    I see this book as another step in the path I began with Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now. Each book is full of enthusiasm for passion, innovation, and discovery. Each champions humility, curiosity, and new beginnings. The love of mystery that keeps us exploring, a healthy sense of wonder, the specialness of each day. Reaching your authentic best by living in the present, taking responsibility for your own fate, pursuing an unrestricted life.

Each book is full of enthusiasm for passion, innovation, and discovery. Each champions humility, curiosity, and new beginnings. The love of mystery that keeps us exploring, a healthy sense of wonder, the specialness of each day. Reaching your authentic best by living in the present, taking responsibility for your own fate, pursuing an unrestricted life. True success is freedom, which means finding your own path, setting your own standards, choosing your own purpose. Enjoying what you do and sharing that conviction, no matter what it happens to be. However, the Trump book's focus is also on the hard work, dedication, and steady pursuit of progress necessary to bring about one's dreams, which is an important distinction. To “think big” means to read widely, pay attention to new developments, and learn to think on your feet. And so he appeals more to our shared capacity for reason, preparation, and knowledge of our craft, showing how these ingredients for a successful life are essentially the same for artists and entrepreneurs alike. Success can be a lot of different things, achievement is ultimately a very personal concept, and in the end it's our independence and integrity that makes it meaningful. I'm often inspired by New Spirituality or self-help books but not quite sure how to implement those insights each day in an ongoing way. And the tendency to be self-obsessed is not necessarily in my best interests. I like the wisdom of this book's basic attitude: “Take your work seriously, take yourself less seriously.” Here is a book that invokes and I believe successfully applies Emerson, Einstein, Confucius, Thoreau, Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, and others, but in the name of being more personable on the job, realistic about the ways of business, and mindful of the ways that genius is achieved and maintained through constant effort, openness to new ideas, and always setting new challenges so as to keep growing. At the same time I'm wary of the narrow, workaholic mentality. Of the ever-occupied mind. Of the personal sacrifices that are ultimately required in the name of professionalism and positive thinking. And of bad taste. Also I think there's room for growth not covered here. Those areas where concerted effort can actually preclude the satisfaction of one's aims. For example I suspect that vulnerability, intimacy, and emotional depth are the kinds of things that aren't built up like a building or a bank account, and which take a special form of surrender to achieve and maintain. But then I realize the writing here also has confidence that its readers are interested in bettering themselves – why else would they be reading his book? And since my interest is the personal / spiritual / existential journey, what I receive from Think Like a Champion is validation of those passions, encouragement to keep doing that which drives me, and with even more of my energies and resources this time. (Although the book's advice to diversify one's economic portfolio will continue to elude me.) So I'm glad for this book. I have a lot to learn about working with a team while simultaneously developing a healthy mistrust of others. And often it's my own fears that keep me from taking risks, accepting responsibility, or being successful. Trump's books offer page after page of practical, commonsense advice which has been very helpful for me in terms of overcoming obstacles at work and in life. I'm reassured by his long experience with mistakes and failures as a natural and necessary aspect of growth, by his faith in the power of stubborn persistence, and the wisdom of minding every last detail of a project. Trump's books are quick to point out that something worth doing is worth doing right. Also the style is a great lesson in itself – straight and simple; direct and blunt; thoughts, words, and actions aligned; focused on finding areas of agreement in the name of moving forward.

    After reading just a few pages, I could not continue. The compilation of interesting but irrelevant information is a poor excuse of a book. It was as exciting as randomly opening up an encyclopedia that had a few details about Trumps life in each entry.

    Of himself Trump says, people like me because I'm blunt, people dislike me because I'm blunt. That direct communication style works for him as he writes simply, with great self belief and without redundancy. Each chapter is full of great insights into the philosophy and mindset of one who could very well be the future President of the United States. (I'm not interested in what others think of Donald Trump, I'll make up my own mind on that score.)

    I finish this book as Trump’s letter to the leader of Turkey has gone public and is receiving world wide ridicule...we are living in the Twilight Zone. Dear extraterrestrials. Send help.

    My motivation was that he became a U.S. president. I first read 'make America Great again', it didn't deviate much from his recent videos on Youtube. This book 'think like a champion' is a much better book compared to above, and may also be a great self-help book, and it offers some perspective onto Donald Trump's personal values. He sounds like a great person in this book, whereas in his book 'art of deal', I got an impression that he is nasty and unforgiving.

    A great, inspirational and practical book that I plan to purchase for my 13-year-old. The Donald speaks in very short sentences but that belies his grasp of what 19s important and his ability to communicate it to those willing to listen. This series of essays covers everything important in how to approach your working life.

    A good book, written by the president of the United States, which gives you a vast amount of motivation and advice. However, the only feature I did not like in the book was the abundance of self-praise. All in all, if you are free, I advise you to go through the pages of the book.

Outlines importance of living life with enthusiasm. Things occur unexpectedly therefore make sure when these happens deal with these with positivity. Do what you say and say what you do. Put these in harmony your life will be better. Equally be wary that other people often will not do this. See things that you don't know as learning opportunities. Take challenges, try to be prepared and learn about things but you cant wait until everything is perfect. Learning is extremely important and emphasised throughout book. Don't think you know it all. Instead take the opportunity to turn every day into a great day, keep your sense of humour & be able to laugh at yourself. Be personable but don't take things personally. Think about the audience, know them focus on their wants rather than yours & you won't feel nerves. Trust or at least notice what your gut feeling is & consider what it is telling you. Hold yourself to your own standards. Never put all 100% of your assets in one basket / with one person. Don't follow the crowd (otherwise you will be mediocre), but realise what they are doing. Make your own path. Love what you do- passion is key to get through inevitable challenges. Be well prepared by being highly efficient, monitor your use of time. Work with people that you like. Every hire is a gamble. A good manager looks for positive traits of people that they work with (i.e. if you don't at first like them focus upon the good things).

    Why would I want to listen to what Trump has to say? After all, he was called ‘racist’, ‘big mouth’ and ‘bullies’ by many people. When it was announced that he will go for US presidential candidate many people like George Clooney, Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders and even Tun Mahathir laughed out loud during their interviews. “Donald Trump will never be a president!” they said with exactness.

I might agree with some of the criticisms that people say about him (I also agree when he says that there are “fake news” in the media) but from the success and creative perspectives, I see that Donald Trump really practice what he wrote in this book (8 years later) by thinking like a champion – and that’s why I read this book. By the way, where are those whose laughing at him now?

    I really enjoyed this book. I wasn't expecting the short chapters at first, but Donald Trump did an excellent job with each topic he touched on. He managed to fill every chapter with insightful information that was backed by wisdom and years of experience. Most, if not all, of the quotes at the beginning of every chapter were wonderful quotes that inspire and make you reflect on your goals and personal self.

    I wanted to read at least one book by the two presidential candidates, and this was the first book I found. It was an easy read, and there was nothing new or creative in it to inspire me to think like a champion in any new way. In my opinion, it was written to sell copies, because he has popularity.

    Never was one who likes motivational books of how to be a success or healthy or whatever. Never believed such things. I read this out of curiosity to see how this guy thinks. Most are general ideas, but you have to admit that there are pretty good ideas, and they do apply to his work and character, without including the flaws he might have.

    It is a collection of essays wrote by Trump about life, business, his personality and tendencies, and values. Readers can read in any way they want to as each essay is not bound by previous ones making it an easy and quick read-type of book. The bad part of this book is exactly because it is a collection of short essay readers shouldn't expect an in-depth analysis of ideas and thoughts.

    I simply enjoy reading his thought process and kudos to his father for kept writing him good quotes and Donald Trump being an obedient son not only reading those quotes but seek to apply them in his life. I jotted down all those quotes and seek ways to apply them in my life. As well as you are what you eat, it's certainly the same goes to you are what you think.

    Wow, I've to got to say that this book surprised me a lot. First I had no Idea that Trump was a smart man, I've always seen him as a fool. Maybe because of the media or something. But anyways, this book is quite interesting as it makes us reflect about choices and passion. I have to say that I enjoyed it!

    Not sure about the quality of the full book, since it seems this was an abridged version that I read. Each chapter seemed very superficial and overly obvious, like "good things are good, bad things are bad, do good things and avoid bad things". I hope the abridgement is the reason for this impression, I might revisit the original edition some day.

    As an very successful entrepreneur who also work in many other fields, Donald J. Trump shared his abundant experences in this book. Reading it, we can get much knowledge about business, how to improve yourself, how to have success in career and in life,.... It's a good book in my shelf.

    This was an interesting look at the strategies that President Trump feels shaped his success. Self-aggrandizing at times (as most books like this have to be, I suppose), it was a fascinating look into his mindset and path to a notable career in business and politics.

    This is the first book that I read writing by Donald Trump. I must say that I really like it. It has some generic advises to achieve what you really want in your professional life. There are some parts that I really love and I'll probably read it again.

    Ong Jason

    Great book with many short essays of about a few pages each. Many good nugget of wisdoms but I think this book should be combined with his Think like a Billionaire and The art of the deal to know Trump's style more clearly and deeply.
