Donald Trump’s new book â€œHow To Get Richâ€ is a great read but it doesnâ€™t really tell you how to get rich. Instead itâ€™s a book in which Donald Trump offers practical, and many would argue good advice.
Donald Trump is a billionaire and the star of the hit TV show â€œThe Apprenticeâ€. In this book he offers advice on a variety of subjects including leadership, hiring staff, job interviews, salary negotiation and deal making. He also offers advice that you wouldnâ€™t normally find in any other book. For instance, Trump advises his readers to play golf because he believes it improves peopleâ€™s business skills and because it gives â€œâ€¦you an equilibrium that you canâ€™t always find in the officeâ€¦â€.
In other chapters he advises people to read the books of psychologist Carl Jung, while in others he advises that people should have an ego so that they have a â€œâ€¦sense of purposeâ€¦â€. In other chapters he explains that he doesnâ€™t shake peopleâ€™s hands because â€œâ€¦this is how germs are spreadâ€¦â€.
One of the chapters in the book covers a week in the life of Donald Trump. This is a fascinating read and only reinforces the notion that regardless of your social status, most people are really busy when they are at work!
Another great chapter of the book is dedicated to the TV show â€œThe Apprenticeâ€. This chapter outlines how the show was conceived and produced. It also provides an overview of the audition process and Trumpâ€™s opinion of each contestant in the show.
On a personal level, I really enjoyed Donald Trumpâ€™s advice on positive thinking and teaching children the value of money.
Overall this book is excellent. The writing style is succinct and very indicative of the way Trump talks (you know what I mean if you watched the show!). You wonâ€™t get rich by reading this book but you can incorporate Donald Trumpâ€™s practical advice to suit your goals and ambitionsâ€¦. and if that means that you want to be richâ€¦. go for it!
