Donald Trump Book Covers, Ranked

• November 3, 2015 1:39 pm


Donald Trump's latest best-selling memoir, Crippled America, hits stores today. The initial reviews are fantastic, like you wouldn't believe. The cover image features a ruthlessly handsome Trump posed pensively, with a touch of agony and fortitude thrown in, characteristics befitting a man who, according to the jacket bio, "is passionate about fixing America." How does it compare to all of the other fabulous Trump book covers? We've ranked the best ones here:

10. The Best Golf Advice I Ever Received (2005)

Half-assed, low-energy, devoid of class.

The classic that started it all.
