“Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success” is now available for purchase.
Although its been on the market for only a few hours now, Ivanka’s haters are already attacking it in full force.
One “customer” wrote today on the book’s Amazon page:
What a hot, flaming sack of garbage. Ivanka talks about ‘survival mode’ as a week when she can’t get a massage. She has no concept of what reality looks like for working women.
Another, by a person who goes by Ali, is titled “She is the last person who knows about what it means to really work”:
She is a woman of privilege. Much of what she says is moot to the women who did not go through life with a silver spoon in hand. Would be much more credible coming from a woman who is a self made success.
Also, I find it interesting that it says a portion of proceeds from this book will be donated to charities committed to empowering and educating women and girls. Ivanka, wouldn’t you do more for woman and girls who want to work if you convinced your father to keep Michelle Obama’s Let Girls Learn initiative???
The New York Times reviewer goes a little softer in its critique, writing that “the book is not really offensive so much as witlessly derivative.” Meanwhile, the reviewer for U.S. News & World Report doesn’t hold back, subtitling her piece: “Ivanka Trump’s new book is completely out of touch with the obstacles working women face.”
One can only imagine how many more anti-Ivanka sentiments will emerge as the day progresses, and more lefties realize Ms. Trump’s book is out.
As of this writing “Women Who Work” only has two positive reviews on its Amazon page. Unsurprisingly, one of the 5-star reviews is the only review that is by someone who made a “verified purchase.” The review was titled “Loved it!”:
The book is a great guide for any woman wanting solutions, tips, education, insight and knowledge of how to try and have it all. It really had some great information about how a leader’s creative actions speak louder than having to follow so much red tape hindering professional and personal growth. It’s classic example of micromanaging vs. macromanaging through policies and procedures.
Reminded me how we teach the kids now to “pass test” when we should be feeding their individuality to be the best perskn they can be. This book spoke to me and made me feel empowered to set my own standards in how I balance my multiple roles as a mother, wife, daughter, Hispanic, US citizen, and many more.
I also loved reading more about what shaped Ms. Ivanka Trump to be who she is today. To have had such a strong mother as a great example can really put pressure on one to follow and, in my opinion, you have done fabulous.
But back to subject, I agree I am growing and learning. I don’t need to limit myself to what is expected or the “rules” set by those around me. I need to lead by example and be my best self by starting by understanding myself. What are my priorities? What do I want to accomplish in life? Who matters most to me? What matters most to me? What are my passions?
Alice Myers, another reviewer, said “Women Who Work” is “Compelling, powerful, and insightful!!”:
Love reading about successful women! Ivanka is a role model for women and men and how to have an impactful career, this is a great read!
We will be sure to keep an eye on what folks are saying about “Women Who Work.” Ivanka Trump’s first book, “The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life” was a New York Times bestseller.
