Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Given Trump's larger than life—and polarizing—public persona, part of Skipp Sudduth's achievement as narrator is his creation of a buffer zone of sorts. Granted, the entrepreneur does deliver a zealous introduction, but as Sudduth takes over, it becomes possible to overlook the positive and negative caricatures of Trump the celebrity and focus on his tangible no-nonsense advice. While viewers of The Apprentice will certainly recognize The Donald 's bravado in the recurring litany of accomplishments related to the global Trump brand, Sudduth's presentation of the career and personal growth tips will resonate with listeners. A Vanguard hardcover. (Apr.)

"(E)ntertaining and valuable account of how to play the Trump card... I (found) his stories valuable and entertaining. In particular, the chapter titles are snappy and motivational. Trump's advice is that we should never think our way is the only way. Perhaps his readers should keep that in mind." -The Irish Times "Donald's wisdom is priceless-it's the perfect book at the perfect time." -Robert Kiyosaki, New York Times bestselling author of Rich Brother Rich Sister" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I thought Donald Trump's last book was his best to date. In the same way that each of his buildings seems to trump his most recent, so too with this book. Trump has once again trumped Trump. This is his best book yet (why do I have a feeling that an even better book is already in process???).

This is an easy book for critics to dismiss as a celebrity fluff piece. But, the book really is far better than that. The fifty short essays, in and by themselves, are first rate commentary on important concepts for business and life. Taken together, the fifty essays provide a wonderful insight into the way Trump thinks and acts. And, gaining an insight into how Trump thinks and acts is worthwhile for he is world's pre-eminent master at personal brand building - a competency needed for almost every successful person.

Each of the fifty essays is well written, and each concept is illustrated by a short story to reinforce the point being made. The result is a book that almost invites speed reading...but I urge readers to slow down and really think through each of the fifty points being made. Even better yet, challenge yourself to grade yourself, as I have, on each of the fifty points. By grading yourself, I expect that you will gain new respect for Trump and new insights into just how brilliant Trump is.

Let's take the example of "You Can Better Your Best at Anytime." The fact that Donald Trump walks the talk with this mantra is readily apparent. Each of his buildings outdoes his previous best. As does each of his books. Etc. Etc. Prior to reading this book, that life philosophy was not woven into the fabric of my life. In a world where many guru's are preaching "good is good enough," Trump exhorts us to make our efforts a masterpiece.

Love him or hate him, Donald Trump on many fronts has been extremely successful. While some say it's just because he got a good head start from his father, the truth is, Trump would not be where he's at, and would not have succeeded as he's done without many contributing factors. One such factor is his optimistic, positive charged, enthusiastic big thinking. If you want to model success, modeling the way Trump thinks is not a bad place to start. In his book "Think Like A Champion" written with Meredith McIver and starting with a Foreword by Robert Kiyosaki, Trump shares with readers what he calls an informal education in business and life. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the fifty essays in this book, and if you liked any of Trump's previous books, I'm sure you will really like this one.

The essays are mostly two to four pages long, with many being right around two and a half pages. So they are very easy to read. You could read the entire book through quickly, or just pick an essay or two a day. First, I found the essays very positive and uplifting. I think it would be difficult to read this book and not feel a bit motivated to pursue great accomplishments upon reading The Donald's advice and examples. However, I think the book goes beyond a motivational "vanity" piece. The essays really do have substance, and some very practical and sound advice on a variety of topics.

I also like that each essay has a quote at the heading. Trump mentions that he likes quotes, and so do I. The essay titled "Have the Right Mindset for the Job" has a quote by Henry Ford at the heading, "Don't find fault. Find a remedy." I'm using that quote in a conflict resolution program I'm teaching next week.

In one of the essays, Trump mentions how he likes to get right to the point.

The book keeps form with Mr. Trumps value for brevity in that it is concise, only 198 pages, but offers his valuable insight on an informal education on business and life from a seasoned entrepreneur.

Trump places a quote atop each chapter by such individuals as Albert Einstein, Aristotle, Henry Ford, Napoleon, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Abraham Lincoln, Socrates, Henry David Thoreau, etc. Some of the author's suggestions that I found valuable include:

"Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success. - Henry Ford" (11).
"...a good way to handle difficult and even tragic times - to find blessing in the midst of adversity" (14).
"Never think of learning as being a burden or studying as being boring. It may require some discipline, but it can be an adventure" (17).
"The more you learn, the more you realize what you don't know" (35).
"As Jack Dempsey said, "A champion is someone who gets up when he can't" (39).
"I view my work as an art form" (43).
"Fear defeats more people than any other one thing in the world" - Ralph Waldo Emerson (51).
"Business is no place for stream of consciousness babbling, no matter how colorful you might think you are being. Whatever you're doing, keep it short, fast, and direct. (61)
"People appreciate brevity in today's world" (63).
"Don't find fault, find a remedy" - Henry Ford" (65).
"We are all businessmen and women, whether you see it that way yet or not. If you like art and can't make money at it, you eventually realize that everything is a business, even your art...I see my business as an art and so I work at it passionately." (86).
"Men are born to succeed, not fail. - Henry David Thoreau" (101).
"You can better your best at any time" (121).
