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.

An idiot surrounded by clowns. It is worse than you can imagine. The art of the scam. And those who have been had will hang on the hardest to the lie.

BEWARE OF THE MODERN DAY BOOKBURNERS

First they came with their negative comments (clearly most NOT having read the book)
Then they will come after those that read the book
And then...

If you have even a passing interest in presidential politics this is a worthwhile read. It helped me better understand his negotiating style. Agree or disagree with his politics he has been very effective so far in achieving his real objectives.

The most successful people I have ever know or learned about have failed often and learned from their experiences. Trump is no different. Biggest losers are AFRAID to take risks and resort to putting others down. SMH

Upon reading this book, one gains insight on how Donald Trump provides his experiences on how to make deals in obtaining permission to begin construction projects and how to deal with the those who are skeptical on getting it done. He also provides knowledge on how to deal with those who take it upon themselves to prevent both the deal and the construction project from being completed. Anyone who wants to learn on how to create a service and keep it running and successful should definitely read this book.

Trump is a winner; this is why we so desperately needed him after the abject loser that preceded him--the shoe-shine boy in a shiny suit. Trump has been beating such losers all his life and this book describes that.

Now I know how to bankrupt a casino. Sad.

And big time wrestling is real. Kudos to his ghost writer for making it sound somewhat Trumpian without being genuinely incoherent. Reading this was like swallowing uncoated aspirin without water.

HE IS FANTASTIC. I HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING HIM FOR YEARS. HIS INFO. ENCOURAGED ME TO SELL R.E. ON A BIKE AND BECOME TOPS IN SALES FOR MY OFFICE.

HIS STRATIGES TAUGHT ME TO OVERCOME MY HANDICAPS AND FOLLOW MY HEART TO SUCCESS.

THANK YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR SHARING YOUR KNOWLEGE HONESTLY.
