“How to Get Rich” – Donald Trump and Meredith McIver

My thoughts on the ‘How to get rich’, Book about/by ‘Donald Trump’

I saw this book at CIBF (Colombo International Book Fair) in 2017. This book immediately caught my attention and title could be a one of the reason. Also, there is Trump’s quote in the book – “Five billion reasons why you should read this book”. This is the economy edition of the original book, So it doesn’t have the colored images. If I am not mistaken this was priced under 1000 LKR. This was first published in 2004 by Ballantine Books. This has around 300 pages with 06 chapters.

From the readers perspective when I bought this, I was expecting to read some insight information on how he(trump) made the deals. 

I also think chapter arrangement could have been better. Sometimes it feels that chapters added without any proper sequence. It feels that he is explaining a bunch of his life stories. This is not by far the best book I have read. but this could be an interesting book for those who like autobiographies/biographies.

Everyone will not like this book, the way he writes/ or the way he explains things. Most of the examples in this book are about Trump’s personal experiences. How he works / How he manages things etc. This book is written in a unique way (Trump’s way).

My rating for the book is 5/10.


My thoughts on the ‘How to get rich’, Book about/by ‘Donald Trump’

Right folks, This is some random thought that came into my mind which I am executing. Reviewing a book requires an enormous amount of knowledge in books. I am not an expert critic. But this is my attempt to tell about certain books. More importantly how I feel after reading a book.

I love reading anything. I was a bookworm when I was in the school. I have missed reading books last couple of years. I usually spend a few thousand rupees each year to buy books ( which I tried to reduce from this year onward ). Colombo International Book Fair is one of most important event that I am not trying to miss on each year. Big Bad Wolf is also becoming to be a competitor.

My interest has changed from fiction to biographic recently. Following visionary leaders could be the reason for this. Big Bad Wolf 2018 edition had lots of biographic, I got a couple of them.
This doesn’t mean that I have stopped reading fictions. I still love reading them whenever I got a chance. Dan Brown is still my favorite author to the date.

Also, I love to read books about Buddhism. I have a collection of books about various topics taught in Buddhism.

Right now I am reading a book called “How to get rich” By Donald Trump and Meredith McIver. I have purchased this on Colombo International Book Fair two year back. I will share my thoughts on next post.
