Finished Art of the Deal. Took a little longer than expected, but I wasn’t exactly reading for speed.
Whenever someone writes about themselves, or justifies their own actions, you must expect a healthy slant or even outright exaggeration in favor of themselves. I’ve seen it throughout the inaugural addresses – Presidents who we hold as paragons attempt to justify actions that we have come to view as deplorable, and vice versa. President Donald Trump is much the same way, though we have the added benefits of 1) Seeing him in action – hearing his speeches and reading fact checkers and 2) Reading his own words, in which he admits that he engages in “truthful hyperbole”. Art of the Deal is Trump filtered through a ghostwriter. Some of it is accurate, some may not be so accurate, and it will be largely positive in his favor.
