Publisher's Summary

America is in serious trouble, and our days as a superpower are numbered, argues businessman and entrepreneur Donald J. Trump in his blockbuster new book.

"Our nation has become a whipping post for the rest of the world. It’s time to get tough on China and other countries that are methodically and systematically taking advantage of the United States," says Trump. "We need to get serious about the debt, we need to get serious about oil, we need to get serious about job creation, and we need to get serious about our country’s future." With his trademark candor and charisma, Trump reveals his hardline, commonsense solutions to the problems plaguing us today and shows how we can put our country back on the path to greatness.

Nobody is better at achieving spectacular success than Donald Trump. Here, Trump shows how America can do the same.

top notch book

What did you love best about Time to Get Tough?

I enjoyed Donald Trump's answers to get our country back to being #1 in the world.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Time to Get Tough?

Take the oil.

Have you listened to any of Malcolm Hillgartner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

None

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Saving America

Any additional comments?

I wish Donald would have spent more time explaining his previous bankruptcy experiences. I also would have liked him to go into more detail about how he would overcome the resistence that would happen to our president when that president takes the oil or institutes a 25% tariff on China.

Trump's Take On The Economy

I've always found Donald Trump to be entertaining, but I prefer him when he's not talking - or writing - about politics. With that said, this book is fairly enjoyable, but keep in mind that you're paying to hear Trump's opinion on the economy and how to turn things around. Don't assume everything he says is fact. He's a smart guy, and I'm sure his motivation for getting this book published was to make money and position himself as a potential Presidential candidate - should he decide to run in 2012.

Like many books that strive to be persuasive, several of Trump's points are beat to death - specifically those about OPEC and China. While his reasoning seems logical, I feel he spent a little too much time trying to convince the reader - or the listener in this case - that he is right. What I found fascinating was his take on publicly-funded programs like social security and welfare. It's a shame you never hear him interviewed on TV about these issues.

The narrator did a fantastic job of capturing Trump's signature, no-BS attitude that we've all come to love or, in some cases, hate. He's a real delight to listen to, and I'll have to look out for him when downloading audiobooks in the future.

If you like Trump, you'll probably like "Time to Get Tough." While it's not a classic business book, like "The Art of the Deal," it is definitely an entertaining and well read audiobook that's worth checking out.

What the media does not report

A great listen for anyone who wants to be inspired to be great, personally, professionally or politically. A real American would vote for this author even if his name is Trump. Our country needs his leadership as he demonstrates in this

Book.

Gives all of his beliefs and philosophy before hitting the campaign trail – where else do you get that?

I have studied Trump for about 15 years now for varied reasons. If you are going to have an opinion about him, please make it one that is educated. This book is an excellent way to understand the man, his beliefs, and what drives him.

A clear direction for the USA.

Years ago Donald Trump established a direction and concrete goals for our country. This book clearly details them while being an entertaining read.

Highly recommended.

Absolutely Brilliant!

Say what you like about Donald Trump, but the guy can write a book. No question. This is a very honest book full of things that we wish the politicians would just come out and say! Although its all about the USA there are many similarities to the situation faced by the UK too. I just wish there were more people in the government with a Donald Trump approach. I suspect it was written to somehow gain popularity for his possible run for office but never the less I really respect him for having the courage to say what is in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it, not least because the narrator Malcolm Hillgartner does his usual fantastic job communicating Donald Trump's aggressive, no nonsense style.
