Publisher's Summary

A personal note from Donald Trump:

I've always been a big supporter of education. It is the foundation from which we build our lives. As a developer, I know how important the foundation is to the building. A firm foundation is absolutely necessary. It's something you cannot skimp on, or treat lightly, or rush through to get done.

Sometimes people are surprised when they find out that I am so serious about being well read and how much I emphasize education. The fact that there is an educational subtext in The Apprentice is the reason I agreed to do the show. I wanted there to be some substance along with the entertainment value. People of all ages learn lessons - business and otherwise - from watching and that has been a great source of pride for me.

That's one reason I write essays. They are a quick way to learn a thing or two or at least open the mind to thought. I may be successful already, but I learn something new every day. I also make the effort to learn every day. The theory behind my 'think big' credo is that if you want to build skyscrapers, or if you have big goals, you'd better have a good solid foundation to work from. These essays are one way to get that foundation in place and keep your life moving forward in the best way possible. It works for me, and I would hope it works for you.

Sincerely,

Donald Trump.

Very valuable and practical information

As the owner of a small business, my takeaway is that Trump hits the nail on the head with his knowledge and willingness to share. He wants all to succeed. It's no wonder he defied all the odds to become our 45th president.

An abundance of critical information and insight

When learning to be a success, it is critically important to learn from those that have a long track record of great success. Thankfully, there are some successful people willing to share, at least some of what they've learned with others, in order that more people might have a greater chance of success, as well. Those willing to share positive information; that has the power to change the lives of others and by extension those around them for the better really do help make the world a better place. Success leaves clues, thank you Donald Trump for allowing many people to learn what you are willing to share; that has helped you become such a great example of success, particularly in family and faith and continuing business sucesses and never giving up and overcoming; even when facing odds that would have overwhelmed most others, by never giving up. It is very interesting and motivating and encouraging hear what you are willing to share; including other aspects and ways of thinking that tend toward successful outcomes in different areas of our lives.

Worth your money and the narrator...

he is just simply the best! I hope we get to hear more from you, Mr. Skipp Sudduth!
I've read some reviews of Mr. Steve Job's audiobook version (the narrator is not getting good reviews so far).. they could have picked you as the narrator! They would have definitely loved you!

WHAT?

If you want to get to know someone you will likely never meet in person, the best way is to read what they've written. Donald J. Trump demonstrated here what today's mainstream media do not want you to see: the thinking of the man who has dedicated his entire life to produce the best in whatever field of endeavor he decides to enter, including as President of the United States of America. He will compromise in negotiations but never on the quality of the product at hand. He gives us a great mindset to mimic.
