How to Get Rich

coverHow to Get Rich
Donald Trump

Attractive title, isn’t it? And probably accurate, as well. But nothing new there: what it tells you, in short, is to do what you love, love what you do, and work your a** off at it. A good portion of the book consists mostly of relatively common sense tips that anyone should already know (anyone who’s in business, at least). But, granted, sometimes people forget things and need to be reminded of them.

This is not to say that this is a bad or useless book. The book is interesting, reads well, and is full of “Trump philosophy” bits that make it interesting. And, by the way, apparently Trump is exactly the way he acts on The Apprentice. The book was written after (or during?) the first season of the show, and it also contains some information on the show production.

There is a very long chapter at the end about “a week in the life of The Donald” which is kind of interesting. Even though lots of entries do seem like he’s “name dropping”; does that really meet Sandra Bullock, Elton John, Bill Clinton and other celebrities every week?
