First he made five billion dollars.

Then he made The Apprentice.

Now The Donald shows you how to make a fortune, Trump style.

HOW TO GET RICH

Real estate titan, bestselling author, and TV impresario Donald J. Trump reveals the secrets of his success in this candid and unprecedented book of business wisdom and advice. Over the years, everyone has urged Trump to write on this subject, but it wasn’t until NBC and executive producer Mark Burnett asked him to star in The Apprentice that he realized just how hungry people are to learn how great personal wealth is created and first-class businesses are run. Thousands applied to be Trump’s apprentice, and millions have been watching the program, making it the highest rated debut of the season.

In Trump: How To Get Rich, Trump tells all–about the lessons learned from The Apprentice, his real estate empire, his position as head of the 20,000-member Trump Organization, and his most important role, as a father who has successfully taught his children the value of money and hard work.

With his characteristic brass and smarts, Trump offers insights on how to

• invest wisely

• impress the boss and get a raise

• manage a business efficiently

• hire, motivate, and fire employees

• negotiate anything

• maintain the quality of your brand

• think big and live large

Plus, The Donald tells all on the art of the hair!

With his luxury buildings, award-winning golf courses, high-stakes casinos, and glamorous beauty pageants, Donald J. Trump is one of a kind in American business. Every day, he lives the American dream. Now he shows you how it’s done, in this rollicking, inspirational, and illuminating behind-the-scenes story of invaluable lessons and rich rewards.

Review:

"With a central role in NBC's The Apprentice, Trump's star is soaring. In his fifth book (after The Art of the Deal, he offers a cursory glance behind the scenes of the hit reality show, but the bulk of the text consists of business advice ('Be Tenacious'; 'Play Golf'; 'Be Optimistic, but Always Be Prepared for the Worst') with illustrative details culled from his real estate and media dealings. (The glimpses he presents of his transformation of 40 Wall Street hint at a story that might deserve a more serious book all its own.) There are some surprises; at times, the quintessential New Yorker sounds almost like a California New Ager as he recommends up to three hours of quiet reflection a day along with the writings of Carl Jung. But he's soon back in recognizable form, advising readers to 'screw enemies back' and explaining why various people (including former governor Mario Cuomo and talk-show host Joy Behar) are dead to him. Trump appears comfortable with himself, and he even makes light of potentially touchy subjects, such as his hair: 'My hair is one hundred percent mine. No animals have been harmed in the creation of my hairstyle.' There are occasional missteps, like an imitation of the New York Post's iconic gossip column 'Page Six,' which reads more like an annual Trump Christmas letter. But Trump's books have done an effective job of capturing his grand personality in print, and this volume is no exception. B&w photos throughout.

This easy to read business book is too simple. It is broken into 1-2 page segments all concerning a different topic. The book does not fulfill its title and lacks in content about anything. Instead, Donald Trump just talks about himself and how he hates to shake hands. I would skip this book and his book called, "How to Think Like a Billionaire." I would have thought he could have hired a better writer (or had a better one on staff) to make his books a hit.
