Interesting, but not very helpful

The positive of this book is the fascination of hearing all about Trump's deals and how his out-of-the-box thinking gets him great deals and makes him lots of money. The negative is that everything is on such a large scale that it's hard to apply to most small investors.

I think the intention of the book was to use Trump as an example and show how to apply his ideas to the small investor. For me, personally, a lot of those concepts were over my head, but what I did get out of the book was motivation and inspiration. So I would recommend the book more on entertainment value than educational value.

So so not my first choice

The first half is just examples of what Trump has done in the past but doesn't have much to do with the average investor. It mostly applies to big-time commercial investors but doesn't really get into much detail. The second half has more applicable tips to use in real estate.

Not very practical

It says it can be for smaller investors but it really isn't. just a bunch of Trump deal case studies.

Solid Strategy with a Fascinating Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Trump Strategies for Real Estate to be better than the print version?

The book stresses strategy, but also addresses a lot of negotiating tactics as well. The book's written by George Ross, a long-time business associate and attorney for Donald Trump. It is solid and full of ideas we can put to work in business and especially in real estate investment. The key is always: "how do I add value?" Without an solid business answer to that question, the rest of the strategy rests on sand. But there are lots of other strategic and tactical ideas that the author covers in a systematic and clear manner.

Along the way, you get to know both Donald Trump. I was rather neutral on Trump before I read the book, but I come away with a new found and deep respect for the main's integrity, creativity and entrepreneurship. He's the real deal and it's a pleasure to understand how he thinks about real estate, investments and people.

Frustratingly Similar to Trump Style Negotiation

I liked Trump Style Negotiation, but this book was almost the exact same. It had the exact same stories with a few tweaks. I felt like I bought the same book twice.

Maybe over my head

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Maybe

What about Alan Nebelthau’s performance did you like?

Yes

Could you see Trump Strategies for Real Estate being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Maybe... He is an interesting man.

Any additional comments?

I was looking for general facts on how to handle different problems and to help improve myself. This book was stories about their working relationship and how they both handle different scenarios. Maybe above my hand.
