Publisher's Summary

Political satire as deeper truth: Donald Trump's presidential memoir, as recorded by two world-renowned Trump scholars and experts on greatness generally.

"I have the best words, beautiful words, as everybody has been talking and talking about for a long time. Also? The best sentences and, what do you call them, paragraphs. My previous books were great and sold extremely, unbelievably well - even the ones by dishonest, disgusting so-called journalists. But those writers didn't understand Trump, because, quite frankly, they were major losers. People say if you want it done right you have to do it yourself, even when 'it' is a 'memoir'. So every word of this book was written by me, using a special advanced word processing system during the many, many nights I've been forced to stay alone in the White House - only me, just me, trust me, nobody helped. And it's all 100 percent true, so true - people are already saying it may be the truest book ever published. Enjoy."

Until Donald Trump publishes the ultimate account of his entire four or eight or one and a half years in the White House, the definitive chronicle will be You Can't Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story of My Fantastic First Year as President Donald J. Trump. Trump was elected because he was the most frank presidential candidate in history, a man eager to tell the unvarnished truth about others' flaws and tout his own amazing excellence. Now he levels his refreshingly compulsive, un-PC candor at his landslide election victory as well as his role as commander in chief and leader of the free world.

There are intimate, powerful, mind-boggling revelations throughout. You are there with him during his private encounters with world leaders, a few of whom he does not insult. You are there at the genius Oval Office strategy sessions with his advisers. You are there in his White House bedroom as he crafts the predawn Twitter pronouncements that rock the world. And, of course, you are there on the golf course as Trump attempts to manage the burdens of his office.

President Trump explains each of the historic decisions that have already made America great again and how he always triumphs over the fake news media. You'll learn what he really thinks of his cabinet members and top aides not related to him, of the first lady and the first daughter and the additional three or four Trump children.

You Can't Spell America Without Me is presented by America's foremost Trump scholar, Kurt Andersen, as well as America's foremost mediocre Trump impersonator, Alec Baldwin.

Great idea for a short read, not enough for a book

The idea is cute, the narration is good--but there isn't enough here to sustain a full length book. After and hour or two, one can only be depressed and it is hard to go on.

Not worth you money

I love Alec. I've loved everyone of his books. This one was a waste of time. I was disappointed that about 1/2 through the he has someone Kurt narrate the book. I thought it would be funny. Nope, not at all. This book was a bad idea for me and for Alec.

Wise words "Something, something, something"!

I am not a SNL watcher however decided to buy this book on a whim. Regardless of one's politics in order to enjoy this I think that putting them aside is recommended. There were several chapters that I laughed so hard that my coffee would come shooting out of my nose.

Some of the humor is sarcastic, some is cruel but some is just down right hilarious. Here we have a President who has a a General that he likes, really likes. He calls him General 'Sissy! This POTUS makes agreements with world leaders with a 'pinky swear'! He finds the office of Commander in Chief a little boring so he likes to keep it exciting by writing songs as well as running the country.

This President also defers from alcohol but prefers a snack of bacon and Ovaltine (YUCK!) Whereas his son in law, Jared enjoys carrots and tea. Talking of Jarod, this President has become well versed in all Jewish traditions. One of which is Shaboom which runs for a twenty-four hour period every week starting sundown on Friday night. He calls it Jewish prison! Of course who can forget 'Shamozal, the day of Atonement!

This Commander takes supplements so that he can have those 'special' Superman feelings.

How anyone cannot think that this book is not funny I just do not know! Thought that it was very clever and true escapism. Worth the read.

Not narrated by Alec Baldwin entirely

He narrates the first few chapters, then says he is tired and only comes back the last couple of chapters. In the remainder of the book, two men who get progressively worse at Trump voices narrate.

Baldwin plus others

Alec Baldwin only reads about a third of the book, however, the other narrators are fine. Pretty entertaining.

Fantastic narration, educational and grating

I went into this book expecting a 10 hr long SNL bit, but it took itself reasonably seriously and I learned some things along the way that I did not know. I did find it hard to get thru the book given the subject matter but it was very well written and very well narrated.

Thank you

Baldwin should have performed all of this book!

The other narrators tried, but this material only works if read by a Trump impersonator.

it was good half way through

but became monotonous as is the president. I did not like the 3 different actors read the story, Alec Baldwin should have read the who book.
I was unable to finish the book.

Nice and Funny

At first glance, I thought that this was to criticize Mr. Trump but then I realized that it is a comedy.
