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.

Not sure I should take advice from someone who is such a bad business man.

On the surface, this simplistic style of writing can be easily passed over. The true gold is in rereading it several times with wisdom, experience, and applying those principles to life and business settings. It takes a real intellectual desire and worldly maturity to fully understand and appreciate this book. Of course, if the reader does not have that... there is always... Saul David Alinsky.

This book gave me a greater understanding of our President.

1. He is patient
2. He understands politicians
3. He is a smart businessman
4. He is generous
5. He loves his family and America
6. He is street smart and brilliant
7. He sees the big picture
8. He is flexible

As others have commented about the 1 star ratings, many didn't read the entire book.

Donald Trump does not write his own books.

Read an article about the man who actually wrote this book:

Trump is a traitor and so are the idiots who still support him.

Trump didn't write this book. He doesn't know how to make a deal, like his failure to secure one with North Korea. He does know how to compromise himself, sexually assault women, collude with Russia and mobilize racists to vote for him.

I read the commments, clearly as would expect-along political lines: Those for the man were quick to judge the negative comments. Those against were quick to judge the man. My words, as unbiased as they may try to be will likely draw similar scorn but just sticking to the book itself. It is a rather poor read and does not really lend any insight into, what I imagined was the authors intent, deal making. I myself am interested in international business, wherein America’s past and future progress lies. This book does nothing there. I personally do not see anything rem arkable in the man and this book only confirms that. I certainly would have passed on purchasing the book within the first few pages. That said there are plenty of empty books like this no matter the political spectrum.

I'm one of those who will comment without finishing the book. I used to edit business and technology books professionally. I could not waste my time on something so poorly written and printed. It looked like a cheap take-away copy you'd get at a conference session. It had no insights to offer beyond a kind of obsessive persistence. I can't believe anyone established a reputation on such thin evidence of negotiating ability.
