However, even billionaires have to start someplace, and this breezy volume gives a glimpse of Trump’s foundations, as well as his fame and charisma. getAbstract likes the mix of practical advice with flashes of the billionaire lifestyle. For instance, one of the book’s strongest features is a diary-style account of a typical week in the author’s life, with his usual bevy of rich celebrities and corporate power brokers.

  • What key attitudes contributed to Trump’s success.
