Publisher's Summary

A personal note from Donald Trump:

I've always been a big supporter of education. It is the foundation from which we build our lives. As a developer, I know how important the foundation is to the building. A firm foundation is absolutely necessary. It's something you cannot skimp on, or treat lightly, or rush through to get done.

Sometimes people are surprised when they find out that I am so serious about being well read and how much I emphasize education. The fact that there is an educational subtext in The Apprentice is the reason I agreed to do the show. I wanted there to be some substance along with the entertainment value. People of all ages learn lessons - business and otherwise - from watching and that has been a great source of pride for me.

That's one reason I write essays. They are a quick way to learn a thing or two or at least open the mind to thought. I may be successful already, but I learn something new every day. I also make the effort to learn every day. The theory behind my 'think big' credo is that if you want to build skyscrapers, or if you have big goals, you'd better have a good solid foundation to work from. These essays are one way to get that foundation in place and keep your life moving forward in the best way possible. It works for me, and I would hope it works for you.

Sincerely,

Donald Trump.

Very valuable and practical information

As the owner of a small business, my takeaway is that Trump hits the nail on the head with his knowledge and willingness to share. He wants all to succeed. It's no wonder he defied all the odds to become our 45th president.

Great food for business and life!

I enjoy this book and listen to it from time to time to sharpen my thinking about business principles and life habits.

Donald Trump is very open about his life.

Compliments to the narrator as well!

An abundance of critical information and insight

When learning to be a success, it is critically important to learn from those that have a long track record of great success. Thankfully, there are some successful people willing to share, at least some of what they've learned with others, in order that more people might have a greater chance of success, as well. Those willing to share positive information; that has the power to change the lives of others and by extension those around them for the better really do help make the world a better place. Success leaves clues, thank you Donald Trump for allowing many people to learn what you are willing to share; that has helped you become such a great example of success, particularly in family and faith and continuing business sucesses and never giving up and overcoming; even when facing odds that would have overwhelmed most others, by never giving up. It is very interesting and motivating and encouraging hear what you are willing to share; including other aspects and ways of thinking that tend toward successful outcomes in different areas of our lives.

waste of money.

Trump has a great education, has done awesome in his business and this train wreck of a book shows us nothing. If you want to actually learn something buy The Snowball by Alice Schroder. It's a book on the life of Warren Buffett. I will never get a book from Trump again. Waste of money! !!

Worth your money and the narrator...

he is just simply the best! I hope we get to hear more from you, Mr. Skipp Sudduth!
I've read some reviews of Mr. Steve Job's audiobook version (the narrator is not getting good reviews so far).. they could have picked you as the narrator! They would have definitely loved you!

Insight into a legend

There are many different applicable ideas here. This book seems to be an outline of what we should focus on, instead of how to apply the focus, or how to focus on the line item. There is also a strong undertow of political standing that I do now agree with. I fear this undertow has brought a direct and forceful opinion I have not been able to overlook. Perhaps the rating is lower then the content would allow, but if the author allows their political views to come out in the writing or content, they will also allow those views to be scrutinized as part of the book.

Rogue Wave hearing you loud and clear! '-)

Sounds best at 1.5 to 2.0 speed

I loved it. Great quotes, advice and he provides more great reads. Truly the best POTUS and mentor with a positive outlook.
