Donald Trump: 'Don't Buy' The Washington Post Book About Me

A lot has been written about Donald Trump over the course of his presidential campaign. Since descending down the escalator back in June 2015 to announce his candidacy, Trump has dominated the headlines, the airways, and even the bookshelves.

One book in particular promises the "most in-depth look yet at the man who would be president." "The Making of Donald Trump" documents the long arch of the billionaire businessman's career, detailing his successes, legal troubles and mounting controversy as a politician.

The book is a result of nearly 30 years of reporting on Donald Trump by Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter, David Cay Johnston.
