This book is awful. I've read a fair number of business books - many of which I've enjoyed - and wouldn't recommend this one. The upside is that it's a short read, and perhaps useful for a teenager getting started in the working world. Most of the advice is precisely what you would expect: somewhere between Chicken Soup for the Soul and a "10 Ways to Succeed in Business!" Buzzfeed article. Those who are professionals won't glean anything from this, other than a few interesting anecdotes from oth...
January 6, [email protected] off and die already.if i had a tweeter account, i'd gladly lose my "privileges" to use it just to send those words to it (aka TheRump, aka the walking anus in chief)
I inadvertently got sucked into this one. Some good take-home messages. But embarassing to read on the subway.
Had I known up front that this book was a collection of 100 plus disparate pieces of advice from various business leaders with merely a three-page long introduction by the famed Donald Trump, I would have managed my expectations appropriately.
Only read the short ones - because "if your success advice won't fit on a business card...
The title is definitely misleading. This book is a compilation of business advice from CEOs and leaders of many different companies, of various lengths. It is basically a hodge podge of quotations and positivity along the lines of "don't give up", "keep it simple", "be true to yourself", "know your market", "take chances", "hire the right people". Trump only provided a preface and I feel like this was a money grab, that would sell becasue of the face and name on the cover, and his associations w...
Clearly predictive of Twitter, some compressed thoughts by Donald Trump of proverbs/stories passed on by some of the most successful people in America. While there was a lot of obvious to me at least advice, there were a couple of intriguing ones as well. The idea of at least trying to get the good stuff from the too-successful-to-care class down to the working joe (at a small profit) is laudable, and it seems to have paid dividends for Trump.notable points: * fact:opinion::dividend:stock share

I wouldn’t call Trump the “author” of this book. Literally a collection of quotes from business associates, often the same message repeated throughout the book. Some decent, basic advice for anyone starting out in business, but definitely not a must-read.
Не веднъж съм казвал, че не харесвам книгите, в които са събрани златни мъдрости. Тази книга обаче е една идея по-различна от повечето подобни сборници, защото съветите не са дадени от личностите, които ги споделят, а са дадени на тях самите.
yeh it bin prety gud
For anyone into business or already owning one. This is full of advice from creators and ceos of big named companies that will prove usefull no matter what.
This is basically a bunch of quotes from business tycoons that Trump put his name on. Don't waste your time.
RNC never would have thought The Donald could win the GOP nomination. He did. I thought I should dig into the mind of the person. In this book he cites business and career advice he has received from various leaders and some of them are worth noting.(view spoiler)[Investigate future bosses: what they can teach and how they are perceived in the organization.Performing above expectations involves working on business building initiatives in the spare time. Stick to the business you know - the grass...
"Never take a job just for the money, for soon, like every living organism, you'll live beyond your means and you'll probably be miserable in your job. Always strive to take a job doing something you truly love to do. If it's money you seek, it will come to you in barrels-full, because if you love what you do, you'll no doubt do it very well and folks who want the best will beat your door down to employ you." (Jack Valenti: Donald J. Trump, Trump: The Way to the Top: The Best Business Advice I E...
This is a compilation of advice from different businessmen. The business advice is mostly vague and anecdotal. I wouldn’t recommend reading this book for any reason whatsoever. Examples of chapter summaries include, “never lose perspective”, “Sometimes nothing needs to be said.” “Encourage and involve employees,” etc. Each chapter, written by a different business person, contains some anecdote which illustrates the title of the chapter. Donald Trump didn’t write anything except the intro, which
Trump, with his attorney, Bernard Diamond, and coordinator, Norma Foerderer, has leveraged contacts, friendships and clout, and collected pearls of wisdom from over 153 business leaders.Trump implores the readers to learn from their own experiences, as well as the experiences of these leaders. A good read...but the book gives only "tidbits"...terabytes rather than the meat...but makes you "hungry for more, more more".Great addition to a read list by a successful Gazillionaire who has built empir...
Though this book is chock-full of both anecdotes and detailed life lessons, it is incomplete. One would expect that an author would expound on how he learned from advice he received. Mr. Trump, however, only wrote the entirety of two pages in his book. Indeed, he wrote the preface. Perhaps the work could be better coined a "compilation".
Collection of short thoughts from some of the most successful business people in the world. Basically answering the question, 'What one thing would you say was the key to your success?'. Interesting insights...later I may add a few of my favorite...
Because of I still haven't had a proper business by myself.. (even now..).. I just read this book as a 'entertaining' book, not as my unliving-mentor. But I guess I'll open this book again when I must take some important decisions in the future..
I liked the business advice from the different business leaders. Very interesting.
not quite what i was expecting.
I loved hearing about his business struggles and failures. He's an entertainer.
This is a great book the advises are straight forward and encouraging. Being the best requires an individual to be bold and consistant to purpose.
some good advice from top business leaders around the world. I like that each page is a separate anecdote from a different executive; can be read out of order or consulted sporadically.
Jangan melakukan hal tidak disukai apabila kita tidak ingin diperlakukan dengan cara yang sama . Jujurlah senantiasa , kebohonganakan mengakibatkan hal yang tidak diinginkan .
