    1. Gwenda Blair s approach to the three generations of Trumps similar to that of how Robert Caro dealt with LBJ, fair and even handed In my opinion she goes a step further by putting each situation told in historical perspective, and explaining the laws, rules, and economics surrounding business decisions made by all three men The copy I read was published in 2000 and I do not know if there has been an update, so the intervening period isn t covered Half of the book is spent on the father and grand [...]

    2. This book is an excellent place to start if one hopes to learn about the new president of the United States and his background.It covers the history of Frederick, the grandfather, from his early life in, and departure from Germany, through his arrival in New York to his time in Seattle and following the gold rush into the Yukon as an entrepreneur providing for the housing and recreational needs of the miners The chapter covering the difficulties experienced in getting from Seattle to the gold f [...]

    3. I ll very briefly say that, in order to post this review, I had to claim to have finished the book THAT said, I read large sections of it, focusing on different generations of the Trump family I have no hesitation in saying this is a very solid multi generational biography The writing is clear, the author is perceptive and it is, in fact, very illuminating.It must also be pointed out that it was published sixteen years ago, in 2000 The phenomenon of Donald Trump s insurgency is not foreshadowed [...]

    4. The author has done a really good job consolidating the details of three generations of the Trump family It s really good to see how the family s Puritan values of hard work, thrift and discipline at least in the first two generations helped the family move up the social ladder.In my opinion, the author has presented much detailed view of the older Trumps much than Donald himself The older Trumps society and the context in which the made their choices and decisions were very clearly put togeth [...]

    5. From Granpa Trump, to papa Fred, to Donald we get a history of how the Trumps arrived and thrived in America Donald s grandfather started many businesses upon his arrival here and joined the Gold Rush out West Not as a speculator but as an inn keeper providing food, shelter, liquor and women to te speculators It s kind of what Donald does now with the casinos Fred Trump s rise as a real estate developer is well documented and shows that he did not get to that high level of wealth without governm [...]

    6. This well written expose of three generations of Trumps prove the old saw that an apple doesn t fall very far from the tree It seems that Donald Trump s grandfather immigrated to the United States from Germany and began by setting up a restaurant from which he hocked alcohol and prostitutes.It s so often stated in the news that many people support Donald Trump because of his business acumen, thinking that it will then apply to running government efficiently But if his history in business is any [...]

    7. Such a fascinating read Incredibly relevant, seeing as Donald Trump is now the president Published in 2000, the book doesn t have a political skew nor anything about the last 17 years , and gives a good, in depth with references and citations history of Friedrich, Fred, and Donald Trump Read it.

    8. A very gentle handling of DJT and his family history I read the published in 2000 edition The pre Trump as politician version so I was left with his presidential style is no surprise all was foretold, if you looked and thought Nuff said
