows Trump’s relentless willingness to lie, exaggerate, mislead, or manipulate. Trump emerges as a man without a soul—a man who courts evangelicals and then trashes them, panders to the common man, but then rips off small business owners, a con man who will do or say absolutely anything to win, regardless of the cost to his family, his associates, or his country.
At the heart of Disloyal, we see how Cohen came under the spell of his charismatic "Boss" and, as a result, lost all sense of his moral compass.
The real "real" Donald Trump who permeates these pages—the racist, sexist, homophobic, lying, cheating President—will be discussed, written about, and analyzed for years to come.

Good read .I liked how the author shows the devilish and scheming side of himself and knows what he is doing is against his own found principles.Fame has a price and he has paid for it in many ways .Trump hooked on to him good and threw him under the bus when he was no longer needed.
Michael Cohen's reflections appear to be just another 'tell all' book, however, it is so much more than the same old, same old. There are several threads which run through the book, dreams fulfilled, misreading the character of a role model, a loving family's support, paying a price for silencing one's conscience and redeeming a life meant for more than just amassing fortunes. For anyone who thinks he or she understands big business, this book reveals the nine-tenths of what most people think they know. Some might dismiss it as 'getting even', however there is a surprising bond Mr. Cohen holds for his former employer. Truth mingles with the exposure of a criminal mindset, and compassion mixes with confessions. The fact that Mr. Cohen admitted his failings and took the consequences of his actions, then turned the experience into a lifelong lesson is redemptive. His written word is like a conversation, that is worth hearing.
