Roger W. Smith, review of “Trump: The Art of The Deal” by Donald J. Trump

 

The attached downloadable PDF file contains a book review by Roger W. Smith of Donald J. Trump’s bestseller Trump: The Art of the Deal.

The review was written in May 1988 as a journalism school assignment.

(My favorite phrase — of my own, that is — in the review was one I used to describe Trump and his book: “relentlessly prosaic.”)

    I found this really interesting, especially because what you noticed in the book in 1988 still seems to represent the personality of DT.

  2. Thanks, Luanne. Perceptive comment. Good to hear from you.
