Some of his advice on being successful in business includes not sleeping more than 4 hours a night and similar unpractical things.
My advice is save your money....if you are really curious about this book borrow it from a friend or the library. Don't let this book take up valuable real estate on your bookshelf!
How bad and useless is this children's book of financial "wisdom"?
1.) If you removed the words "me", "I", "my", "mine" (and every other narcissistic variant of the first person pronoun ), "Trump", "Apprentice" and "Mar-Lago" the runtime of this audiobook could be cut by an easy 25%.
Cut out the superfluous "information" about the tile at Trump's home and scores of other references that have absoultely nothing to do with you or success and you kill another 40% of time. What are you left with?
2.) A host of vague and contradicting generalities that are so broad or commonsense that they are frankly insulting. My pity to anyone who actually paid for this man's self-promoting diatribe of no real value.
3.) Then Trump wants to teach you about dieting and landscaping and...stop!!!! I can't take it. It's too hard to balance laughter and disgust!!
I borrowed this to listen to in the car, but the amount of noxious fumes and carbon dioxide spewed from the speakers actually made it impossible to listen to all the way through. I actually started carrying a caged canary in the car to warn me of the CO2 levels until I could get the oxygen masks that drop from the ceiling installed. Ugh!Read more ›
This book is divided into four sections ...
(1) How to buy/rent a house?
(2) How to invest in the stock market?
(3) Trump's consumer guide.
(4) Apprentice: Behind the scenes ...
The "buy/rent" and the "invest in stock market" sections just seems useless. The advice is pretty much lame ... "buy house in good locality.", "buy the best house you can", "delegate responsibility of investing to Investment Gurus", "Invest (100 minus your age) in stocks" etc. All in all, nothing new. I wonder if Donald Trump really wrote this book or just OEM'ed it?
The Trump's Consumer Guide clearly brings out the shallow, superficial nature of Donald Trump. All the "best of the world" seems to exist only inside the Trump Tower. It clearly exhibits the "Frog in the well" thinking.
The final "Apprentice: Behind the scenes" section seems like pure filler. The sole goal being to promote Apprentice and to glorify himself. Donald Trump mistakenly seems to be taking credit for Apprentice's success ... what a loser? :-)
All in all, this is an useless & worthless book. Don't waste your time reading this book!
"Trump: Think Like a Billionaire" is a quick read, just 229 pages, and they're not top-to-bottom filled at that. Lots of quick thoughts, just over a page or 2 pages long. But Trump does give a couple of good tips. Such as in the introduction, about thinking like a billionaire: "Don't take vacations... Have a short attention span... Don't sleep anymore than you have too... Don't depend on technology... Think of yourself as a one-man army..." etc. Or on how to impress anyone in business: "Be on time... Make a mental dossier on people... Let other people talk... Be self-depreciating and disarming..." etc. It all sounds pretty evident, but not really! There is a chapter on "The Apprentice 2", with an inside look on the first 4 episodes. Nothing mindboggling, but it does show that the Donald is very involved and hands-on with the show.
If there is anything that bothers me in the book, it's the endless gratuitous name-dropping, it just doesn't stop and most of the time just self-serving. Reading this book certainly won't get you much closer to becoming a billionaire, if that is your objective. That said, this is a pleasant "quickie" read, nothing more, nothing less.
