From the Impresario of NBC's hit show The Apprentice Trump On Trump: "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." And here's how he does it: the art of the deal. Beginning with a week in Trump's high-stakes life, Trump: The Art of the Deal gives us Trump in action. We see just how he operates day to day-how he runs his business and how he runs his life-as he chats with friends and family, clashes with enemies, efficiently buys up Atlantic City's top casinos, changes the face of the New York City skyline ... and plans the tallest building in the world. Trump On Trump: "I play it very loose. I don't carry a briefcase. I try not to schedule too many meetings. I leave my door open. ... I prefer to come to work each day and just see what develops." Even a maverick plays by rules, and here Trump formulates his own eleven guidelines for success. He isolates the common elements in his greatest deals; he shatters myths ("You don't necessarily need the best location. What you need is the best deal"); he names names, spells out the zeros, and fully reveals the deal-maker's art: from the abandoned property that became the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center to the seedy hotel that became the Grand Hyatt; from the race to rebuild Central Park's Wollman Skating Rink to the byzantine saga of the property that became Trump Tower. And throughout, Trump talks-really talks-about how he does it. Trump On Trump: "I always go into a deal anticipating the worst. If you plan for the worst-if you can live with the worst-the good will always take care of itself." Donald Trump is blunt, brash, surprisingly old-fashioned in spots-and always, always an original. Trump: The Art of the Deal is an unguarded look at the mind of a brilliant entrepreneur and an unprecedented education in the art of the deal. It's the most streetwise business book there is-and a sizzling read for anyone interested in money and success.

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.

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

THANK YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR SHARING YOUR KNOWLEGE HONESTLY.

Only the bigliest lies. Huge. You're going to love these lies. Believe me. Tony Schwartz who actually wrote this book says he would re-title it "The Sociopath." Look for the sequel: "The Russian Sociopath."

In a way fun to read, tells a lot about NY real estate. But it is not by Trump, or a fair account of the man and his life. The writer, who is credited along with Trump on the cover, earned his pay for, as he recently confessed in a New Yorker interview, putting "lipstick on a pig." You have to read the interview along with the book.

Engrossing read, and fascinating how the Donald has been genuine to his beliefs and true to himself since the writing of this book thirty years ago and to today (2016).
