Trump, and he's going to reveal to listeners the secrets to succeeding like he has in Think BIG and Kick Ass in Business and Life. His co-author is Bill Zanker, CEO of the Learning Annex, which he started with $5,000 in Bar Mitzvah money.

Get some steel in your backbone the Trump way!

As you'd expect this is a straight talking, no nonsense listen that is unconventional and in places hilariously ruthless in tone.

This has absolutely zero fluff and ideal for a business owner looking for hints, some steel in their backbone and a kick up the backside. His style takes no prisoners and is backed by up-to-date and relevant anecdotes.

Trump takes no prisoners as he takes you on a journey through some fundamental business behaviors.

Think Above Mediocrity

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I think this book is the perfect book for any young professional who is seeking that motivation, that inspiration and that assurance to push forward and achieve their goals and fulfill their destiny. So yes, I would recommend this book to my friends, in fact I have already.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Think BIG and Kick Ass in Business and Life?

The most memorable moments in this books is where Bill Zanker shared with us that when He is going to a business meeting, He wears an expensive suit and takes $5,000 in his pocket as this provide him with the motivation he needs and put a pep in his step, giving him that air of confidence that He needs to exude at the meeting to conquer any deal.

Which character – as performed by Donald J. Trump and Alan Sklar – was your favourite?

Their weren't any characters in the book, however, I was inspired by Donald Trump himself and how he got gritty and to the point and opened himself up to us, so that we too could feel as though regardless of where we are from, once you Think Big and believe in your destiny and your dreams, you can achieve them.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Your destiny is within reach, get up and grasp them.

Any additional comments?

Some persons may think this book is pointless, or that Donald Trump was rude and obnoxious, but the truth of the matter is, that sometimes we need people like Donald Trump to wake us up and put us on the right track so that we can stop living in a bubble of our insecurities and short comings and stretch to that place that make our goals attainable... I love this book, it was right after I read this book, I sat and wrote my scholarship letter because I know that I am worth it and I will achieve it because I believe in the power of my destiny.

A peek at Trump's worldview, but left empty

Is there anything you would change about this book?

It is not clear from the book that you are really only getting about 50% of the book from Trump, with the other half "written" by Bill Zanker. Truth be told, I ended up actually enjoying some of the Zanker material more than the Trump material, but that wasn't clear when using my credit.

What did you take away from Think BIG and Kick Ass in Business and Life that you can apply to your work?

If you want to be successful in business, you kinda have to be a dick.

Any additional comments?

On the whole, I don't believe my credit was wasted, it was an interesting look at two men's take on success in business, but for someone looking for a good business book, I would check out Millionaire Mind and Good To Great first before even considering this book.

We all take advice from successful millionaires. But how often can we take an advice from a billionaire? You need to read this book, there is a self-assessment test in the begging. It's important you pass it, because I'm sure most people will fail. Once you read it, unless you are an idiot, you will have what it takes to pass the test.
Also I highly recommend Anthony Robbins 30 day audio program called Personal Power, Time of your life, Art of Influence, and of course, Creating lasting change. Just keep at it, and it takes 30 days to build a habit of learning 15-30 min a day forever.
