Here is crucial advice on investing in real estate from the expert, everything from dealing with brokers to renovating to assessing the value of property, buying and selling, and securing a mortgage. Trump will show you how to cut costs, decide how much risk to assume in your investments, and divide up your portfolio.

And once you’ve earned your money, you’ve got to learn to spend it well. Trump presents his consumer guide to the best things in life, from wine to golf clubs to engagement rings. Check out the billionaire lifestyle–how they shop and what they buy. Even if you’re not superwealthy, you can afford many of these luxuries.

This book is a very interesting and informing book. This book taught me the most important steps in investing in many different things. This book also gave many facts about the real estate market, and things to watch out for. Trump explains the importance of consulting a broker before making an investment. He also emphasizes that having a broker handle your portfolio is a great idea. He expresses that negotiating a deal is also very important, because you always want to get the most of your money, and the more you save on a deal is the more you make. This is an excellent book that will teach you many different things that you probably didn't know. I suggest this book to everyone who asks me about it, and I will suggest it to you.

I just recently read this book and thought it was overall a C+ to a B. It lacked certain issues that could have been presented. Trump mostly chats about his successes and his attractive wife. Although he does demonstrate some good points here and there, the book was missing something. Yes, Trump has been quite successful, but he has gone through hardships too, which he left out. He made it seem like becoming a billionaire is the easiest thing to do. Easier said than done Trump.

The thing I enjoy about reading Mr. Trump's books is that they are very revealing ... he tells the secrets of how he became successful. He tells you what to do and what not to do. I believe if you want to become successful, you need to study and follow successful people. Read this book. http://www.photographybyski.com

This book does a good job highlighting certain aspects of Donald Trump's lifestyle. Formatted for an easy/quick read, each chapter covers two pages or less. Thinking like a billionaire requires creativity. Here in this book you may discover a small trail of that which at least points out to you where to start, although you may get or feel 'Trumpmarized' by him constantly reminding you of his brand. Trump, in my opinion, only scratches the surface in writing about the title of the book. He is very frugal with his words of wisdom. If you want to be a billionaire, you will definitely need to go through more volumes of material and books and painstaking experiences then just reading this book only. If he is going to endorse books like this, he should quit calling himself an author. Mediocre material such as you find in this book does not live up to his moniker. Do not expect to think, act, breath, or even become a billionaire by reading this book.

Reading this book is like having a personal conversation with Donald Trump himself. He is holding the torch of the value system that made America great, ready to pass it on to those who understand what it's all about. ¿Money may not grow from trees, but it does grow from talent, hard work and brains.¿ In all essence Donald Trump in his own unique way is saying exactly what JFK said decades ago: Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country. A must read for every entrepreneur who treasures the free market. He sure got me on a roll and I am loving it.

Don't let the cover of this book mislead you, it contains little if anything you need to know. Lets you take a look at one Billionaire¿s Agenda. Full of business cliché (i.e. dress for success, work at a job you like, do your homework, be honest), loaded with obsequious promotions and endorsements for every product he represents. Is not a book on how to buy real estate or how to become a Billionaire or how to develop successful business strategy and planning skills. If you are looking for substance, then you will be DISAPPOINTED. However, if you like the Apprentice and need to know what happens next, then read the second half of the book. Not a financial reference but if you must read something written by Donald Trumps, Save your money and go to library.

If this book were a Donald Trump building, it would have a bright central atrium and lots of interesting side chambers for wandering. The main lobby is Trump's charm and fabulous lifestyle, but the hallways wander into very practical and sometimes dull areas where ¬¿ although it is quite nice to have a billionaire's advice ¿ your garden variety millionaire could probably fill you in: how to rent an apartment, how to find an attorney, how to monitor your finances and so forth. However, even billionaires have to start someplace, and this breezy volume gives a glimpse of Trump's foundations, as well as his fame and charisma. We like the mix of practical advice with flashes of the billionaire lifestyle. For instance, one of the book's strongest features is a diary-style account of a typical week in the author's life, with his usual bevy of rich celebrities and corporate power brokers. After that, who wouldn't want to be a billionaire?

This was the first Trump book I have purchased. I was entertained by the first couple of chapters and to be candid...the rest is Trump tooting his own horn. Yes, he is amazingly successful, but I was deceived by what I thought I was buying. The book talks mostly about the Apprentice and not thinking like a billionaire

Here's the deal...after being impressed by Trump's magical, 'art of the deal,' I am left suprised by this pathetic mess. Self-indulgent which is normal and expected, but also full of fluff and little substance--very little. If repitious babble regarding his conquests with The Apprentice is your bag, buy this book.

I had not read any of Trump's books before but decided to give this one a shot. Overall, it was a decent book but it does not contain a lot of content as far as the 'hows and whys' of becoming a billionare. Most of the topics are covered within a couple of pages and don't delve into alot of details of why Donald thinks this is a good way of thinking. In short, alot of the material he covers is common sense! The book does have some generalized good points but I think myself and other people added to Trump's wealth simply by buying his book that really doesn't compare to other self-improvement books I've read. If you're a trump fan or need a book to carry around to read on a plane ride, this might be a good choice. I wouldn't consider it if you'd like to get to the nitty gritty of how to REALLY make money, though!
