What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Praise for The Real Trump Deal
“Donald Trump’s entire persona is wrapped up in his belief that he is the best negotiator ever. Whether or not he wrote any part of The Art of the Deal, it has become his personal bible of negotiation. What kind of a negotiator is
Trump? How much of the puffery is real, and how much is fake? How does his success—and lack thereof—in the business world translate into negotiating skill and power in the White House? These questions are answered powerfully and systematically in this readable and cogent book.”
— Norman J. Ornstein, Resident Scholar, American Enterprise Institute
Co-Author of The New York Times Bestseller One Nation After Trump

“With this book, Marty Latz has done us an intensely valuable service—carefully sifting through and assessing all the claims, hoopla, and evidence surrounding
