"A great how-to book from an associate of the glitziest and most interesting personality in the real-estate business." (Bookpage)
The positive of this book is the fascination of hearing all about Trump's deals and how his out-of-the-box thinking gets him great deals and makes him lots of money. The negative is that everything is on such a large scale that it's hard to apply to most small investors.
I think the intention of the book was to use Trump as an example and show how to apply his ideas to the small investor. For me, personally, a lot of those concepts were over my head, but what I did get out of the book was motivation and inspiration. So I would recommend the book more on entertainment value than educational value.
The first half is just examples of what Trump has done in the past but doesn't have much to do with the average investor. It mostly applies to big-time commercial investors but doesn't really get into much detail. The second half has more applicable tips to use in real estate.
While the delivery was a little stale and dry - probably intolerable if you're not dedicated on a road trip - the content was amazing. It's quite clear the author steered many of Trump's largest deals as well as those of New York developer elite. Would highly recommend for both creative financing and structured dealmaking strategies.
I have a hard time listening to audio books, but this one kept my interest for the entire time. The narrator is fantastic. I felt like I was listening to Ross, not some idiot reading a book. I liked all the case studies from young Trump's hayday in NYC. Good book
