I just got some books I ordered delivered! (yay). One of the books was (The president's) Donald trump's "Art of the Deal". I bought it because I really was interested in knowing how he thinks and how the future will pan out to be (because he really loves and values his book saying stuff like "it's not as good as the bible, it's the second best book in the world" (or something along those lines) and seem to really think that it's his "life-work"). And I got to say that I really like the book! ...just simply likes it. And I think it's a very special book and I'll explain a bit more about the reasons here in this comment:

1) (by the language and the style it is written) It speaks very clear to you, like "straight to the face". It's like he's saying "This is how I think, and what I have experienced, and therefore I believe that this is true".
2) It is written in very simple language. We've all heard the stuff that "Trump speaks like 4th-grader", and well, he does so in this book as well. But I think the reason to that is so that all people who want read it should be able to. Unlike some more academic books, in which you can "drown in the text" because those are written in such complicated language that it just takes too much energy to read them.
3) It really does capture a "never-ending topic" - Deals (Which I think is closely related to words such as negotiations, socialisation, friendship, partnership, agreements etc). And I think the book does so by really trying to get to the core of what a deal is, without any fancy articulations, romanizations, or any type of "fancy langue use", instead it just tells you "What is a deal" and how to "get along". Plain and simple.

And I just read a bit in chapter 2 "Trump Cards - The elements of the deal". In which, to conclude the chapter, he talks about how You can be successful and reach your goals and while doing so managing deals with other parties. It's kind of a "You vs The Society" idea. How both you and other people can live in harmony and be successful. And his approach to this is "egocentrical" and his ideas is "liberalistic" in the way that he believes that you have to create your own future (not the society or some government) but you. And if you were unsuccessful in your life, then you have all the responsibility. And that the government only should create "a playground" and that the people should be "the real stars" aka "the players" and government should just watch by as the "people" is supposed to be in the center.

And in the chapter he discusses "Trump Cards", aka "Abilities", that can help you achieve success. And I don't want to get in to the details (as I'm only explaining the idea of his book here) but those things include: being social, never put all your money into 1 bet, always look forward, and lol the best and the last one and my favorite one "Having Fun"!

Tbh pretty funny and charming little book. But in all honesty almost like a really cliche "How to be Happy"-book. If you really care about "being successful", "achieving your maximal potential", "Being a businessman" or maybe (and really importantly) "Understanding the times we live in right now", than I'd say that it I'd a worthy reading and a book for you. But if you're feeling fine, living a great life, or on the other side living a miserable life and feeling really sad, and have no ideas of "striving higher" or "changing yourself" I'd not recommend this book - as it won't just simply suit you.

The "incoherent rambling" trait seems to have been a strong, impressible, theme as well.

I already knew about the "glances at smudged writing on hand" joke. I just didn't expect it.

Fuck logic, that shit is boring, lame and does not always support my opinions.

Dudeman

Okay, the smudged writing part was completely borrowed, but I came up with the Threehee part myself. It's probably been used elsewhere before but I wasn't taking that from anywhere. (For the record, I used that exact same joke a few weeks ago on a different Touhou rip, but I don't remember which one.)
