Publisher's Summary

He's got the biggest personality in business. His trademark line "You're fired" from The Apprentice is one of America's most recognizable catchphrases. He's survived the biggest real-estate bankruptcy in history and climbed his way back to the top.

He's Donald J. Trump, and he's going to reveal to listeners the secrets to succeeding like he has in Think BIG and Kick Ass in Business and Life. His co-author is Bill Zanker, CEO of the Learning Annex, which he started with $5,000 in Bar Mitzvah money. It's now one of Inc. magazine's 500 Fastest Growing Companies for the second straight year, with over $100 million in sales.

Together, they think BIG! And now, listeners will learn how they too can kick ass and achieve the success they've always dreamed of in business - and in their personal lives as well.

This audiobook is filled with the authors' incredible personal stories from their rough-and-tumble rise to the top of their fields, plus the experiences of other top achievers, including Russell Simmons, Mark Burnett, and Vince McMahon. Readers will get the inside story on Trump's recent clash with Rosie O'Donnell, how not to crack under pressure, the secrets to staying focused, how Trump himself stumbled and recovered multiple times on his way to the top, and much more.

The book features the Trump IT test, which will drive listeners to see if they have what IT takes and in what areas they need to kick it up, plus a selection of the best Q & A's from Trump's incredibly popular Learning Annex Wealth Expos and true stories of success from students who are already practicing his "Think BIG" strategies.

Well-Armored and Masculine

I read this as an antidote to the feminizing vulnerability worship of DARE TO LEAD by Brené Brown. Chapter 6 on revenge was awesome. Nothing like a dose of Trump to strengthen the soul.

A peek at Trump's worldview, but left empty

Is there anything you would change about this book?

It is not clear from the book that you are really only getting about 50% of the book from Trump, with the other half "written" by Bill Zanker. Truth be told, I ended up actually enjoying some of the Zanker material more than the Trump material, but that wasn't clear when using my credit.

What did you take away from Think BIG and Kick Ass in Business and Life that you can apply to your work?

If you want to be successful in business, you kinda have to be a dick.

Any additional comments?

On the whole, I don't believe my credit was wasted, it was an interesting look at two men's take on success in business, but for someone looking for a good business book, I would check out Millionaire Mind and Good To Great first before even considering this book.

Good pump up

Awesome. Trumps thinking is refreshingly aggressive. He does blow his trumpet alot but alot of the stories are funny and all are inspirational. If your loking for a a bit of a pump up this is great.

Get it Now

We all take advice from successful millionaires. But how often can we take an advice from a billionaire? You need to read this book, there is a self-assessment test in the begging. It's important you pass it, because I'm sure most people will fail. Once you read it, unless you are an idiot, you will have what it takes to pass the test.
Also I highly recommend Anthony Robbins 30 day audio program called Personal Power, Time of your life, Art of Influence, and of course, Creating lasting change. Just keep at it, and it takes 30 days to build a habit of learning 15-30 min a day forever.

Think Bigger! GetNuclearCritical withyour thinking

At times you couldn't tell who was talking because there wasn't a pre- transition statement. Regardless the point was still taken or understood.

It was great opportunity to see inside the mind and how the big boys think and

Interesting and entertaining

This book was easy to follow and motivational. Trump's raw and direct style is fun and interesting. My only negative - the use of the same narrator for both Trump and Zanger - it would have been better to use different voices because it was easy to confuse the story lines. It would have been even better if each author narrated the book themselves.

Excellent book. If the Trump haters didn’t know it was his, they’d read/love it, too.

Excellent book. I don’t read self-help, but this is a worthy exception. I highly recommend it.

Mr Adrian Praljak ( Australian Lawyer )

Loved this book.

Contains extremely valuable; "Advice" from the: Past, Current, Into The Future; comming directly from; USA President Donald Trump.

However , the book fails to Mention that; 1) President Donald Trump received many Millions of Dollars and that his Father Fred Trump Financially bailed out President Donald Trump for many years and also 2) That Fred Trump introduced and grew the professional Networks/Circles for President Donald Trump over many decades.

These are very important considerations to take into account when reading this book in our views and opinions.

Thank You
