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.

“Fascinating . . . wholly absorbing . . . conveys Trump’s larger-than-life demeanor so vibrantly that the reader’s attention is instantly and fully claimed.”—Boston Herald
 
“A chatty, generous, chutzpa-filled autobiography.”—New York Post

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Donald Trump is Even Better in Book Form I have been watching "The Apprentice" allot lately so it struck me to read his book for an assignment. I thoroughly enjoyed reading what he has to say. I think he is an amazing entrepreneur and I really respect how easily he will give advice and tips to succeed. I am definitely interested in what deals he had going on, but I don't necessarily need to know how much he made especially since he lost a lot of money after the book came out. I think the knowledge he gives is enough, and he backs it up by still being on top. He is worth 1.6 billion dollars now so I think we all could give this book a little look and recognition.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The Art of the Steal This book would have been more aptly named had the title been "The Art of the Steal". Like any "good" dealer, Donald Trump takes advantage of those who are anxious to sell, for whatever reason. The Donald portrays himself as New York's saviour but comes off as the Bizarro World's version of Robin Hood...the opposite of the archer thief who takes from the rich and gives to the poor. He tells of his many deals--how much he paid, how much it cost to build, how much profit he makes when projects are complete. His true character shines through with such revelations as hating the name Donny (I wonder if his son Donny knows this), taking advantage of recessions by negotiating lower wages for construction workers, and remarking about a competitive bidder that the man should concentrate on losing weight instead of trying to break his deal. "The Art of the Deal" is an interesting read whether you like Trump or not. I'm a big fan of his show, The Apprentice, but think Carolyn Kepcher got shafted because his daughter Ivanka wanted Kepcher's spot on TV. Maybe I'll give "Carolyn 101" a read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly an Art Having recently completed this book I feel obligated to praise not only Trump's insight but his willingness to share it. The one daunting fact about this book that looms is that as it was written before Trump lost all of his money, you find yourself questioning the quality of the suttle advice that he drops. However, the way in which he accounts the events that had taken place detail the attitudes and actions necessary for a successful real estate developper. For the price of the book compared to the value of the information within, had Trump not written it, I believe he would buy as it is such a good and promising deal.
