Donald Trump’s “The Art of the Deal” was a bestseller in 1987. The book explains an approach to deal making the president has deployed in the White House. Because the political and business worlds are very different, Trump’s strategies have not always translated well. Dr. Taylor makes the case that although they are not well-suited to some kinds of political deals, the president has found surprising success making others.
