Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump lays out his professional and personal worldview in this classic work - a firsthand account of the rise of America's foremost deal maker.
"I like thinking big. I always have. To me it's very simple: If you're going to be thinking anyway, you might as well think big." (Donald J. Trump)
Here is Trump in action - how he runs his organization and how he runs his life - as he meets the people he needs to meet, chats with family and friends, clashes with enemies, and challenges conventional thinking. But even a maverick plays by rules, and Trump has formulated time-tested guidelines for success. He isolates the common elements in his greatest accomplishments; he shatters myths; he names names, spells out the zeros, and fully reveals the deal maker's art. And throughout, Trump talks - really talks - about how he does it. Trump: The Art of the Deal is an unguarded look at the mind of a brilliant entrepreneur - the ultimate listen for anyone interested in the man behind the spotlight.

"Trump makes one believe for a moment in the American dream again." (The New York Times)
"Donald Trump is a deal maker. He is a deal maker the way lions are carnivores and water is wet." (Chicago Tribune)
"Fascinating...wholly absorbing...conveys Trump's larger-than-life demeanor so vibrantly that the reader's attention is instantly and fully claimed." (Boston Herald)
"Great way to understand who he is"
I have been considering him for my vote for president, and I wanted to better understand the guy before he was as famous as he is now!!
I completely recommend this book because it deeply goes into the process of building and land development. Read this book!!!
Great story about patience and never settling for less than what you want. I like how he never jumped into a deal to fast he had several steps he would make before getting completely involved in anything.
"interesting, especially now that he is running fu"
the media LOVES to create their own narrative about people running for office. for me, this was a great way to get to know trump from 30 years ago, and then juxtapose how he was portrayed during the republican national convention. it's worth the read.
Trump does the intro, reader sounds a lot like him. Finished faster than I expected.
The book is a bio to around 1987, when it was originally released. It's also got thumbnail sketches of a lot of his projects from his point of view. Listening to it makes you realize that to make big bucks, you have to know what you're doing.
Fascinating inside look at guys who build skyscrapers, especially for a guy like me that never put together a bigger deal than buying a home.
"learned a new side of Trump"
makes me want him in the white house even more making great deals and making America great again
"great way to learn about Trump! Trump 2016"
loved it Ttump is a great American! This book explains why government is so inefficient which is why someone like Trump is able to gain so much traction in the 2016 election people are sick of government living high on the Hog on our tax dollars while doing very little in return
"The next President"
This was a great book by the future president. This man is clearly pasoniate and great American. A hard worker and tough bussinessman he doesn't accept anything but perfection.
so awesome. I am so happy audible finally has this program I really wanted to hear this book and now it's finally on Audible
I thoroughly enjoyed this personal account by Donald Trump. It's as relevant today as it was when it was written.
"This is who Trump was 30 years ago"
It is sobering to read this and hear the events he is describing in here as being last week occur more than 3 decades ago. The book has a good tone, offers good vibes and is an overall a good read written by a real estate developer going thru hard times by chronically get his past successes. Now if the stories in here are actually true is a matter of diving to actual untainted sources of history, aside from this book.
I was hoping for more in depth business advice rather than story. This book is mainly story telling about Donald's life, while interesting there really wasn't a whole lot to learn in terms of the 'Art of making Deals'
"The Real Donald Trump"
The tale we are told in the UK by the press is that Donald Trump isn't a real businessman but just someone who was simply a beneficiary of a rich dad. This very enjoyable book gives the lie to all that and if you want to know what makes Donald Trump tick I strongly encourage you to read "The Art of the Deal"
"If you think, you well might think big!"
What an excellent story of a Great mind! Lot of good learning!. . .
