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. It's now one of Inc. magazine's 500 Fastest Growing Companies for the second straight year, with over $100 million in sales. Together, they think BIG!

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.

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.

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.
