The Inside Story of the Real President Trump, by His Former Attorney and Personal Advisor—The Man Who Helped Get Him Into the Oval Office

Once Donald Trump’s fiercest surrogate, closest confidant, and staunchest defender, Michael Cohen knows where the skeletons are buried.

This is the most devastating business and political horror story of the century. As Trump’s lawyer and “fixer,” Cohen not only witnessed firsthand but was also an active participant in the inner workings of Trump’s business empire, political campaign, and presidential administration.

This is a story that you have not read in newspapers, or on social media, or watched on television. These are accounts that only someone who worked for Trump around the clock for over a decade—not a few months or even a couple of years—could know. Cohen describes Trump’s racist rants against President Barack Obama, Nelson Mandela, and Black and Hispanic people in general, as well as the cruelty, humiliation, and abuse he leveled at family and staff. Whether he’s exposing the fact that Trump engaged in tax fraud by inflating his wealth or electronic fraud by rigging an online survey, or outing Trump’s Neanderthal views towards women or his hush-money payments to clandestine lovers, Cohen pulls no punches.

He shows Trump’s relentless willingness to lie, exaggerate, mislead, or manipulate. Trump emerges as a man without a soul—a man who courts evangelicals and then trashes them, panders to the common man, but then rips off small business owners, a con man who will do or say absolutely anything to win, regardless of the cost to his family, his associates, or his country.

At the heart of Disloyal, we see how Cohen came under the spell of his charismatic "Boss" and, as a result, lost all sense of his moral compass.

The real "real" Donald Trump who permeates these pages—the racist, sexist, homophobic, lying, cheating President—will be discussed, written about, and analyzed for years to come.

Disloyal: A Memoir - Michael Cohen Book Reviews (509)


Revealing!4 star

Although Mr. Cohen does have some credibility issues, he fully admits this in the book and acknowledges and apologizes for his previous transgressions. I have no problem believing most of what he writes about our President as I’ve heard it corroborated by several other sources. A revealing look into the world of our incompetent, ignorant, and corrupt President. 45


A different kind of Historian5 star

[R]emember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins. — James 5:20 What a brutally realistic portrait of a 21st century ogre you have painted Michael. I have a hard time digesting so much BS you have willingly submitted yourself to in all those years! Please write more, I will keep buying all your yarns, as long as you are honest and repentant. Bless you. 55

Vote Trump out 2020!


This book is a must read. The best book I’ve read on Trump so far. Could not put it down. However I’ve known that Trump was garbage way back around 1980 when I first saw him on TV. I just immediately knew he was a cheap, lying conman, crook, misogynist, selfish pig. An ego maniac with an inferiority complex. I knew he raped and groped women and possibly underage girls. I don’t know how I knew all of this but it came to me that first time I saw him and heard his BS. 55

Lt read


Don’t waste your money. Not a trump tell all. he let trump abuse him. And still did his vulgar,cheating lying and stealing Trump threw him under the bus. Otherwise. He’d still be doing it Cohen was a fool. And as much as I thought I’d feel sorry for him. I don’t He did trumps dirty work and told lies until the days trump stopped paying his attorney. He was a crook too. He deserved more jail time. Thesepeople are crazy. Money and power. He didn’t even take up for his 15 yr old daughter when trump hit on her and said nasty things. That’s not much of a man. That’s a coward. 15

Michael Cohen a great family man5 star

I read this as information and entertainment. As I was reading, I realized Michael Cohen paid the ultimate price for power which becomes seductive for so many smart people. I applaud his willingness to share; I am sad for him, his wife, children, parents, and in-laws for all they have endured. I wanted to not believe this but it represents dealing with a a truly narcissistic personality who has no loyalty to anyone but himself. Very sad…God Bless You and family Michael Cohen! 55


The Hand of the King5 star

I didn’t know what to expect but I hadn’t expected what I just read. This is at once a mesmerizing first hand account of the bizarre, morally bankrupt person that is Trump and a deep dive into the pernicious effects of greed and hubris. The book flows from moment to moment, replete with references to back up claims that, at times, border on the fanciful. Anyone interested in how the Trump administration came to be, and more important, sustains itself, should read this book. As one of those precious and rare sources of information, a first hand narrative, Cohen’s book will surely become a primary reference for students and Scholars of this period of US history. 55


TRUTH!5 star

Any 1 Star review is from a Trumpanzee! Great book from a truth teller! 55
