Over the years, President Donald Trump has written many bestselling books, but he has also written shorter essays that encompass his philosophy about how to live life to the fullest, both personally and professionally. In these pieces, which have been personally selected by Trump for this book, he gives his special perspective in what amounts to an "informal education" about success in business and in life. With a foreword by Rich Dad, Poor Dad, author Robert Kiyosaki, Trump's business acumen is on full display in such essays as:

*Keep the Big Picture in Mind
*Essays, Assets, and Stephen King
*Imagination: A Key to Financial Savvy
*Financial Literacy
*Think Like a Genius
*How to Get Rich

I became interested in this book after watching Trump being interviewed by Bill O'Reilly. Trump simply defines success. As time marches on, his expanding interests are usually defined as very successful endeavors. Therefore, if you want to learn to cook, listen to a chef. If you want a successful career, listen to Trump. By branding himself, he has at this point in his life, developed the midas touch with real estate, gaming, publishing and basically anything else he sets his eye upon. If you already keep abreast of Trumps past books and other writings, you will find some of this material to be a repeat. Nevertheless, as packaged, it is very relevant, compelling and authoritative. Some of the essays stood out for me. The one titled There Are Times When You Should Move On reminds me of the old cowboy saying - "When your horse dies, get off." My favorites and the ones that I will begin immediately applying were: * Give Your Higher Self a Chance * Strive for Wholeness * Go Against the Tide Taken as a holistic approach, this book - if really applied - can be the start of a person 'creating their own luck' as Trump states. I can recommend it to my friends, not only in the business arena but also in my personal life. I believe they will find strategies and techniques that will spark positive results. I hope you find this review helpful. Michael L. Gooch, SPHR - Author of Wingtips with Spurs: Cowboy Wisdom for Today's Business Leaders

Trump gives practical advice for success, not just financial but also in your personal life. He embodies American spirit and drive and I think his enthusiasm is contagious.

I found this to be a very inspirational book. Who would have thought, coming from Donald Trump. This book has some good insights to the financial ups and downs as well as some financial advice in the form of past experiences.

This book makes you want to succeed if you've been too afraid to try. I think it's a great motivation for anyone wanting more for themselves and their family. Donald has no problem telling people how he sees things. We need a president with Donald's character, rather than the suck-ups we're forced to endure.

Donald Trump does it again! Authors write because they feel the need to express with others something they have learned, taught, experienced, created, or just want to Help people grow. Dondald Trump is saying go against the tide and he's right,because what he's really expressing, is to be yourself, follow in your own footsteps and don't be afraid to follow what's in your heart. I would buy any one of Donald Trump's books because his passion behind his work is truly inspirational and helpful. Hats off to a man who wants to better the world! "Think Like A Champion," is a wonderful read that will get you thinking, motivate you to live your dreams, and help you to understand that challenges in life are always going to arise, it's up to you to learn how to master the art of winning these battles!

As a fan of Donald Trump, I thoroughly enjoy everything he writes. And this book is no exception. It's a quick BUT INFORMATIVE read. Read this book.

I used to admire Trump, but now it seems like he is just spitting out book after book with the same old stories and hype. He is just trying to create an image for himself. I tend to agree with Mark Cuban when he said, if Trump is really a billionair then why does he need to keep doing these books. I think he has cheapend his brand by putting out so many books in a short period of time. He must need the money. He doesn't even write these books,a co-writer does all the work. What does he know about being a champing, he's got two x-wives and business' that are failing all the time. Don't waist anymore money on his books they are the same thing over and over.
