Trump and journalist Tony Schwartz. Part memoir and part business-advice book, it was the first book credited to Trump,  and helped to make him a "household name". He cited it as one of his proudest accomplishments and his second-favorite book after the Bible. Schwartz called writing the book his "greatest regret in life, without question," and both he and the book's publisher, Howard Kaminsky , said that Trump had played no role in the actual writing of the book.
Trump has personally given conflicting accounts on the question of authorship. The book talks about Trump's childhood in Jamaica Estates, Queens.
