Trump's story begins when many real estate moguls went belly-up in what he calls the Great Depression of 1990. Trump reveals how he renegotiated millions of dollars in bank loans and survived the recession, paving the way for a resurgence, during which he built the most successful casino operation in Atlantic City, broke ground on one of the biggest and most lucrative development projects ever undertaken in New York City, and outsmarted one of South America's richest men for rights to the Miss Universe pageant. Blunt, outrageous, smart as hell, and full of hilarious stories--check out his chapter "The Art of the Prenuptial Agreement"--Trump tells it like it is: the women in his life; the wild and woolly deals; negotiating tactics; his investment philosophy; and his strategy for success or coming back from adversity. Whether you love him or hate him, one thing is certain about Donald Trump: He is a true American original, with great instincts and billion-dollar dreams. "The Art of the Comeback" is Trump at his best--unpredictable, irreverent, and irrepressible.

If you've watched Apprentice, seen his Roast, or know anything about Donald Trump, you know he likes being on the top. This book was written after the markets crumbled in the late 80s and early 90s, leaving many high-riders of the Reagan era broke and left by the side of the road.
Trump takes great pride in pointing out that the crumbling markets never beat him, noting that at one point he was humbled as he pointed out that a homeless man was a billion dollars richer than he.
Inspirational, funny, and clearly triumphant, this book is enjoyable if you enjoy The Donald's style: Brash, bold, and confident.
