Interesting, but not very helpful

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.

So so not my first choice

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.

Not very practical

It says it can be for smaller investors but it really isn't. just a bunch of Trump deal case studies.

Great overview of strategies with useful specifics

Loved the narrator and found the content insightful. The strategy of Trump is proven. I feel better prepared to ask the proper quesions when negotiating.

Maybe over my head

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Maybe

What about Alan Nebelthau’s performance did you like?

Yes

Could you see Trump Strategies for Real Estate being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Maybe... He is an interesting man.

Any additional comments?

I was looking for general facts on how to handle different problems and to help improve myself. This book was stories about their working relationship and how they both handle different scenarios. Maybe above my hand.

The guy behind the guy

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.

Very Good Author, Very Good Narrator

Would you listen to Trump Strategies for Real Estate again? Why?

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

Genius

George shares his techniques and highlight some of key deals that he work with Donald on. And just like the book says, these can be applied to small real estate transactions for the average Joe. Definitely a must read! You will learn, how to use Trump style strategies and ideas for investing in real estate. these techniques can also be applied in interviewing for a job, negotiating contracts, or agreements, or dealing with a spouse or significant other in the form of negotiating.
