"Did you read his book?"
"Did you read my book?"
No on all counts. While I respect the written word in the form of books, I actually never grew into heading out to purchase books from authors (beyond textbooks and noted credible writers , eg. Stephen Covey as an example) simply based on exhortation to buy "my book."
Why do so many believe books are developed with the only intent to purvey messages while "truth-telling?" History is laden with books laced with outright lies, in some cases misinformation, and in other cases grievous omissions. Books are written after a basic human mental process which starts with motive. Motive drives us all; the book writer enacts her/his motive with the ultimate behavior: they write or contract someone to ghostwrite a book. Thus, my suspicions more often than not drive me away from books other than the occasional novel. Allow me to offer two glaring and irrefutable examples: Bill O'Reiily's book about the death of Abe Lincoln (loaded with lies) and Denish D'Souza's book regrading President Obama (total lies accompanied by movie productions).
At the risks of offending some, I assert the Bible, in and of itself, is a compilation of the posting and inscribing acts of men over a period of over 100 years. While I make no assertion the Bible is loaded with lies, I certainly suggest it is the product of the male brain and related to perceived sins of their individual times. Full devotion to the Bible (all passage) as a book would be foolish without consideration of exaggeration, metaphorical representations and in some cases maybe ghostwritten (letters).
Did I mention ghostwriting above? I believe so, now let's explore ghostwriting and the current con artist running for president as the leader of the GOP. First, reflect on how the con artist has linked his recently revealed ghostwritten book "Art of the Deal." Fraud!
What happens when the ghostwriters openly speak about his role as the writer of Trump's book? What should happen is a nation should pay attention to yet another con by what could be the world's most prominent con man. We thought we should assist those who may have missed the many confessions of Trump's ghostwriter: Tony Schwartz.
Schwartz has come out with what a rational person can only call tsunami buyer's remorse or severe and chronic cognitive dissonance. The ghostwriter has literally adopted a refrain of, "I am is terrified of Trump in the Oval Office:. Schwartz doesn't hesitate to state he never envisioned Trump running for the highest level of political office.
If you have time, review the following video form various news sources with Schwartz commenting on his role in developing the book. Some segments also include comments regarding the writer's perception of Trump as a person.
The segment (posted below) form a segment of MSNBC's The Last Word. was posted in one minute segment (total of five segments) based on the source of the video. The Last Word segments the shortest of the various news segments. Why did we post so many segments? Each news host added value to exposing Trump's fraud via the manner in which they individually handled their interviews.
The New Yorker offers a detailed read of Schwartz's post Art of the Deal heartburn.
“I put lipstick on a pig,” he said. “I feel a deep sense of remorse that I contributed to presenting Trump in a way that brought him wider attention and made him more appealing than he is.” He went on, “I genuinely believe that if Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes there is an excellent possibility it will lead to the end of civilization.”
If he were writing “The Art of the Deal” today, Schwartz said, it would be a very different book with a very different title. Asked what he would call it, he answered, “The Sociopath.”
