From the Impresario of NBCâ€™s hit show The ApprenticeTRUMP ON TRUMP: â€śI like thinking big. I always have. To me itâ€™s very simple: if youâ€™re going to be thinking anyway, you might as well think big.â€ťAnd hereâ€™s how he does it: the art of the deal.Beginning with a week in Trumpâ€™s high-stakes life, Trump: The Art of the Deal gives us Trump in action. We see just how he operates day to dayâ€”how he runs his business and how he runs his lifeâ€”as he chats with friends and family, clashes with enemies, efficiently buys up Atlantic Cityâ€™s top casinos, changes the face of the New York City skyline . . . and plans the tallest building in the world.TRUMP ON TRUMP: â€śI play it very loose. I donâ€™t carry a briefcase. I try not to schedule too many meetings. I leave my door open. . . . I prefer to come to work each day and just see what develops.â€ťEven a maverick plays by rules, and here Trump formulates his own eleven guidelines for success. He isolates the common elements in his greatest deals; he shatters myths (â€śYou donâ€™t necessarily need the best location. What you need is the best dealâ€ť); he names names, spells out the zeros, and fully reveals the deal-makerâ€™s art: from the abandoned property that became the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center to the seedy hotel that became the Grand Hyatt; from the race to rebuild Central Parkâ€™s Wollman Skating Rink to the byzantine saga of the property that became Trump Tower. And throughout, Trump talksâ€”really talksâ€”about how he does it.TRUMP ON TRUMP: â€śI always go into a deal anticipating the worst. If you plan for the worstâ€”if you can live with the worstâ€”the good will always take care of itself.â€ťDonald Trump is blunt, brash, surprisingly old-fashioned in spotsâ€”and always, always an original. Trump: The Art of the Deal is an unguarded look at the mind of a brilliant entrepreneur and an unprecedented education in the art of the deal. Itâ€™s the most streetwise business book there isâ€”and a sizzling read for anyone interested in money and success.From the Hardcover edition.
