BOOK REVIEW by OnTheIssues.org:

Well, the best we can say about this book is "it's a heck of lot better than Ilian's other book." His other book, 100 Valuable Leadership Lessons from 10 U.S. Presidents, had the same idea as this book, but in a historical context. The common format is to apply the lessons to today's daily life from business leaders (in this book) or past presidents (in the earlier book). Ilian's level of history put the past president book at a high-school level; this book is perhaps at a college freshman level. The business leaders include:

  • Donald Trump, the reason we read this book; Ilian has some decent pre-election analysis
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger, whom we also excerpt; he is a business leader, according to Ilian, because of his bodybuilding career and his film career.
  • Steve Jobs of Apple Computers
  • Bill Gates of Microsoft
  • Elon Musk of Tesla Motors and SpaceX
  • Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook
  • Oprah Winfrey of OWN Network
  • Richard Branson of Virgin Atlantic airline and Virgin Records
  • Tony Robbins of "Awaken the Giant Within"
  • Warren Buffett of Berkshire Hathaway
We excerpt only from the two political sections; the other eight sections are outside the scope of OnTheIssues. But the two political sections were enjoyable light reading -- not a lot of political insight, and not a lot of "Life and Business Lessons" -- but a nice summary of key events from Trump's and Schwarzenegger's lives.
