Trump: Think Like a Billionaire : Everything You Need to Know About Success, Real Estate, and Life
It's not good enough to want it. You've got to know how to get it. Real estate titan, bestselling author, and TV star Donald J. Trump is the man to teach you the billionaire mind-set-how to think about money, career skills, and life. 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. He'll also teach you how to impress anyone, how to correct or criticize someone effectively, and how to know if your friends are loyal-everything you need to know to get ahead. 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.
Trump (How To Get Rich) provides his opinions and advice on numerous subjects, many beyond the world of high finance, including picking a mortgage broker, buying and selling a house, and even dressing and grooming for work. Listeners will be attuned to his financial advice on mastering real estate, renovating older buildings, and reading a classified listing for rental property; the author's tips on investing money in stocks and bonds, saving for college, and making luxurious but affordable purchases may appeal to investors. This is a curious mix of clich�s and self-aggrandizement, but Trump's own narrative ability (he reads the introduction) would have prevented actor Barry Bostwick's weak attempt to sound like "The Donald" from coming across as smugly sarcastic. With Trump's financial success and The Apprentice still going strong, expect requests for this one, which genuinely reads better than it sounds.
