SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2019 WILLIAM HILL SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR. FROM THE JUDGES: 'Rick Reilly lets Donald's Trump relationship with his favourite sport speak for itself. Commander in Cheat is full of astonishing 'you could not make it up' detail delivered in full knowledge that nothing revealed would embarrass the President one jot. You will be howling with laughter and gasping in disbelief in equal measure so be careful when reading this fascinating book in public.' SHORTLISTED FOR THE GENERAL OUTSTANDING SPORTS WRITING AWARD AT THE 2020 TELEGRAPH SPORTS BOOK AWARDS. THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER. 'An eye-watering account of the president's abuse of the rules of golf' The Sunday Times 'Reilly pokes more holes in Trump's claims than there are sand traps on all his courses combined. It is by turns amusing and alarming' The New Yorker 'This book is dedicated to the truth. It's still a thing.' Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump is a fascinating on-the-ground and behind-the-scenes survey of Donald Trump's ethics deficit on and off the golf course.Renowned sports writer Rick Reilly transports readers onto the greens 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. 'Golf is like bicycle shorts. It reveals a lot about a man.' Reilly has been with Trump on the fairways, the greens and in the rough, he has seen 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 first-hand involvement with Trump out 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 from it. 'Somebody should point out that the way Trump does golf is sort of the way he does a presidency, which is to operate as though the rules are for other people.' From Trump's ridiculous claim to have won eighteen 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. 'You could write a book about what Trump's golf reveals about him. Here it is.'

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I have known Donald Trump for more than 30 years, and during that time, I have never believed anything he said. He was like your crazy uncle at Thanksgiving who tells the kids whoppers about punching Sinatra while the parents roll their eyes in the kitchen. #2 I liked Trump because he was what I thought a gazillionaire should be like: his name in big letters on skyscrapers and on giant jets, hot and cold running blondes hanging on each arm, $1,000 bills sticking out of his socks. #3 Trump has been feuding with Mark Cuban, billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, for years. In 2013, he tweeted that he could write a bigger check than Cuban and not even know it was missing. Cuban remembers the tweet well. #4 Trump has claimed that he has won 18 club championships, but this is a lie so absurd that even golfers find it hard to believe. Buddy Marucci, a golfer who has been breaking par for 45 years, claims that he has only eight club championships.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER "Reilly pokes more holes in Trump's claims than there are sand traps on all of his courses combined. It is by turns amusing and alarming."?-The New Yorker "Stunning? and damning."?- Golf Digest "Every one of Trump's most disgusting qualities surfaces in golf."?-The Ringer An outrageous indictment of Donald Trump's appalling behavior when it comes to golf? on and off the green? and what it reveals about his character. Donald Trump loves golf. He loves to play it, buy it, build it, and operate it. He owns 14 courses around the world and runs another five, all of which he insists are the best on the planet. He also claims he's a 3 handicap, almost never loses, and has won an astonishing 18 club championships. How much of all that is true? Almost none of it, acclaimed sportswriter Rick Reilly reveals in this unsparing look at Trump in the world of golf. Based on Reilly's own experiences with Trump as well as interviews with over 100 golf pros, amateurs, developers, and caddies, Commander in Cheat is a startling and at times hilarious indictment of Trump and his golf game. You'll learn how Trump cheats (sometimes with the help of his caddies and Secret Service agents), lies about his scores (the "Trump Bump"), tells whoppers about the rank of his courses and their worth (declaring that every one of them is worth $50 million), and tramples the etiquette of the game (driving on greens doesn't help). Trump doesn't brag so much, though, about the golf contractors he stiffs, the course neighbors he intimidates, or the way his golf decisions wind up infecting his political ones. For Trump, it's always about winning. To do it, he uses the tricks he picked up from the hustlers at the public course where he learned the game as a college kid, and then polished as one of the most bombastic businessmen of our time. As Reilly writes, "Golf is like bicycle shorts. It reveals a lot about a man." Commander in Cheat "paints a side-splitting portrait of a congenital cheater" (Esquire), revealing all kinds of unsightly truths Trump has been hiding.

“There are two ways to win a golf tournament. The golfing way or the Taliban way, i.e. either shoot the lowest score or shoot the rest of the field dead. The second is easier, but that is not a choice for you and me. In life, you always have the power to choose which ball to play, and that makes all the difference.”Both golf and life must be productive and fun. This book is all about ‘How does one do it?’.After four decades on the golf course and six of life, I could describe both as a combination of great, good, bad and ugly. I believe it would be no different for most. I realise, while that won’t change too much, they can be fun, no matter what. It's all up to you.When you miss a three-foot putt or misjudge a chip, you tell yourself, “Oh shit, I should have done that rather than this.” And, when you play the same shot well the second time, you say, “Any fool can do it the second time.”Alas, we get just one chance to live. A lot of people do not get it right and wish they had lived differently. This book shares in a lighter vein, things that would make your golf and life more fun and more purposeful. Golf is not a hole in one place and life is not a sprint; both are full of intangibles. Neither is the fairway a level playing surface nor is life. Yet, some excel more often than others. Of those, some seem to enjoy the grind and some do not. And, that is not about talent alone.This book derives life’s lessons from golf. It covers varied aspects covered in five Parts and 19 Holes. It also includes brief, life-changing aspects of self-development and leadership, subjects on which I have written five books that continue to transform lives. While Part IV is on leadership, Part V deals with Kay El’s resolution to make a difference in society for the better, Ekla Chalo re. Paradoxically, this book is both hilarious and serious at the same time. Like the greens, the business end is serious, but the walk through the fairways is fun and energising. It guarantees a chuckle and helps you become a smarter and a happier version of yourself. You have just one life, make sure it is fun, no matter what.
