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.

Understanding the President of the USA!

Donald Trump is a Honey Badger! This book explains how Trump hustles and creates opportunity where others only see complexity and futile battle. He sees value in abandoned property, distressed hotels, managing total value, managing details, hiring the best people, and waiting for the "right" price.

He built a staking rink that the NYC government could not. He got Casinos built in Atlantic City that others could not. He fought rent-control fraud. He transitioned from a background in residential construction into into major, iconic construction. The easy thing was probably to quit or never try, how many of us challenge Mayors, Celebrities, and the press on a routine basis.

After reading this book, you will see that Trump is tough as hell and can usually out-last the opposition. Also, there is much of the Cornelius Vanderbilt in Trump. In the book, he is 40, today he is 70, this dude has incredible energy, toughness, and drive - just like Vanderbilt.

Book was written in 1987, he already talks about hiring/promoting women, accepting a gay friend, being bi-partisan, doing business globally. and renting to black people. These were not universal principles back then and show he is much different than the media want to frame him today.

The narrator is awesome, after a while, you actually think it's Trump talking. It's really well done.

Is That You Mr. President?

The narrator did a great job capturing Trump's voice, attitude, and emergy with each word. Sounded just like him.
