He began to prepare for adversity and even welcomed it. That kind of attitude can give you power to conquer obstacles and succeed in the face of long odds.

This book is the epitome of the individual that has had to fight for everything they want and have in life. The message is clear, the direction is precise. You would have to be an idiot not to see the message here. I enjoyed this book very much. It is one of the books that will be a repeat listen.
I'm a big Trump fan and have rated many of his other books five stars. However, this book was just a rehash of the Art of the Deal, and not as interesting. One would expect from the title of the book that it would be an analysis of problems Trump has encountered and the strategies he employed to solve said problems. Instead, he lists out some obstacles he's encountered, says he worked really hard even though to the outside world it may have looked easy, and that everything worked out for the best; sometimes even better than he'd expected. I thought the book was kind of glib, and was glad it was only 4 hours. Disappointed.
The Don is more of a teacher than he is a real estate mogul. I did pick up some golden nuggets from this book . The reader of the book did not touch me like the reader in Donald Trump and Bill Zankers Think Big And Kick Ass
Did . Overall good book
This book lays out Donald Trump's path to success, failure and success again. This book proves that to be successful you must learn the characteristics of recognizing opportunity and continue to fight for what you want.
I'm a web developer from Sydney, Australia who loves every opportunity to learn something new. Audible is perfect for this!
I'd recommend it as I found it an intriguing look into Donald Trump's mentality and enjoyed the stories of his life and decisions he made.
It gave me a new insight into who he was and the mindset he has which has helped him come back from ruin and ultimately be incredibly successful.
I enjoyed listening to his story of going onto Saturday Night Live and what it was like.
I listened to it in about 24 hours. Wasn't one sitting but quite close to it!
Donald indicate that perseverence is key to achieve your goals
easy way in which it was told
Never say never, just do it
Great book, awesome story. Many life lessons embedded
The message never quit!
I don't think the story needs changing, the moral throughout was don't give up so if was presented in an engaging way so the story didn't really matter
Pretty convincing, after a whole you get to hear him as Donald
Anything is possible with self belief
Even though this is not your traditional self help book, it helps. It lets ou focus on you but keeps pushing you forward. Nothing to remember no 5 rules of this 7 rules of that, just don't give up. Too simple for some maybe, but I think it works.
I liked that he spoke about how you can always recover from a devastating blow. He is a bit out of touch with the "masses" and he toots his own horn a great deal.
It was good listening to it. A little less I did this, I did that and more recent events to go along with the current economy.
yes. inspiring and I love the voice of the reader, feels like Donald Trump read this book.
I don't know who is responsible for breaking a 30+ chapter book into 4 audio chapters, but it was extremely frustrating if you needed to rewind or FF and the sensitive controls on your Nano cause it to skip forward or back to the previous [audio] "chapter". Then you've got to search forever to get back to your spot.
"Loved every minute"
Some of the messages in this book are a great metaphor for life and you can apply it to all areas of life.
It's actually quite funny too.
I definitely recommend this.
