Trump reveals the business secrets that have made him 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 business and how he runs his life—as he meets the people he needs to meet, chats with family and friends, clashes with enemies, and changes the face of the New York City skyline. But even a maverick plays by rules, and Trump has formulated eleven guidelines for success. He isolates the common elements in his greatest deals; 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 and an unprecedented education in the practice of deal-making. It’s the most streetwise business book there is—and the ultimate read for anyone interested in achieving money and success, and knowing the man behind the spotlight.

From a business perspective, there are some interesting negotiation and sales techniques that are pragmatic, useful, and worth considering. From a personality perspective, Donald Trump’s current approach to life and relationships is not much different from the Donald Trump of 30 years ago. From a political perspective, it is interesting to view his perspective as an outsider in the 1980’s juxtaposed with those in his current role.Regardless of whether you want to praise him or criticize him, this book is an insightful and great read.

An amazing insight into the strategies of business from a successful man. I cannot believe I took so many years to read this! Trump sometimes comes across as an abrasive personality, and certainly since he has become President, his clashes with the media are legendary. However, if you read this book, you really get to know something about him, and he is consistent today as he was back when he wrote this. In fact the man went through a lot since he first published this book, and overcame tremendous obstacles in doing so.After reading this book, I became even more confident that the US economy is going to continue to improve as it has done in his first year in office, especially with the incredible trend of the DOW Industrial average.  

If you really want some insight into who Trump is, and how he operates and the way he works, then this is a must read. It is no surprise to me that this book has been a best seller. Anyone who wants to raise the bar on their own real estate investments and are looking for wisdom and courage on how to be successful can learn a great deal from this book.

I have no doubt, I will be reading this one again and again. It is brilliant.

By far one of the finer books I have ever read. One of the more unique aspects I found enjoyable in the book was the authenticity and the practical component of it. Many people get rich by making a tape on which they spread cliche business advice. Donald J. Trump pursued opportunity and the American Dream in the real world and then wrote this book to share both his journey and the insight he gained along the way. Truly a fantastic book to gain valuable information to attack and WIN deals. A book that is sure to improve your life.

There are two possible ways of reading this book:1. Like it was originally meant to be in 1987, a business book by a very successful entrepreneuer and businessman, part autobiography, part advice.  

2. From the point of view 2017, where Trump makes a fool of himself more often than not and has crossed over to the side he so loves criticize in this book: the politicans.

If you chose:

Option 1, you will be surprised by how he describes his style of working, and I have to say he comes across as not too bad. Yes, he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but he has turned it into a platinum one with hard work and being in the right spot at the right time. In 1987, he was at the top of his game, an absolute superstar, and this book teaches us why.

Option 2: This book is a manual on how to read the president. After this, I can honestly say that I think the Donald Trump we see in the media is the real Donald Trump. The only problem is, that what works as the CEO of a company and in worst case will turn you into a “bad developer” or “media hungry shark” will not go down well with people if you are the godd**n president of the United States. Case in point: In the book he describes how he gives an architecture critic a piece of his mind by way of letter after the Trump Tower has received a bad review by him. “My people keep telling me I shouldn’t do this, but he has stated his opinion, so I am going to give him mine.” Ergo: Twitter rants.

I found the book incredibly insightful and easy to read. IMO all the negative reviews here criticize the person, not the book.

There was a time when all I knew of Donald Trump was what I read in Bloom County. Ah, the 80s. It was the epoch of this book which likely turned an ambitious and wealthy man with an interest in real estate, a man who negotiates hard, one of many, into a national icon.By now I’ve watched more than my share of Trump rallies on YouTube, and something I didn’t expect to find is today’s presidential candidate is largely the same man speaking in this book. He does deals. He manipulates the media. He has a beyond healthy ego. He doesn’t back down from a fight. He uses politicians. He trusts his own judgement above all.  

It’s an entertaining read in the same way Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story is entertaining. Slightly more business oriented, but entertaining.
