Publisher's Summary

This book almost didn’t see the light of day as government officials tried to bar its publication.

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 this audiobook - the racist, sexist, homophobic, lying, cheating president - will be discussed, written about, and analyzed for years to come.

Buy this book

The narrator does an excellent job- he doesn’t sound like the course Trump sycophant author I feared might be chosen as the reader. Michael Cohen is a liar and a crook— but his story is highly consistent with all of the biographical information I’ve read about Donald Trump. Buy this important book- not to support Michael Cohen, but to assure this information gets out to the public.

Amazing Story

Blew right through this. Our president is such a crook. How can anyone still support this bloated, syphilitic, baked potato of a criminal? How is Donald not in prison for several years? Pray for this country.

A crook, but at least he's honest.

At last, we have someone who can really confirm without question who really is in the white house.

Disloyal:

I got the feeling Mr. Cohen is remorseful. Remorse is one thing but for the actions he was involved with he should feel so. At least he took responsibility for his part in the creation of the worst President we've ever had in our history. If only Trump remains historically the worst President in our history, that will be a good thing. I hope he doesn't get a second term because I don't believe a democratic republic like ours can survive another four more Trump years. Thank you for sharing a needed warning to us and making it apparent how important voting is, our voices really do matter!

Engaging, well-written/edited and shocking

Wow! Wow! Wow! Cohen “knows where all the bodies are,” as they say. He has nothing left to lose, and I believed every word in this book. Every story of how Trump manipulates, breaks the law, cons people, etc. He takes ownership of his dirty deeds and give the reader a behind the scenes of how those dirty deeds came together.

This book should be read by every American before heading to the polls.

Highly recommend this book.

It Takes One to Know One—Sleezballs

Michael Cohen admits to being no better than a gangster lawyer. His lack of scruples is exceeded only by his boss Donald Trump. Oddly, his admission to underhanded, dishonest, and twisted use if the law completely squares with Trump’s history, much of which can be verified by a minimal amount of research.
“Disloyal: A Memoir” is unnerving. It is clear Michael Cohen knows Trump’s worst character flaws. He was the most intimate of enablers.
He knows not only Trump’s darkness, but exposes early details of the Jerry Falwell, Jr. and wife Becky’s scandal.
Cohen reveals the he and all Trump “yes men” are capable of anything to please Donald Trump—until Trump turns on them.
It is a great read—believable and terrifying.

Confirms what we’ve previously heard/read

Interesting insight from Trump’s lawyer.
Insight into family dynamic.
Although the title suggests Cohen has been disloyal to his former boss by writing the book, it is in fact more likely that it is Trump who has been disloyal to him.

Let’s hope the American electorate use their right to vote wisely in November 2020.

A frightening tale, but one that is fascinating

I listened to this book from start to finish in one go. In many ways the author is responsible for enabling the rise of the man who was to become the 45th President. Like all Karmic outcomes he now knows what it feels like to be used and betrayed by someone he believe would look out for him. Cohen does not ask for forgiveness, or even for you to understand his actions, he is however offering a stark warning about the man we know as Donald Trump, his modus operandi and the lengths he will go to for what he wants.....and the extent of revenge he is willing to inflict to those opposing him

Thats Trump ratted out 👍

Great listen. didnt like Cohen before his imprisonment but with time to reflect he can now move on with his life and family.
Just shows what a putrid, disgusting creature Trump is. Pray he loses in November and ends up in Michaels old cell to rot in jail.

Insightful

I couldn’t stop listening, binged it over 2 days! Found the contents really interesting as it filled in a lot of gaps in the Trump/White House story. I was impressed how the author admitted and owned his errors of judgement and could understand how he was sucked into Trumps world of lies and deceit. After doing so much for his boss he was thrown to the wolves and has now paid the price for doing so.

I highly recommend this book, and think the author deserves every penny he is making from this book because he lost so much due to his loyalty to Trump

Detailed account of life with Trump

The narrator was ideally picked for this book. I could sense the emphasis Cohen had placed on certain aspects throughout the book, via his voice. So definitely an easy listen and overall good choice.

Cohen came across candid, honest and detailed about his wrecking ball life as Trump's fixer. Although I couldn't escape the thought that he was white washing some parts of what will certainly be remembered in the future, as a complete s***show of a campaign and administration. Though mostly on his part, as he seems to hold no love for Donald, except for some nostalgia of the early days of his own rise to power.

If anything, this book confirms what others along the lines of: Fire and Fury, Very Stable Genius and A Warning, have already echoed. Trump has no clue, is impulsive and only cares about winning, regardless of the outcomes for others. This is the third time I have heard the sentiment given that Trump didn't expect to win, and played this wholly as an opportunity to get more exposure for his brand.

Please America, vote this clown out of office.

A Story of Redemption?

It's entertaining for a typical story of one over come by a proximity to power and driven by greed to the detriment of all even their own family ... But is this redemption lets hope so. As we will see in the coming months.

Liars if the USA unite

Full confirmation of what non cultish Americans have known happen for years. Trump is a crook of the highest order. Cohen has got what he deserves and I have no sympathy with him. What he did was evil. Feel depressed after reading this

A MUST READ: Michael : Redemption

Kudos to Michael!

Before Michael came clean to congress about his being the 'fixer' in Trump Org. I personally thought he was scum of the earth but, WOW this book is his redemption.

The Alarm Bells are ringing so loudly on this corrupt POTUS.......We must listen to the Alarms.

Worth Listening To

Listened to with a touch of cynicism but found it closely associating and confirmed by other books being touted, of late including Rage by Woodward.
I found Roberts story of how Trump got the winery especially interesting as it reflects what he is currently doing with Tik Tok and his firm belief "He" should get a "Taste", "Kick Up" or juice from extorting Tik Tok management and he insistence he should get the oil in Syria.
Roberts description of Trump's relationship with Putin (Platov) and how Trump envies Putin's ability to get 25% of Russia's worth again is exemplified by the new book Melania & Me by Stephanie Winston Wolkoff in which they both make the same assertions of the Trump family greed and desire.
Robert was thrown under the Bus and as such he is not trying to write a balanced book but in essence, this is an eye-opener that should be read.

Rotten from the top.

How brave. How self interested. How loyal. How sad. How topical for 2020 elections. A must listen / read for everyone interested in the American politics. This mafia gangland story is a testimony that the political scene in the so called fee world must be changed. Surely we are better than this! The world deserves better than this. We owe it to the future of democracy that we are better... and NOW!
