In Raising Trump, Ivana Trump reflects on her extraordinary life and the raising of her three children - Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka - and recounts the lessons she taught her children as they were growing up. As her former husband takes his place as the 45th president of the United States, his children have also been thrust into the media spotlight - but it is Ivana who raised them and proudly instilled in them what she believes to be the most important life lessons: loyalty, honesty, integrity, and drive.

I didnt chose this book to be entertained, though it was sufficient in that regard. I chose it to better understand 45, whom I believe will prove to be the most successful and significant President in my lifetime.

I was relieved to learn about the upbringing of the Trump children. There is genuine character in them thanks to very impressive parenting. It speaks volumes about our President's closest and eternal advisors.

America is truly in better hands thanks in large part to the Trump children. And for that, Ivana has earned my respect and gratitude. I sincerely wish I could call them friends - which is my way of saying moral loyal and trusted friends one will not find.

The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. And the next Mark Zuckerberg won't create a social network. If you are copying these guys, you aren't learning from them. It's easier to copy a model than to make something new: doing what we already know how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. But every time we create something new, we go from 0 to 1.

Peter T is beyond credible, so you must give his thoughts, perspective, and rules for success strong merit. Strong combination of anecdote and conclusions. Must read for business leaders. Epiphanies to be found.
