Considered the “magnum opus”of Trump’s writing and philosophy, and one which gives lucid characterizations of how Trump thinks, acts, and parses through his interpersonal relationships. The premise of the book lies on Trump’s credibility as a businessman, and his presumed business acumen for negotiation. After reading “Art of the Deal,” you’ll get an up close and personal seat into the actual psyche of Donald Trump, with notable revelations about critical thought such as: “I don’t hire a lot of number-crunchers, and I don’t trust fancy marketing surveys. I do my own surveys and draw my own conclusions.” Turns out those number-crunchers are the least of one’s worries when you have to worry about your own personal lawyer backstabbing you while you try to double down on important strategic decisions and toe an incredibly thin political line.
When it comes to deals and radical change, Trump makes it clear he is no stranger. Taking a page out of his strategic repertoire enlightens readers regarding a number of tactics ranging from using inventive slogans for his detractors and opponents, to effective branding shown through the bright red colored MAGA hats of its supporters, to his initiation of a trade war with China, and finally to his arguable destabilization of the previous image and reputation of the United States (i.e. breaking away from Iran Deal and peace with North Korea) internationally. Following in the footsteps of distinguished former Presidents and their respective administrations before him, Trump sticks to strong personal and business or professional philosophy, one that he now presumably uses to prioritize the interests of the American people.
Take a dive into Donald Trump’s unabashed, unafraid, and as some of his critics might say, unhinged principles in “The Art of the Deal.”
