BOOK REVIEW by OnTheIssues.org:

This book is half autobiography and half business advice. In How to Get Rich, Trump illustrates his business endeavors and techniques, as well as his values and lifestyle.

This book is filled with managerial anecdotes and financing advice. It is written in a motivational and instructional style, The book is after all titled: How to Get Rich. Trump shares his tricks of negotiation, advice on hiring and firing, and explains technique to successfully ask for a raise. Tips like these are scattered amongst biographical facts throughout the book. The book is somewhat scattered and lacking order in that regard, but has a flow and readability to it. There is a entire chapter dedicated to his hair, of course, that is almost to have been expected.

While How to Get Rich is not a political book and was published long before any talk of his Presidential bid, this book gives insight to how Trump conducts business and views the world.

-- Patrick Carpenter, OnTheIssues editor, August 2019
