Who is Donald Trump? Even after a yearlong presidential campaign, and constant media coverage, many Americans don’t know if he’s for real or just a businessman turned showman turned politician who has become President of the United States. His path to the White House, from early childhood through the 2016 campaign and Election are laid bare in Trump This! The Life And Times of Donald Trump: An Unauthorized Biography written by New York Times Bestselling Author Marc Shapiro. Bringing insight into the psychology and motivation of Donald Trump was the equivalent of solving a mystery. What guides Trump to the decisions he makes? Is his personality real or just a caricature driven smokescreen? Is he the living embodiment of a brand or does a heart and soul lurk beneath his flamboyant and often-bullying exterior? In answering those questions many heretofore unknown facts came to life. Trump’s grandfather ran brothels during The Gold Rush years. His father allegedly ran with The Ku Klux Klan. Trump punched out a teacher in the second grade. Trump lived a wild, sexually charged life at Studio 54. The true story of how Trump avoided the draft. The affair that wrecked his first marriage. Why Trump sued a man because he had the same last name. His biggest business successes and failures. If you only discovered Donald Trump with the television show The Apprentice or with his race for President of the United States, the chances are you think you know quite a bit about Donald Trump. But the reality is that, like all larger than life personalities, Trump has cultivated his public image well. He’s been selective in what he’s let out and, when pressed, he’s been quick to deny. Trump This! The Life And Times of Donald Trump: An Unauthorized Biography has dug deep into the truth that is Donald Trump. And this is what we’ve found.

“The Tragically Hip… the soundtrack our lives.” – Justin Trudeau On August 20th, 2016 11.7 million Canadians stood transfixed, watching the final concert of The Tragically Hip, and the rest of the world asked, “Who is this band?” New York Times Bestselling pop journalist Marc Shapiro answers that question in the first American book about this Canadian rock band that largely shunned the spotlight but has become the standard bearer of a resurgent sense of Canadian pride and patriotism. What is Hip? The Life And Times Of The Tragically Hip delves deep beneath the surface of this rock and roll story to discover how a band that spent more than three decades in the rock and roll trenches selling millions of albums and opening for the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Who and Led Zeppelin’s Page & Plant, remained almost unknown outside their home country, even as they rose to the level of rock royalty in Canada. What Is Hip: The Life And Times Of The Tragically Hip reveals: • The behind the scenes story of how the band took over The Horseshoe Tavern and made it their own • How a high up political personality was instrumental in landing the band their manager • The day-to-day, often unforgiving, spirit-grinding days of life on the road in Canada • The ins and outs of opening for three of the biggest groups in the history of rock and roll The Tragically Hip are not cartoon rockers. They are real men who live by their creativity and their principles. Through extensive research and a couple of well-placed sources, author Marc Shapiro has put together a complete look at The Tragically Hip’s rise: from their humble Kingston, Ontario roots, to endless tours, to their internal struggles to keep their music fresh, to the fanatic loyalty they fostered in millions of Canadian fans. These fans shed more than a few tears when it was announced that singer Gord Downie had been diagnosed with brain cancer, and that The Hip were about to embark on what might be their final tour. Marc Shapiro is the author of more than 75 books. His most recent releases include Trump This! The Life And Times Of Donald Trump and Hey Joe: The Unauthorized Biography Of A Rock Classic. When he is not working, which is rare, he can usually be found mowing the lawn, taking out the trash and walking the dog.

The song Hey Joe was a momentary blip on the pop music scene in 1965 courtesy of a Southern California band called The Leaves. It would be their only hit. But over the next 50 plus years, the quirky song about premeditated murder went on to become something special, a musical rite of passage for the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Patti Smith, Led Zeppelin and countless others. It was a perennial that any teen band worth their limited chops coveted and recorded and finally it was an entry in The Guinness Book of World Records when thousands of people got together to play the song as the ultimate jam. Part, history, part mystery and part memoir, the book Hey Joe: The Unauthorized Biography of a Rock Classic by New York Times bestselling author Marc Shapiro is, through extensive and exhaustive research that included the memories of countless well known musicians who were part of the Hey Joe odyssey, a detailed look at the history of Hey Joe, the song that few have ever thought to think deeply about and the rumors, legends and outlandish tales surrounding the song that ultimately culminate in the ultimate question… Hey Joe, where you going with that gun in your hand? In Hey Joe: The Unauthorized Biography of a Rock Classic readers will learn… The family tree of songs that spanned decades and finally spawned Hey Joe. Who actually wrote the song? How close Hendrix came to not recording Hey Joe. The mystery of who actually recorded the first version of Hey Joe. No it was not The Leaves. Would you believe Kim Fowley? Or The Surfaris? What a very young Bruce Springsteen had to do with the song. Nearly 3000 versions of Hey Joe, familiar, obscure and, in many cases, downright impossible to find, have been recorded and released.

Lost and Found, the autobiography of N.Y. Times best-selling author Micky Neilson, a 20 year-veteran of the World of Warcraft franchise, is The Glass Castle meets Of Dice and Men. Lost and Found: An Autobiography of Discovering Family, is the harrowing and inspirational memoir of the successful contributor to World of Warcraft and N.Y. Times best-seller Micky Neilson, who was kidnapped by his schizophrenic father as a toddler, spending his earliest years on the run and his teenage years as a foster child. This autobiography chronicles Micky’s experience serving in the first Gulf War, the meteoric rise of Blizzard Entertainment and, most triumphantly, his reuniting with the family that was stolen from him as a child. “No one who reads my fiction today or plays the video games I've contributed to knows that I was kidnapped at eight months old, that I grew up with a schizophrenic father, that I didn't attend school until 7th grade, or that I never knew my true identity until I was reunited with my family after 38 years,” said the author. “It's such an honor to finally be able to share my life story.”

Lost Tycoon presents an unvarnished, in-depth portrayal of the man who vows to "Make America Great Again." Although it was first published in 1993, Lost Tycoon shows us that The Donald's personal character, political philosophy, business ethics, and attitude towards women haven't changed much in the past two decades.Trump is a man of many lives, and many wives. He is arguably the greatest self-promoter in the annals of American business. After inheriting a fortune, he made and lost billions in real estate and casino gambling, rising phoenix-like from his own ashes. He is a reality television show star, a father, a grandfather, and an alleged rapist. In Hollywood terms, he has literally been the producer and director of his own biopic--a real life "Citizen Kane," whose father hammered the same lines into his head when was a little boy: "You are a killer . . . you are a king . . . you are a killer . . .you are a king."Harry Hurt has created a cinema verité-style narrative that allows the words and actions of the principals to speak for themselves. It is indisputable that Donald's exploits in business, entertainment, and politics prove that he is--to borrow a metaphor from Fred Trump Sr.--"a killer." Reading this important biography about the real Donald Trump will help you to make an informed and engaged choice as to whether he is worthy of being "king."

‘정치의 죽음’에서 태어난 불사조 도널드 트럼프는 미국 보수주의에 대한 위협인가? ‘정치의 죽음’에서 탄생한 트럼프 현상 강준만 교수가 미국 공화당 대선 후보 도널드 트럼프에 대해 전면 해부했다. 트럼프의 출생과 성장부터 부동산업과 방송 활동, 공화당 후보로서의 활약까지 우리가 알지 못했던 ‘인간 트럼프’에 대해 흥미진진한 이야기들을 펼친다. 아울러 온갖 막말과 기행(奇行)에도 무너지지 않는 ‘트럼프 현상’에 대해 집중 분석한다. 강준만 교수는 트럼프에 대해 “다른 정치인 같았으면 무너져도 수십 번 무너졌을 무지막지한 발언을 해놓고서도 사과는커녕 오히려 자신이 옳다고 큰소리를 쳐대는데도 무사할 뿐만 아니라 오히려 인기가 올라가는 사람, 이 정도면 ‘불사신(不死身)’이라고 표현하는 게 옳을 것 같다”고 말한다. 그렇다면 트럼프가 승승장구해온 이유는 무엇일까? 강준만 교수는 가장 큰 원인으로 ‘정치의 죽음’을 말한다. “트럼프가 정치를 죽인 게 아니라, 그는 이미 이루어진 ‘정치의 죽음’이라는 잿더미에서 태어난 불사조”라는 것이다. 미국인들은 공화당과 민주당의 차이를 펩시콜라와 코카콜라의 차이 정도로 여기는데, 이는 미국 정치가 ‘엘리트 대 비(非)엘리트’의 구도에 있다고 생각하기 때문에 기성 정치권 밖의 트럼프가 강력한 대안으로 부상했다고 분석한다. 더욱이 미국인들의 정치 냉소와 혐오는 극에 달해 있다. 강준만 교수에 의하면, 기성 정치는 곪아 있는 사회적 문제들의 존재를 인정하지 않으려 하고, 그걸 까발리려는 사람에겐 그 방법론만을 물고 늘어진다. 왜 그럴까? 정치의 역할은 문제 해결이 아니라는 걸 인정하고 체념하기 때문이다. 사실 모두가 다 알고 있는 공개된 비밀이다. 그렇기에 그 비밀을 아무리 떠들어대고 공격해대도 그 누구도 주목하지 않는다. 트럼프는 아주 고약한 방법으로 그 비밀을 까발리며 나섰고, 그래서 세상의 주목을 받은 건 물론 광범위한 지지까지 누리게 된 것이다.
