Excellent Summary of the Problems We Face Today 7 Dec. 2011
By R. Baum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Trump's book is outstanding at summarizing the problems our country faces today. I was impressed well he underlined the seriousness of our problem: we are a debtor nation that has run up more debt during the current administration than in all our country's previous history-- yet we have a current government that is more interested in expanding its own programs, power and political base than dealing with this serious situation. The current Administration may argue it was necessary bailing out the 1%, namely Wall Street and the Banks, plus the Auto Industry to save us from an even worse recession. Donald Trump makes me realize our magnitude of debt is so that history may show we actually took the cowardly path in using debt for bailouts-- rather than deal with the problem and take the pain here and now, we have elected to borrow our way to a soft landing and pass the costs of our current recession to future generations. How would we have dealt with today's recession if our forebears had structured World War II's costs such that we were still paying for the war in 2011? Future generations will have no autonomy to deal with their own problems because they will be paying off the problems we have today. That is why it is simply reckless to further expand government programs and institute national health care when no level of tax increases can finance our current level of government spending. No level of government initiative will ever allow us to reach the utopia that supporters of government expansion seek. I spent many years living in Eastern Europe where everyone already has "free" health care that no one given private care alternatives wants to use.

WOW... GREAT Read! Trump at his BEST! 6 Dec. 2011
By FSU2000 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I Actually READ the Book...

This new little stunt where liberal groups send out an email blast commanding their minions to go bomb Amazon ratings with 1-star reviews is as immature as it is revealing about the follower mentality of modern liberalism.

So here's a review from someone who actually READ the book. In fact, I will include page references to prove as much.

"Time to Get Tough" by Donald Trump is, without question, Trump's best and most impressive book to date. The writing leaps off the page and is the most serious, thoughtful book Trump has yet published. The writing is bold, clear, and surprisingly packed with details on specific policies and how we can save America from the mess Obama has made of the country.

One of the most impressive features of the book is the 15 pages of endnotes it contains. Again, because I actually READ the book (unlike the little liberal 1-star brigade), I will give you the exact amount of endnotes, which is a jaw dropping 243 sources found on pages 193-207.

Those who see Trump on TV will be impressed with the depth of detail and policy recommendations he makes in this book. He comes across as a serious, thoughtful man who loves America. In fact, had he published "Time to Get Tough" sooner, it's likely his run for the White House would have produced major momentum.

The most powerful chapters are chapter 2 "Take the Oil," chapter 5 "A Government We Can Afford," and chapter 7 "A Safety Net, Not a Hammock" (great chapter title).

On page 12, in chapter 2 "Take the Oil," Trump advocates a cost-sharing plan that our own Government Accountability Office (GAO) says would be a wise way to have Iraq share the costs of liberation. It would divert a portion of oil profits to the American families of soldiers, sailors, airmen, or Marines who have lost loved ones or have been wounded from the war in Iraq. It would also help defray the costs to the taxpayers. It's a brilliant idea that few people know about. Trump deserves credit for bringing it to light.

On page 67, chapter 5 "A Government We Can Afford," Trump begins a discussion of the massive spending and government waste in our system. He starts the chapter with this eye-popping statistic: "Every day, your government takes in $6 billion in revenue and spends $10 billion. That means every day the federal government has to borrow $4 billion more than it has." That chapter is as eye-opening as any I've ever read and contains numerous, detailed policy solutions for how to get our fiscal house back in order. Again, kudos to Trump.

Finally, on page 113, chapter 7, "A Safety Net, Not a Hammock," Donald Trump goes into impressive detail about what the Wall Street Journal has dubbed the "Food Stamp Crime Wave." This part of the book enraged me; knowing how many people are suffering in this economy, it was repulsive to see how many people are bilking the system and selling food stamps they don't qualify for on Craigslist, Facebook, and elsewhere.

"Time to Get Tough" is without a doubt Donald Trump's best book and one packed with practical, serious policies to fix our crumbling country. But you have to buy it and actually READ it to know that.

Trump is Right, we are losing the country! 6 Dec. 2011
By Steven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
From an objective standpoint, most of the reviewers on here couldn't strike a negotiating deal if their careers depended on it.

Despite Trump's own self-promoting ego and business shortcomings, he has worked hard to make himself a household name across america, Unfortunately, many great business leaders that our country has seen have gone bankrupt. Does anyone remember Walt Disney and his numerous bankruptcies during the two decades prior to opening Disneyland? Anyway, even the most well known Presidents and business leaders didn't always have great financial success during their careers before they became famous.

Trump is no different.

With this book Trump highlights just about everything that most intelligent thinking voters have been shouting in their heads for years! If we don't get some serious leadership at the top, we might as well kiss the country goodbye. Leadership is about making smart business choices and being smart about how to fight wars and win them. Without that attitude, America would've never become the nation it has or Hitler or Stalin would've succeeded.

Trump in this book offers a real alternative, that pulls no punches. His views step on people's ego's and puts liberals in their place. The fact is on the issues, nobody can prove that Trump is wrong in a one on one debate, much like JFK. With Gasoline Prices and Federal Trade Imbalances, along with exploding National Debt, Trump offers real solutions that frankly will upset people, but unless we start talking about the truth that makes us all angry we're never gonna have the standard of living our parents and grandparents had.

Save us Mr. Trump!

A Book Everyone Should Read and Share 17 Dec. 2011
By Anne Cooke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was very enlightening for me in two ways. Unfortunately there are some very bad things happening with our government and has been happening for some time now. The current administration is determined to take this country down and Mr. Trump has made it very clear. Rather than just making statements he has presented a very good case with footnoted quotes from reports from various entities not just spouting things "they" said. If you want to read more about his statements the footnote identifies where it came from and you can research it yourself. The news is not good and if corrective action isn't achieved within the next 11 months the America we knew and loved will likely not exist in the very near future.
My second surprise was to learn more about Mr. Trump. I had always had the impression that he was just "a real estate guy" who made some good deals and got lucky. It wasn't luck, the man is very intelligent and knows what it takes to be successful.
This book is at the top of my list of books to share with everyone I know! After I read it a second time though.

Make up your own mind.. 7 Dec. 2011
By Bernice B. Aronold - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Why has AMAZON let itself be used by the extremists of the political left to prevent freedom of speeh by printing obviously political statements rather than actual book reviews?

The reviews should be a guide to help people choose a book. In future, please delete comments of professional bloggers that obviously haven't read the book.
