If this book were a Donald Trump building, it would have a bright central atrium and lots of interesting side chambers for wandering. The main lobby is Trump’s charm and fabulous lifestyle, but the hallways wander into very practical and sometimes dull areas where – although it is quite nice to have a billionaire’s advice – your garden variety millionaire could probably fill you in: how to rent an apartment, how to find an attorney, how to monitor your finances and so forth. 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. After that, who wouldn’t want to be a billionaire?
In this summary, you will learn
- What Donald Trump advises on various aspects of doing business, from renting an apartment to negotiating a mortgage;
- How to think like a billionaire, Trump-style; and
- What key attitudes contributed to Trump’s success.
