Anyone thinking they can read a book and have it give you exact detailed steps on how to get rich, better wake up. Authors like Trump and Kiyosaki can tell us what has happened in their own lives, and about situations that helped them become rich. But they can't make us grow a backbone, be creative, or start taking risks. That it is up to us! We can use their books and articles to help guide us in the right direction, but in the end it is up to us. This book was an amazing comeback story and it does give SOME practical examples and situations that we might try to attempt and follow if we have the guts to do so.
I believe people should make their own decisions in life. Don't let negative people / reviewers hold you back from taking a step that could possibly make you grow.
The first half of this audio book was good advice, but the last half of it was entertaining filler. I agree with one of the previous reviewers. You can get all the advice in the world, but you still need to grow a pair and act. I think if you listen to enough of these audiobooks you begin to see a pattern of the characteristics needed to succeed. See what works for you and do it!
I was diappointed. I expected some good tips on how to get rich. None really given. Its all about trump talking about himself and how great he is. It was boring. The only interesting thing was a week in the life of trump. Wow! No real substance, no real advise, if you want to know more about trump get it. If you want to get rich, this is not the book.
Trump did it again!
Although this book isn't for everyone, it IS for Donald Trump appreciators. At first, this book seems like a mess of Donald talking about himself again. Maybe that's why this got an average so far, of only 2 stars. BUT, DON'T LET THAT FOOL YOU! The book really has to be analyzed "between the lines." In otherwords, if one looks at this as just a book, it's terrible. However, if it is used as a reference and reviewed MORE than just once, I found it a very valuable resource and very informative. Don't forget to
read his "week" journal!
The forward was read by Trump and it was cool to be talked to by him... I was disappointed that he didn't narrate the entire book.
Entertaining, but no substance. Agree with other reviews that he spends a lot of time name dropping and talking about how wonderful he is. Turned off by his advice that verbally abusing people and vendication are the right way to do business. WOW -- you can tell he has always had a lot of money and never suffered to gain his position. Pathetic somehow, but worth listening to if you want to learn what makes him tick.
This really isn't a bad book. He gives alot of good pointers on how to deal with various types of people. He also gives his 2 cents on on how to do business in the real world. If you pay attention to the the points you will learn something. It was fun to listen to the stories also.
I have listened to worse books. If you like Donald Trump and his "tell it like it is" attitude then you will like this book. If you don't, then don't get it.
Fun! Mr. Trump is no Napoleon Hill but I enjoyed his amusing tales. It may not be about how to make money but it does give some great advice on the type of people to be surrounded by to be successful.
It was tough giving this book one star. This book is nothing but five hours of "The Donald" patting himself on the back and dropping names. The title "How to Get Rich" is funny because there is absolutely no information on how to get rich. Don't waste your time.
I read that this book was not worth anyone's time, but I had to get it anyway. Now that I did, I totally agree.
"The Donald", as he likes to call himself, basically brags about his accomplishments for 5 hours. He explains how his golf courses are the best in the world, and how he never shakes hands because of germs. I know that this is listed under the Business category, but it's not. Nothing you will learn here will help you become rich.
One cannot argue with his success, but he's not an advocate of humility. The book caused me to wonder how the people who surround Mr. Trump view him absent their motives to keep him on their side?
The 'Donald' is always entertaining and knows how to make money...great business wisdom...rent this!
I really enjoyed this book. I am in the Development business and found Donald Trump to be interesting. I typically would not take some of his adive like how he makes deals because I feel he is a little bit harsh in his philosophy but I think some of his management ideas are interesting.
Hmm... they got the title wrong on this one. It should be called " I'm Donald Trump and for the next five hours I'll tell you how much I've accomplished while taking some shots at the people who've ticked me off". While I am a fan of Trump, this book seems more like a tribute to himself rather than a 'how to'. It's kind of like a continuation or a re-written version of "Art of the Deal". I was a little disappointed.
