OK, so he is egotistical. That doesn't change the fact that his life makes for really interesting reading - in fact, he is an amazing man, whether you like him or not. This book is about "surviving at the top" and he should know! He wouldn't have gotten to where he is, if he did'nt know how to survive.
I love any books on Trump - they are always interesting and easy to read, because he just tells it like it is.

Who knows more about Trump than Trump himself? This is a good book if you want to know more about Trump. At times he is sincere; like when he tells of the various disadvantaged people he has helped. At times he sounds really fake; he mentions how he admires the courage of gamblers. That is alot of boloney. At times he is boastful; the Trump Princess is the best yacht ever built. But hate him or love him, he says it like it is. He seems very vindictive as evident with his numerous attacks on some very famous people throughout the book. But for those who are his friends, he has nothing but praise for them. He doesn't play politics, but what he does do is make deals and makes a whole bunch of them in this book. One of the recurring themes of the book is to wait for the right price even if it means giving it up and not to let emotions dictate the price. In many instances, the deal comes back to him and at an even better price than ever.

Trying to read Mr. Trump's books in the order he produced them. This one includes some episodes and reflections that show his heart and caring side and also, to readers who haven't prejudged him because of brashness and bluntness, shows his talent at understanding the personality and motivations of others. Reading this book and others by Trump shows he has identified national and international problems - AND SOLUTIONS - for years. Having read this book and a couple others it dispels the popular media habit of bashing Trump for not having details or substance behind his recommended action on many issues of importance to America.

For those seeking a noteworthy sequel to the Art of the Deal (a book I rated very high), you will be sorely disappointed. This book contains none of the charm or the excitement behind the building of Donald's empire. Instead, in Surviving at the Top, we are merely given a plain account of Trump's dealings since the time of his first book. The information is written in a manner that is not any more articulate than one might find on Wikipedia.

I give this book two stars instead of one because it does contain some information that would not be available had Donald not decided to put it in print; thus those with a deep interest in Trump will find some value. I personally just could not get past the fact that Donald put together this book as a quick narrative of events to cash in on his last book success rather than provide a quality piece of work on the level of the Art of the Deal.

Better than his Art of the Deal, in his own words, would be unlikely, but the opportunity to reflect upon bridging the gap from 1987 to 2015 for how one achieves success in America, and whether there are any second acts for success in other endeavors is critical to national vitality and endurance. This should already have been answered in America, but may well be a timely book to answer that question. We are still machievellian, or we are stuck in Marxian utilitarianism, all related to breathing space.

This was a great follow-up to a true story. When you've reached the pinnacle, everyone attacks.
