- “Citizen Cohn,” Nicholas Von Hoffman’s biography of Roy Cohn.
- “Don’t Mess With Roy Cohn,” a brilliant Ken Auletta piece in Esquire magazine written almost four decades ago.
- “TrumpNation,” an investigative biography by my Bloomberg View colleague Timothy L. O’Brien.
- “The Art of the Deal,” Trump’s first book.
- Jane Mayer’s New Yorker article last year about the remorse felt today by Trump’s ghostwriter, Tony Schwartz.
