President 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.

Liberals hate America.

💸 This is a book everyone can afford to be without.

I've read the book. It's simplistic, untruthful, boastful and full of self-promotion. It ended where his businesses began to fall like dominoes - but that's not in the book.

To see his "art of dealing" in practice, watch a documentary titled "You've been Trumped" (I've just returned the video to the library and written a review).

trump supporters are the enemy of America. They have tried and failed at their pathetic coup. Go back to your holes and stay there now that cheeto jesus is nothing but a washed up loser.

MMTerry:

Your comments about people with autism and developmental delays are offensive.

Not sure I should take advice from someone who is such a bad business man.

BTW... most of the negative comments on this book review are from people who have never actually READ the book... so keep that in mind. On the surface, this simplistic style of writing can be easily passed over. The true gold is in rereading it several times with wisdom, experience, and applying those principles to life and business settings. It takes a real intellectual desire and worldly maturity to fully understand and appreciate this book. Of course, if the reader does not have that... there is always... Saul David Alinsky.

This book gave me a greater understanding of our President.

1. He is patient
2. He understands politicians
3. He is a smart businessman
4. He is generous
5. He loves his family and America
6. He is street smart and brilliant
7. He sees the big picture
8. He is flexible

As others have commented about the 1 star ratings, many didn't read the entire book.
