  3. 3. Personal Review: Think Big: Make It Happen in Business andLife by Bill ZankerA book about success, managing and leading ideas has to include TheDonald. This is a very well written book - also a quick and easy read - withmany stories about the greatness of Mr. Trump. And when he feignsmodesty, Bill Zanker, the founder of the Learning Annex, steps up withsome great Trump stories. However, Donald has done and accomplishedmuch - he has been at the top only to fall toward the bottom and then torise up even higher. This alone is an accomplishment that businessmanagers and future leaders should read about and can learn from.The book gives specific circumstances and ways to handle them. TheDonald, being such a well known public figure that always appears to tell itlike it is, brings to the book a familiarity and personality that we know an dcan relate to - even though very few can much the wide breath of Trumpsactivities. Bill Zanker started a small business that grew after he made abold move by paying Donald Trump $1,000,000 to make a presentation athis Learning Annex and promising Tr ump he would deliver 15 to 20 timesmore students than had previously attended a single program.The book is written in a parallel style with Trumps stories and advise andZankers experiences growing his business. I like it - if anything it keepsthe pace moving. The main focus of the book is thinking big, bold and outof the box. The kick ass part is not much of my liking, but because of thegossipy style, keeps the book moving.Some of the specifics in the book are the need to surround yourself withgreat dedicated and bright people, recognize the time that bold moves arenecessary and acting on them, have a passion for what you do,importance of the right timing, using your instincts but only after youvedone all your homework and gathered all your backup support - no onebecomes successful like Trump without planning, preparation and hardwork. Trump uses a quote by golf legend Gary Player who has said "theharder I work, the luckier I get." Not to fall into clichés, some are fullyappropriate and there is a chapter subheading that says "Good luckhappens when opportunity meets preparation."Other things in the book talk about being open to new ideas andopportunities, making learning fun, leveraging momentum, be focused,branding is important - it tells people what to expect and a high end qualitybrand makes it easier to deal, always have a prenuptial agreement - and abusiness shareholders or partners agreement, look successful - how youdress is important, and enjoy what you do.I dont agree with the revenge part of the book. My way of dealing withpeople who screwed me is put them out of my mind and forget about themand not waste any energy on them - except if I cross paths with them in anew deal and then I do what I could to have them not get too far in thatendeavor.
