Publisher's Summary

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

Great Book from a Great Man!

He may not be perfect, but he is honest and one who takes stand for what's fair. Trump has a natural talent and wisdom that makes him one of the most successful man in the world.

What is this about!

I am not sure what is this about. He mentioned every deal he made but never revealed any interesting thing about it! Not a single thought about what to consider when making a deal, let alone the 'Art'!

Surprisingly enjoyable!

I bought this book intending on getting to understand President Trump better. I wasn't particularly expecting it to be well written, or even less, "enjoyable".

What I got was a three. A better understanding of President Trump, a VERY well written book, and highly enjoyable to listen to!

I can't recommend purchasing this enough!

as good as a MAGA hat

the first three chapters were basically a day in the life of, but the story really opened up after that, and I loved it. I learned, I enjoyed, and will probably listen to it again.
the guy reading it sounded like Trump as well, really added reality to it.

Great Insight!

I wanted to “read” this book as a way to get insight into how our President operates when dealing with others. It was a good listen and provided the insight!

My Audible purchases are all business, leadership and finance books and this fit right in. Recommend!

Boring if you are not interested in real estate

I thought that this is more about "how to make a deal" kinda book. The book is about how he conducted some of his big deals. There are something to learn from but this was not exactly what expected. Anyways, if you are into real estate and wanna learn about Trump's career development, it's a good book.

What’s the big deal!!

When I was first coming into this book I was thinking I was going to learn about how Trump as made his fortune on this 11 key principles that you learn in the book but, instead I was in for a more full back story on Trumps life and what he has done and all the deals his was able to make. In my opinion that was just as important as the key principles of making a great deal.

A great primer in dealmaking

One great thing about this book is that it sets deals in a real context; not just academic or theoretical. And as with any good coaching, it’s up to the reader to pick up the lessons, they are not just spoon-fed.
The best part is that the Donald’s natural enthusiasm for dealmaking comes through in each chapter, which not only makes it interesting to learn from, but just an interesting read even if the reader has no intention of ever making a deal.
The narrating is done really well. Clear, easy to follow and in a manner which makes listening easy and enjoyable.

Great book covering many business project cases

A great incite into the business mind of Donald Trump. As I am studying for an MBA, this book was recommended as an alternative read to the course text books to offer an overview of real case studies covering many different business projects. Pleased that I didn't listen to the political bias of students that hate without digging deeper.

For anyone interested in real estate, I think you will really enjoy this book. I got a lot out of the lessons learnt, the very candid conversation in development and an interesting perspective on development and investing. One to definitely add to the reading list.

Brilliant content, inspiring story, great energy!

A truly breathtaking story that you can't help but feel fired up and inspired! Trump is quite possibly one of the most intelligent businessmen of our time! I never knew half of the things he did in New York as well as the amount of community project he has personally financed and completed.

Although he is a very controversial political figure in mainstream media, I encourage anyone to put bias aside and listen to this book to see the mind behind the man.
