I have read books by just about every financial guru out there including many prior books by Donald Trump and I have to say this is the best one so far. Unlike many wealth building and investing books this book actually tells you what to do and more importantly what to do right now. If you really want to understand how people like Donald Trump think and then know how to translate that thought process into action you simply have to read this book.

I didn't expect to immediately get wealthy by reading Wealth Building 101. In fact, I was a little skeptical about why someone would want to show me how to get rich. But after reading this book, I realized it's more about my personal view on wealth and Donald Trump showing me how to change the view to make wealth more attainable. I see now that wealth is about owning: it could be real estate or it could be a business, but once you put that in your mind it's easier to to understand. I highly recommend this book if you work a 9-5 and want to stop making other people rich!

Nice overview of different investment options and strategies, as well as wealth protection. The subtitle "Your first 90 Days...." is misleading, there's nothing in there that even mentions what to do in your first 90 days. I thought this would be a roadmap of how to get on the path to building wealth. Instead, it just reviews the obvious: Stocks, Real Estate, Entrepreneurship. Each chapter is written by different authors, only one by Trump, so that's a little misleading too. I felt like it was more of an advertisement for each of the authors other books. Fine for someone with no experience in investing and just wants some background without help building an actual 90 day plan.

I have been a fan of Trump for a long time. One of my all time favorite books is the Trump classic, "The Art of the Deal". What I have found in Wealth Building 101 however is far more valuable. The book is a literal blueprint for success and wealth. It tells you exactly what to do, how to do it and why you should start yesterday.

Much of the wisdom of this book I am already applying to my life but there are new things even for an old timer like myself in this book along with methods to tie things together in a much more organized way.

Some love Trump and some well, not so much, what I will say though is this if you want to build a wealth portfolio this is the book you simply must have. This is a how to manual by a dream team of Donald's personal advisers. Trump clearly can afford the best, now you can to for the price of a book.

I just want to say that all the Trump University books are excellent, and this might be the best of them all - at least it speaks most directly to my personal needs. I have a shelf full of books about investing and personal wealth, but this one really breaks ground. Specifically, it talks about the essential functions that real estate investing and entrepreneurship play in getting rich. And when you stop and think about it, that really makes a lot of sense. Donald Trump and other ultra-rich people (from Branson to Jobs) all started companies and have real-estate holdings. So that is why I say that this book expands on the information that I have found elsewhere. I also like the advice on protecting what you have earned, but I am only getting into those chapters now.
So overall, a home run.

Normally these kind of books are not my cup of tea--but I must confess, I got into this one. It's filled with some pretty useful/practical information. I'm actually just starting to use the worksheets in this book now to get a better handle on my finances.

I was hoping for more from this book.. but it literally is a "101" book on wealth building. Trump's name & picture are on the front but he doesn't write much. The sections are done by different financial people. And their advice is a) very basic and b) fairly slanted. I finished the book and wanted more. The main reason I purchased it was for an intro into the asset protection and there's not much meat here.. nor on most of the other subjects.

Not impressed.

My fiance and I received this book as a gift from my "soon to be" brother in law. At first, I took it as a dig about how much money we make. However, after reading it, I think this is the best gift we received to help us start our new lives together. It really changed my perspective on how to organize my own personal finances, which I learned is the first step on the road to building wealth. Wealthy people are wealthy because they think about their money differently. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.

Donald Trump and his team of true expert's have put together a basic guide from getting out of debt to achieving the financial freedom we all dream about. Available are downloadable form's to assist you from going from theory to application using these techniques that they suggest. This isn't rocket science; anyone with the will to get out of debt can do this and even if you make minimum wage.

I am a great fan of Trump and have read several of his books. This book is one of the poorest work done in the name of "trump".

Many so called "big authors" have contributed several essays on various topics. It seems that they might have been assigned to write something on these topics by the BIG BOSS- Mr Trump and these authors have to comply with his orders. Then Trump would have asked one of his editors to compile all these essays in the form of a book with Trump's name and photograph affixed on the cover.

This is NOT done. When we look up to a great Visionary like Trump, we expect only value additive guidance and not FLUFF. I am sorry to say that I felt betrayed and cheated. I am sure that even Mr Trump would have been feeling sorry at the final out come of this book.

There are hundreds of much better books available in the market on personal finance and self help.

Thanks and warm regards
