Any additional comments?

This is where the instructor begins to say "please repeat" in mandarin, instead of english. I guess some people didn't get it and think it's a glitch. Personally, I find it's a lot better if you can listen to instructions like "please repeat" and "listen to this conversation" in mandarin. That way you never have to shift gears, so to speak. And can begin to think and listen as well as speak in mandarin.

  • Trump: The Art of the Deal

  • By: Donald J. Trump, Tony Schwartz

Here is Trump in action—how he runs his organization and how he runs his life—as he meets the people he needs to meet, chats with family and friends, clashes with enemies, and challenges conventional thinking. But even a maverick plays by rules, and Trump has formulated time-tested guidelines for success. He isolates the common elements in his greatest accomplishments; he shatters myths; he names names, spells out the zeros, and fully reveals the deal-maker's art. And throughout, Trump talks—really talks—about how he does it.

The narrator was pretty good. He does a pseudo impression of trump that I found amusing. the book is very boring tbough, no real tips on dealmaking, just a series of boring and incoherent accounts of things he did, a lot of self praise too, as expected. 3/10 would not recommend
