Commander in Cheat (Hachette Books, 2019, hb. $28) is an uproarious indictment of Donald Trump’s lying, cheating, and poor sportsmanship by the bestselling author and acclaimed sportswriter. Rick Reilly has been with Trump on the fairway and in the rough. He’s seen first-hand how the president plays and it’s not pretty. Through interviews with dozens of pros, developers, partners, opponents, and caddies, Reilly takes a deep and hilarious look at how Trump shamelessly cheats at golf, lies about it, sues over it, bullies with it, and profits off it.

Rick Reilly is a screenwriter, author, and journalist. He was voted National Sportswriter of the Year 11 times over a career that began in 1979. Long known for the back page “Life of Reilly” column for Sports Illustrated, Reilly moved to ESPN in 2008.

USA Today has called Reilly the closest thing sportswriting ever had to a rock star. The New York Daily News described him as one of the funniest humans on the planet. Three times his columns have been read into the record in the U.S. Congress. An astronaut once took his signed trading card into space.

Reilly is the founder of the anti-malaria effort Nothing But Nets, which has raised over $60 million to hang mosquito nets over kids in Africa, where 2,000 children die every day of the disease. He is the author of 13 books.

Doors open at 6 pm for a cash bar happy hour, and dinner is served at 7 pm.
