New York Times bestseller

An Esquire Pick of Most Anticipated Books of 2019

The Week Magazine Pick of Books to Read in 2019

An uproarious indictment of Donald Trump's lying, cheating, and poor sportsmanship--by the bestselling author and acclaimed sportswriter.

Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump is an on-the-ground and behind-the-scenes look at Trump's ethics deficit on and off the course. Reilly will transport readers onto the golf course 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.

Reilly has been with Trump on the fairway, the green, and in the weeds, and has seen first-hand 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 experience with Trump 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 off it.

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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Relying on testimony from playing partners, caddies, and former Trump employees, 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…P.G. Wodehouse would have approved.” New Yorker
“Reilly paints a side-splitting portrait of a congenital cheater.” Esquire
“Assails Trump’s ‘ethics deficit.’” Associated Press
“Sportswriting can be a lens into any part of our culture, and [Commander in Cheat] proves my point…a clever way to make sense of White House chaos.” Week
“How golf explains life and reveals character, particularly when the golfer under consideration is Donald Trump…Since Reilly takes golf more seriously than politics, making ‘golf terrible again’ is the worst sin of all, but it’s one that explains so many others.” Kirkus Reviews
