From Publishers Weekly
With a central role in NBCs The Apprentice, Trumps star is soaring. In his fifth book (after The Art of the Deal, he offers a cursory glance behind the scenes of the hit reality show, but the bulk of the text consists of business advice ("Be Tenacious"; "Play Golf"; "Be Optimistic, but Always Be Prepared for the Worst") with illustrative details culled from his real estate and media dealings. (The glimpses he presents of his transformation of 40 Wall Street hint at a story that might deserve a more serious book all its own.) There are some surprises; at times, the quintessential New Yorker sounds almost like a California New Ager as he recommends up to three hours of quiet reflection a day along with the writings of Carl Jung. But hes soon back in recognizable form, advising readers to "screw enemies back" and explaining why various people (including former governor Mario Cuomo and talk-show host Joy Behar) are dead to him. Trump appears comfortable with himself, and he even makes light of potentially touchy subjects, such as his hair: "My hair is one hundred percent mine. No animals have been harmed in the creation of my hairstyle." There are occasional missteps, like an imitation of the New York Posts iconic gossip column "Page Six," which reads more like an annual Trump Christmas letter. But Trumps books have done an effective job of capturing his grand personality in print, and this volume is no exception. B&w photos throughout.

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

He functions pretty much by his intuition in his experiences. I like well succeeded people with a good self-esteem. What is better? I don't feel he is presumptuous or arrogant in any passage of this book. I only mention it because of my own bias, since he talks like a billionaire, of course. How he would do it afterall?
This book is a how to in only the broadest of terms. The gives some good words to live by - not everything he has to say is a pure nugget of wisdom, but still worthing hearing out.
The cadence of the writing was a bit funky, but then it seemed to mimic the cadence of Trumps speaking. Maybe its a New Yorker thing. ;-)
