This book chronicles, with dazzling photographs and a provocative text, the construction of one of New York City's most unusual and controversial skyscrapers, from the moment the idea entered Donald Trump's head to the party celebrating the completion of the top floor. In between are fire, death, deals, the destruction of two important Art Deco sculptures, demonstrations, dozens of headlines, hundreds of millions of dollars and many years of meticulous, exasperating and dangerous work by the thousands of people who put it all together.
