President Donald J. Trump lays out his professional and personal worldview in this classic work—a firsthand account of the rise of America’s foremost deal-maker.

“I like thinking big. I always have. To me it’s very simple: If you’re going to be thinking anyway, you might as well think big.”—Donald J. Trump

Here is Trump in action—how he runs his organization and how he runs his life—as he meets the people he needs to meet, chats with family and friends, clashes with enemies, and challenges conventional thinking. But even a maverick plays by rules, and Trump has formulated time-tested guidelines for success. He isolates the common elements in his greatest accomplishments; he shatters myths; he names names, spells out the zeros, and fully reveals the deal-maker’s art. And throughout, Trump talks—really talks—about how he does it. Trump: The Art of the Deal is an unguarded look at the mind of a brilliant entrepreneur—the ultimate read for anyone interested in the man behind the spotlight.

  • Great book

    By Aksudnfhurhdhcbwo
    Very good book. Maybe the only one of it's type. It doesn't give you a bunch of successful business tips you need to follow, instead it gives insight into Trump's mind and the actual actions he took, and what resulted from them. In my opinion it's the best way to learn to be a better business person.

    Being from New York. I was always interested in the man. The book captures his large persona and makes you believe in the American dream. As only President Trump can. Excellent. My only wish is I read this earlier I'm life and ordered a hard copy.
  • The American Reality

    By L D Herring
    Great book on how to do business in America. Mr Trump not only tells the reader how to be successful in big city real estate development, he points out how to maneuver through government and financial red tape to close the deal and make it happen...

    Sensational and a must read for anyone who wants to better understand our President and what really motivates him!
  • Piece of his mind

    By Veritè
    Lacks the actual art of the deal but what I noticed is how a great promoter he is. A literal embodiment of larger than life personality and everything that he is.

  • An Omen of Trumps Future

    By Techjunkieboy
    Given current events and Donald trumps president elect status, the words in this book that were written nearly 30 years ago in the "what's next" section are very foretelling ... I for one am optimistic for the future of the US after reading this book!!
