Everything you need to know about success, real estate and life!
DONALD J. TRUMP is the very definition of the American success story, continually setting standards of excellence while expanding his interests in real estate, gaming, sports, and entertainment. Trump is the number one New York Times bestselling author of How to Get Rich, The Art of the Deal, Surviving at the Top, The Art of the Comeback, as well as The America We Deserve. All told, these books have sold millions of copies. An ardent philanthropist, Trump is involved with numerous civic and charitable organizations. In June 2000 he received his greatest honor, the Hotel and Real Estate Visionary of the Century award, given by the UJA Federation.
Trump (How To Get Rich) provides his opinions and advice on numerous subjects, many beyond the world of high finance, including picking a mortgage broker, buying and selling a house, and even dressing and grooming for work. Listeners will be attuned to his financial advice on mastering real estate, renovating older buildings, and reading a classified listing for rental property; the author's tips on investing money in stocks and bonds, saving for college, and making luxurious but affordable purchases may appeal to investors. This is a curious mix of clich?s and self-aggrandizement, but Trump's own narrative ability (he reads the introduction) would have prevented actor Barry Bostwick's weak attempt to sound like "The Donald" from coming across as smugly sarcastic. With Trump's financial success and The Apprentice still going strong, expect requests for this one, which genuinely reads better than it sounds.
