Publisher's Summary

This book almost didn’t see the light of day as government officials tried to bar its publication.

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 this audiobook - the racist, sexist, homophobic, lying, cheating president - will be discussed, written about, and analyzed for years to come.

Only few books make it to my 5 star list

This one is a keeper and one of the best tell- all books on Trump. it is not because it is salacious as are the others, but it is because it is written in an unambiguous language. The author of this book tells it like someone from the foremost front row without any sliver of desperation to sound sensational. This book takes you through a crescendo of emotions that may make you erupt in laughter, sighs and sadness all at once.

A very believable account

somewhat ironical how this story is told by a liar and unethical person, but he comes across as very truthful. I'm not sure if he is a really good deceiver or not, but I believe his retelling of his life with trump. its worth listening to.

Shocking... devastating

Want to know a lot of Trump's dirty little secrets? This is a tell-all by the guy who knows them, and sometimes even the architect.

Good insight, confirmed by other sources.

In humint (human intelligence) you need to determine the veracity of what the source is telling you. You look at the information itself AND the source. Cohen was in a position to acquire the information revealed. Much of the information is confirmed by other independent sources, agencies and direct observations. It gives a lot of nuances and insights about Donald Trump, his capabilities, intentions and methods. HOWEVER, although he admits to being and acting as a reprehensible "fixer" you will find - especially towards the end - Cohen spinning his tale to cast himself as victimized. Read/listen to this book - with Woodward's - to get a nuanced idea of how DJT operates, the danger to the Constiturional Republic and what is probably yet to.come.

PLEASE READ THIS BOOK!

My daughter , a young lawyer , said “Mom you have to read this book and I can’t put it down.” She was right! Michael Cohen came to realize too late he was under the “Cult of Trump” and takes full responsibility for everything he did as he tried to please him. Well written, mesmerizing and easy to follow. It was in the same league of one my all time favorite books Bill Browder’s “Red Notice “ about Russian oligarchs controlled by Putin stealing the majority of the Russian state assets . Browder was also alleged to have committed crimes by the Russian State and was the subject of Putin’s wrath as was Cohen of Trump’s but Browder did not behave badly like Cohen. Whatever your political leanings are PLEASE read this and before the election to Inform your decision and vote.

Cohen's mea culpa is to warn us. Take heed!

The story was well told. The narrator was perfect - sounded almost like Cohen. Recommended!

A worthwhile read before November 3

This book certainly gives food for thought. Is there a reason for the suppression of this story?

Amazing Story

Blew right through this. Our president is such a crook. How can anyone still support this bloated, syphilitic, baked potato of a criminal? How is Donald not in prison for several years? Pray for this country.

Buy this book

The narrator does an excellent job- he doesn’t sound like the course Trump sycophant author I feared might be chosen as the reader. Michael Cohen is a liar and a crook— but his story is highly consistent with all of the biographical information I’ve read about Donald Trump. Buy this important book- not to support Michael Cohen, but to assure this information gets out to the public.

A crook, but at least he's honest.

At last, we have someone who can really confirm without question who really is in the white house.

Disloyal:

I got the feeling Mr. Cohen is remorseful. Remorse is one thing but for the actions he was involved with he should feel so. At least he took responsibility for his part in the creation of the worst President we've ever had in our history. If only Trump remains historically the worst President in our history, that will be a good thing. I hope he doesn't get a second term because I don't believe a democratic republic like ours can survive another four more Trump years. Thank you for sharing a needed warning to us and making it apparent how important voting is, our voices really do matter!

It Takes One to Know One—Sleezballs

Michael Cohen admits to being no better than a gangster lawyer. His lack of scruples is exceeded only by his boss Donald Trump. Oddly, his admission to underhanded, dishonest, and twisted use if the law completely squares with Trump’s history, much of which can be verified by a minimal amount of research. “Disloyal: A Memoir” is unnerving. It is clear Michael Cohen knows Trump’s worst character flaws. He was the most intimate of enablers. He knows not only Trump’s darkness, but exposes early details of the Jerry Falwell, Jr. and wife Becky’s scandal. Cohen reveals the he and all Trump “yes men” are capable of anything to please Donald Trump—until Trump turns on them. It is a great read—believable and terrifying.

Engaging, well-written/edited and shocking

Wow! Wow! Wow! Cohen “knows where all the bodies are,” as they say. He has nothing left to lose, and I believed every word in this book. Every story of how Trump manipulates, breaks the law, cons people, etc. He takes ownership of his dirty deeds and give the reader a behind the scenes of how those dirty deeds came together. This book should be read by every American before heading to the polls. Highly recommend this book.

Feds and Trump supporters ARE Bullies/ Criminal s

Thanks Michael for writing this. BULLIES!!! Can you get those guards fired? Along with the judge who gave you that unfair sentence? You can't fix our countries woes with a favor from your old neighborhood pals? This was hard to listen to due to all the injustice. This is a must listen. The narrator did an excellent job . Very straight forward and honest. I wish you well.
