I agree with a lot of what one of the reviewers here said (5 stars, John J. Rinck, February 14, 2005). I for one, greatly enjoyed the succinct and concise chapters. I prefer the book as it is, as compared to if a ghostwriter had written it (with more "flowery" language, which gives the illusion of getting more bang for your buck).
I find it interesting to note also that all the people blasting Mr. Trump and/or his books...well...*probably* aren't exactly billionaires (or millionaires?).
I enjoyed the "glossy photos" included also. They showcase his success.
Mr. Trump writes at the start: "Even if you absorb only ten percent of the wisdom in this book, you'll still have a good shot at becoming a millionaire."
Advice from other places in the book: "Focus on the solutions, not the problem."
1. Think big
2. Stay focused
3. Be paranoid (keep your guard up)
4. Be passionate
5. Don't ever give up
6. Love what you are doing
I got this book because I enjoyed the introductory material (which I happened to chance upon via Google Books). I am an independent author/publisher/entrepreneur. The going can get tough sometimes. Rather than wallow in self-pity and whine/gripe about things endlessly, I seek out success stories and seek to emulate successful people (it sure beats moping around and complaining about things/life in general).
This book is no exception (success story, etc.). I am thankful to Mr. Trump for sharing a wealth of information, via his thoughts/views!
