In 1987, the book The Art of the Deal elevated Donald Trump from playboy developer to best-selling author.
From the opening paragraph of Trump's self-portrait as a shrewd and creative dealmaker:
"I don't do it for the money. I've got enough, much more than I'll ever need. I do it to do it. Deals are my art form. Other people paint beautifully on canvas or write wonderful poetry. I like making deals, preferably big deals. That's how I get my kicks."
