On top of the world ...in a house of cards
The tabloids tracked his every move. The business magazines predicted his demise. And the public couldn't get enough. But the only people privy to Donald Trump's real story were the members of his inner circle - men such as Jack O'Donnell, a top executive at Atlantic City's Trump Plaza Casino until April, 1990. For three years O'Donnell witnessed the goings-on in the House of Trump that the people only guessed at. Now he reveals what he saw.
Here's the inside story of Trump's legendary tirades, his convenient forgetfulness, and the infamous Donald Trump ego. O'Donnell tells how the Plaza staff catered to Trump's personal whims, and to those of his mistress - and how the man who built the largest gambling hall in the world knew little about running a casino.
From the hypocrisy, bad deals, and the monumental debt to the untold tales of Marla and Ivana, Trumped! rips the mask off the mighty Trump facade - revealing a man whose castle is about to collapse.

Intriguing and revealing story.
Yes, because it sheds interesting light on a major public figure.
The narration was very good, and kept the pace rolling along, particularly through technical descriptions of the gambling business.
I received a free copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review courtesy of audio book blast.
"Donald Trump is a good businessman". That's one of the core elements of his brand, and if you've been paying attention to U.S. politics at all recently, it's one you'll have heard ad nausium. If even half of what this book alleges is true, it's also a fabrication. Taking some of what's written with a grain of salt--after all, the source is a man who admits to a major falling-out with Trump--Trumped gives some fascinating potential insight into a man who has branded himself as very rich, very successful, a man who can fix anything from companies to countries with his deal-making. I'd highly recommend reading this one if you want to learn more about a major public figure who looks likely to leave his mark on the U.S. political arena. Along the way, you'll also pick up some fascinating tidbits about the gambling industry, boxing promotion and the world of entertainment more generally.
