As the US election draws near, the number of articles on Trump and related topics is reaching stratospheric level. Today’s needull is a slightly older piece by John Kay.
While writing the book, I posed the following question for myself. ‘Of all well-known and successful business people, who is the one most obviously obsessed by money? ‘ And I immediately thought of the star of the American version of The Apprentice – Donald Trump. I followed up this inspiration by importing from the United States a second hand copy of Trump’s autobiography The Art of the Deal (The book was published in 1987, when Trump was barely 40, and was in those days, but sadly no longer, out of print.)
