"Lost Tycoon presents an unvarnished, in-depth portrayal of the man who vows to 'Make America Great Again.' Although it was first published in 1993, Lost Tycoon shows us that The Donald's personal character, political philosophy, business ethics, and attitude towards women haven't changed much in the past two decades.Trump is a man of many lives, and many wives. He is arguably the greatest self-promoter in the annals of American business. After inheriting a fortune, he made and lost billions in real estate and casino gambling, rising phoenix-like from his own ashes. He is a reality television show star, a father, a grandfather, and an alleged rapist. In Hollywood terms, he has literally been the producer and director of his own biopic--a real life 'Citizen Kane,' whose father hammered the same lines into his head when [he] was a little boy: 'You are a killer . . . you are a king . . . you are a killer . . .you are a king.' Harry Hurt has created a cinema verité-style narrative that allows the words and actions of the principals to speak for themselves. It is indisputable that Donald's exploits in business, entertainment, and politics prove that he is--to borrow a metaphor from Fred Trump Sr.--'a killer.' Reading this important biography about the real Donald Trump will help you to make an informed and engaged choice as to whether he is worthy of being 'king.'"--Back cover.
