Publisher's Summary

President-elect 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 read for anyone interested in the man behind the spotlight.

    "A glimpse at the man who'd become president."

    As a Trump supporter I felt it wise of me to learn more about the man I intended to vote for. This book answered many questions and provided me with knowledge that helped me combat the propaganda and anti-Trump rhetoric. The conclusion of this book adequately clarifies the motivations behind Trump's presidential aspirations.

    "Makes sense"

    If you vote for or against him, this will help explain the how and why he acts the way he does. This is clearly a man that sees angles that most others miss. He's the john Holmes of business.

    I think the ice skating rink chapter was the best! It shows how incompetent government is at getting things done.

    If you could sum up Trump: The Art of the Deal in three words, what would they be?

    Classic Trump


    Any additional comments?

    Trump makes several points in the book that he is saying in 2016. Very consistent. Some of the things DNC or Clintons have attacked on he already explained in detail here! LOL. busted

    Donald Trump is an American original. This book shows Trump has held consistent views throughout his life and yet grew in his views as he matured.

    "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 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.

    Story
    "Dear Donald, I love you. Love Donald - summary"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - absolutely great listen to the person who will the next President of the USA.


    What other book might you compare Trump: The Art of the Deal to, and why?

    Trumped - by Jack O'Connell - a former employee of Trump working at Trump Plaza- gives an alternative perspective of the book - definitively listen to this (available on Audible) after listening to Art of The Deal. Also I am currently listening to the "Making of Trump" also available on Audible.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The way Trump described and managed the Ice Rink in NY City


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No. But it gave me insight on Trump - he writes this book to build his public persona- essentially that he is great.


    Any additional comments?

    The originally story behind this book was that Trump in the 80s wanted to do a bio of himself. The co-author convinced him that rather than that, do a book about a typical week in his life (his bio would not be interesting) - which the book is essentially how he does business and what he does on a day to day basis. Interesting, however, like every good story the Hero should have a flaw - unfortunately Trump is apparently flawless. It would have been good to hear about some of his greatest failures - often having a more deeper impact learning lesson, than one's success. I would describe the book as a "Love Letter" Trump wrote to himself. There are a few good business points, but if u want to know how to become a Millionaire - listen to the "Millionaire Next Door" or Robert Kiyosaki Rich Dad Poor Dad "Financial IQ" and finally Felix Dennis "How to be Rich".

    If you are looking for good business pointers - this is not the book. If you want to have some insight into Donald's character than this book with a critical eye gives u some insight. I also recommend as above Trumped by Jack O'Connell.

    "Interesting"

    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"
