President 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.

    So boring. I don’t know why someone would read this. Actually who even likes Donald Trump?👨🏻‍🦳
  • Lots of fake reviews

    By Bob Jones VI
    Seems as though there are lots of fake reviews by hateful and small-minded people who seem to think this is a place where you review the person and not the book itself. This book really helped me to get my finger on the pulse of negotiating in a business climate. Where so many books fail in their “you can do it!” mantras, this book provides helpful context and examples to follow in different scenarios. If the angry people actually read it, they would find the wisdom contained within is timeless and spot-on. Who would you trust for business advice, Trump, or some angry internet commenter?
