Description

An uproarious indictment of Donald Trump's lying, cheating, and poor sportsmanship - by the best-selling author and acclaimed sportswriter.

Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump is an on-the-ground and behind-the-scenes look at Trump's ethics deficit on and off the course. Reilly will transport listeners 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 been with Trump on the fairway, the green, and in the weeds and has seen firsthand how the president plays - and it's not pretty. Based on his personal experiences and interviews with dozens of golf pros, amateurs, developers, partners, opponents, and even caddies who have firsthand experience with Trump on the course, Reilly takes a deep and often hilarious look at how Trump shamelessly cheats at golf, lies about it, sues over it, bullies with it, and profits off it.

From Trump's ridiculous claim to have won 18 club championships, to his devious cheating tricks, to his tainted reputation as a golf course tycoon, Commander in Cheat tells you everything you need to know about the man.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"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)

"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)

Famulous Audio Read!!

I loved this read!!

I found myself laughing out loud so many times. Rick’s reading this in his own words was perfect, when he would imitate Donald it was like I could actually hear Donald saying it.

This book must be taken seriously.

There is a danger that the title of this book would lead a potential reader to pass it by as not worthy of serious readers. That would be a mistake. It is a profound extended metaphor of the character of Donald Trump. It is more revealing and disheartening than the political books. The last line summarizes it well: you can buy a trophy and say you won the tournament, but you are no champion.

A must for every golfer or non golfer!

It all make sense now. A phenomenal book that fills in so many questionable areas regarding Trump. It is a book that I cannot stop talking about. I am a golfer but my non golfers listened as well and loved it. Well done and the presentation was perfect!

You don't need to love golf to enjoy this book

I have zero interest in golf. None. But I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Fantastic performance. I would recommend.

Like catnip for actual golfers

I don’t think the casual person would like this book. But if you are a golfer and admire the game and all it stands for, then this book might be the most entertaining thing you read all year. I didn’t think it was possible to like trump less, but Reilly’s book, sticking only to golf and remaining apolitical throughout, paints the portrait of a truly despicable person. I’m gonna give this book to my father, it might actually be the most persuasive argument against trump for a septuagenarian brain! Most golfers are Republicans, which makes this actually in important work, and analyzing the moral character of a man through a sport like golf is a genius approach of psychological analysis. I loved to read Reilly’s sports illustrated back-page articles growing up. They were always great. This is right up there with some of his best work. Well done, Reilly. And most authors are horrible narrators and he was not. Bonus points!

I Loved it . R. Reilly narration is wonderful!

Bravo!!!! I believe this book is THE BEST book I've read, by far, that exposes Exactly who D.Trump is now & has always been throughout his life.
I have listened to many, many audible books on him from political, psychological problems, biographical upbringings, as well as his corrupt & unapologetic "business practices " & inability to think of consequences of his actions . He has Severe Narcissistic personality disorder & our lives are in his hands & that should scare the entire population of the United States.
I feel that the way this book uses the game of Golf to so perfectly parallel D. Trump's lack of integrity in every aspect of his life .It would be such an eye opening way for some of these Trump supporters to see him in this perspective .There are many people that love & Respect the game & can use it as a litmus test on a person's true self by the way they play the game of GOLF.
I loved Reilly's narraration! The stories, the impressions, the enthusiasm & the passion he has for the game of Golf.He was so entertaining and all the pieces fit like glove to drive home the intention of the book. It is much better ,in my opinion,on Audible because I don't know how it would come across to me if I tried reading it.

Not just for golfers!

I really enjoyed the audio version of this book. It felt like talking with a friend who was telling a morality tale in the context of the game. I learned a lot about both. Thanks, Rick.

wow...

Great book full of information i never would have known. it's interesting to see how 45 is doing exactly what he did when he opened new golf courses. he cheats, doesnt care for the rule's, blatantly lies about his expenses... and simply does not back down even when he is wrong. this book is full of history and great examples backed by names and verifiable sources. very well written.

Absolutely LOVE This Book!

This book explains it all: money, golf, money, bullying, money, cheating, money, more cheating, more golf, lying, corruption, "winning" at all costs, more lying, more cheating. I think that covers it.

I knew it!

I can't stand guy's who don't play by the rules , cut in line, and driving a cart on the Green? Golf Was one of the last places that you could count on some decorum.There should have been more people standing up to that ass. How did they ever elect him president? and what does that say about all the complacent politicians who were just playing along. disgusting

Better than expected

I saw an interview he did about the book and liked how he told his stories. He’s a great narrator, he should do this more often. The short stories about Trump are pretty funny, and he gives a little history about golf’s past among previous presidents. I would listen to this again.

An accurate summation of 45s morals through golf.

Every story helps me understand the Idiocracy that is Trump. Golf sets a baseline for character and ethics and Trump can belch whatever narrative he wants but his actions in the golf world speak his truth.

A honest and character revealing book about the 45th president of the United States

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever loved the sport or had someone they loved that loved the golf .It brought back memories of my dad and draging around a course a golf bag bigger than me. This is by far the best book I have read that reveals who Donald Trump truly is .Thank you for this entertaining and honest book

How true it is!

Thoroughly enjoyed the book. The actions and manners observed daily match what's depicted in book.
