From the Inside Flap
Then he made The Apprentice.
Now The Donald shows you how to make a fortune, Trump style.
HOW TO GET RICH
Real estate titan, bestselling author, and TV impresario Donald J. Trump reveals the secrets of his success in this candid and unprecedented book of business wisdom and advice. Over the years, everyone has urged Trump to write on this subject, but it wasn't until NBC and executive producer Mark Burnett asked him to star in The Apprentice that he realized just how hungry people are to learn how great personal wealth is created and first-class businesses are run. Thousands applied to be Trump's apprentice, and millions have been watching the program, making it the highest rated debut of the season.
In Trump: How to Get Rich, Trump tells all -- about the lessons learned from The Apprentice, his real estate empire, his position as head of the 20,000-member Trump Organization, and his most important role, as a father who has successfully taught his children the value of money and hard work.
With his characteristic brass and smarts, Trump offers insights on how to:
- invest wisely
- impress the boss and get a raise
- manage a business efficiently
- hire, motivate, and fire employees
- negotiate anything
- maintain the quality of your brand
- think big and live large
Plus, The Donald tells all on the art of the hair!
With his luxury buildings, award-winning golf courses, high-stakes casinos, and glamorous beauty pageants, Donald J. Trump is one of a kind in American business. Every day, he lives the American dream. Now he shows you how it's done, in this rollicking, inspirational, and illuminating behind-the-scenes story of invaluable lessons and rich rewards.

WHAT IT IS NOT
Trump doesn't really tell you how to become rich. There are no tips on landing the high paying job or making the killer investments. So if you're looking for a manual to get rich you'll want to look elsewhere. Realistically you'll probably want to get a good personal finance book or a entrepreneurial book.
WHAT THIS BOOK IS
This is actually more of Trump's memoirs where he tells you the tales of some of his big deals he's made and his manual for having a SUCCESSFUL CAREER and life.
Among the gems he shares with you are:
1. How to recruit and hire good talent to work for you. (Hire people who WANT to do your work and are talented and loyal).
2. Get a job good. (Do something you enjoy)
3. Get the pay raise you want. (Ask the boss when he/she's in a good mood)
4. Make good investments. (Invest only in what you are knowledgeable about)
5. Timing is everything when it comes to making deals.
6. You need to know what the other guy is thinking when making deals and meet their needs
A lot of it is common sense really but hearing it from someone like Trump reinforces it.
The book is broken down into 6 main sections:
1. "The Donald J. Trump School of Business,"
2. "Your Personal Apprenticeship: Career Advice from the Donald,"
3. "Money, Money, Money, Money,"
4. "The Secrets of Negotiation"
5. "The Trump Lifestyle,"
6. "Inside the Apprentice."
In the first 3 sections he basically talks about those little gems we mentioned.Read more ›
I also love his new show The Apprentice. Looks like Trump is in top form.
Congrats Mr. Trump on a great book on all of your success. And thank you for sharing.
Well, if you are going to build wealth, makes sense to learn from someone who has done it. And done it again. And again. And again.
Very few successful people share their wealth of knowledge and far too many books are written by paper tigers who have never and cannot walk the walk.
Donald walks the walk and talks the talk. Donald is THE MAN!!!
I read The Art of The Deal and I followed some advice he gave me many years ago. I doubt if Donald will remember me but will be eternally grateful for the advice and help he so generously offered to me.
Trump is an excellent book. Ideal for anyone who wants to achieve the maximum in wealth. Reading this book is like being mentored by Donald one on one. He writes just as he speaks. And considering what this man has accomplished, he is definitely worth listening to.
Thank you Donald both for this great work and for that great advice many years ago in New York.
Thank you Amazon for offering this great book and thank you Donald Trump for writing it. It's an inspirition to all of us higher achievers.
Great book. A must read.
If you are expecting this book to show you all the secrets of making money, this book definitely misleads from its title. Now that I have just finished, I'm not sure how much it is related to "How to Get Rich". Basically, Donald gives advices on negotiation, hard-work, basic money sense and how to be your best (just like him). May be these are the essential attributes of becoming successful and rich. By applying his advice, you could see some self improvement or feel richer for life but not necessarily financially richer.
It's a very concise and almost comical. Each section is short and cleverly titled, like a marketing schemes, and you actually have fun reading it. However, I find the description on a typical week of his life repetitive and boring. The last chapter on The Apprentice is a waste. If you watch the show, there's no point in reading it. Donald lists a lot of names and shows a lot personality in the writing. He complemented many MANY people but also didn't hold back on his dislikes and enemies.
Overall, the book should be appropriately titled as "How to be like The Donald", an autobiography by Donald Trump. Paying $20 to get inside the head of a flaunting real estate mogul is probably worth it, at least the book is entertaining like his show.
