What would have made The Billionaire's Apprentice better?
Every time an Indian character speaks in this book, they are given a stupid imitation Indian accent. Even emails and instant messages by Indian characters get the same Saturday-night live treatment. You get a middle aged white guy spending the whole book putting on this stupid accent.
If the author countenanced this, it was an incredible mistake. Even if the intent was to honor the ethnic mannerisms of the characters, this approach overlooks that when one is reading, they don't assign characters any particular accent. Having to listen to this completely takes the reader out of the book.

What didn’t you like about Dan Woren’s performance?
Dan, for some strange reasons, decided to speak the lines of Indian characters in a made up accent. It sounds like a combination of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Apu from Simpsons. All the Indian characters sound exactly the same. It doesn't matter whether the Indian person was born and brought up in the USA. Every time Dan spoke in this weird accent I cringed. It killed the book for me. Unfortunately the sample didn't play his Arnold-Apu accent.
