Joke

This book is yet again another TRUMP book full of useless junk. I actually read the real book and must say he provide little to nothing of any actual detail on how to obtain mass amounts of wealth. I love Trump, but absolutely hate this book. If you want to hear more and more about how Trump is the best at everything buy this, but if you actually want to gain any knowledge, don't.

Last note, I must say this book was entertaining, but for the title it is complete BS. It probably took him one day along with his staff to write this book.

A Great Promoter !

I like Trump, he is a brilliant promoter , even though he claims he is only a builder..The truth is this book contains only 1 hour of how to to be a billionaire , the rest is self promotion. I enjoy listening to him, he is entertaining, that is why his show the Apprentice is so successfull.So if you get a kick out of listening to how The Donald makes phone calls and drops names this is for you.
If not forget it.

Entertaining

As I listen to this book, I picture The Donald dictating from the back of his limo the pearls of wisdom that he has gathered throughout his life. This is not a step-by-step book, but a "how Donald Trump views life" book. The book rambles a bit but is entertaining because it's written as if the author were talking to you directly. Some of the stories and proverbs are built-in advertisements for Mr. Trumps loyal clients. Some of the information is not practical or applicable to the average Joe, but I find myself drawn to Donald's style and charisma.

Balloons fill with hot air

It starts out a great book, just the kind I was looking for. Informative on real estate, while refering to basic underlying skills and behind the scenes experience.

Then the Apprentice came, just like his first book. Man, then it was a week in the life. I'm sorry, bit he is content with sleeping 4 hours and working all day with his money. Maybe he will reorientate his goals later in life, but I don't want to hear about it for half of the book.

Talk more about facts, and what made you a billionaire... less plugs for NBC.

Audio-torture! Don't waste your time...

This book was incredibly painful to listen to. The 'practical tips' are obvious and not useful and the rest of the book consists of a series of narcissistic and smug ramblings that border range from distasteful to pathological. One wonders how many yes-men Trump is surrounded by... a true friend or colleague would have lit fire to the manuscript and told Trump not to make an ass out of himself.

If anyone actually wants to become rich, read The Automatic Millionaire (the author has a painful tone but provides useful information) and Eight Steps to Seven Figures (excellent book). Those books are straight-forward and contain practical information. I became a millionaire after reading those two books and using emigrant-direct.com as a temporary holding bin/ high-interest bank account between investment decisions. Good luck!

The worst business book ever written

This book doesn't teach you anything, it just talk about what Donald Trump likes in his typical self centered and egotistical way.

No knowledge whatsoever here.

Disappointing

I've actually liked several of Trumps books but this one was basically a list of his sponsors as he said that's what he likes and then he talked about The Apprentice for 2 hours, terrible, just terrible book

Pointless Drivel!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who wants to here Trump talk about how great he is, without offering any advice whatsoever, might enjoy this book.

What was most disappointing about Donald J. Trump and Meredith McIver ’s story?

The most disappointing part about about this book is that he jumps from topic to topic completely at random. This book reads like disorganized stream of consciousness. It sounds like Trump is just writing down whatever thought pops into his head.

What didn’t you like about Barry Bostwick’s performance?

Bostwick's performance was okay. It is mainly the content that I take issue with. He did seem to get into an intonation rut that got annoying.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Yes, all three: Anger, Sadness, and Disappointment.

Any additional comments?

I wish I had spent my time reading something else. There are a lot of great books out there that give good advice about how to gain wealth. This is not one of them. Try millionaire mind, millionaire next door, rich dad poor dad, anything dave ramsey, Warren buffet the snowball, etc.

No good

This book is horrible.It provides almost no advice. It is a 5 hour speech on how great Trump thinks he is. No advice, no information. Worthless

How to know what a Billionaire Likes

Terrible book for information, although if you really like Donald Trump on a personal level I guess it would be great. This book is all about what he likes and little, other than his shampoo, can people other than the rich afford. Almost no information to help you succeed.
