Publisher's Summary

He's got the biggest personality in business. His trademark line "You're fired" from The Apprentice is one of America's most recognizable catchphrases. He's survived the biggest real-estate bankruptcy in history and climbed his way back to the top. He's Donald J. Trump, and he's going to reveal to listeners the secrets to succeeding like he has in Think BIG and Kick Ass in Business and Life. His co-author is Bill Zanker, CEO of the Learning Annex, which he started with $5,000 in Bar Mitzvah money. It's now one of Inc. magazine's 500 Fastest Growing Companies for the second straight year, with over $100 million in sales. Together, they think BIG! And now, listeners will learn how they too can kick ass and achieve the success they've always dreamed of in business - and in their personal lives as well. This audiobook is filled with the authors' incredible personal stories from their rough-and-tumble rise to the top of their fields, plus the experiences of other top achievers, including Russell Simmons, Mark Burnett, and Vince McMahon. Readers will get the inside story on Trump's recent clash with Rosie O'Donnell, how not to crack under pressure, the secrets to staying focused, how Trump himself stumbled and recovered multiple times on his way to the top, and much more. The book features the Trump IT test, which will drive listeners to see if they have what IT takes and in what areas they need to kick it up, plus a selection of the best Q & A's from Trump's incredibly popular Learning Annex Wealth Expos and true stories of success from students who are already practicing his "Think BIG" strategies.

A peek at Trump's worldview, but left empty

Is there anything you would change about this book?

It is not clear from the book that you are really only getting about 50% of the book from Trump, with the other half "written" by Bill Zanker. Truth be told, I ended up actually enjoying some of the Zanker material more than the Trump material, but that wasn't clear when using my credit.

What did you take away from Think BIG and Kick Ass in Business and Life that you can apply to your work?

If you want to be successful in business, you kinda have to be a dick.

Any additional comments?

On the whole, I don't believe my credit was wasted, it was an interesting look at two men's take on success in business, but for someone looking for a good business book, I would check out Millionaire Mind and Good To Great first before even considering this book.
