Customer Review

on November 8, 2009
I am actually a fan of Ivanka and want to see her succeed in the corporate world. She convinces me that her parents raised her well -- if somewhat unconventionally -- and she has some credible things to say to young people in particular about character. Nonetheless, the great irony of this book is that Ivanka works very hard to establish herself as more than just a beneficiary of nepotism and yet the advice that she offers is not of the caliber expected of someone holding such a lofty title as Vice President of Real Estate Development and Acquisitions for the Trump Organization. In fact, the advice actually begins about midway through the book. The first half mostly concerns her upbringing and could have been published separately under the title "Growing Up Trump." The section on interviewing skills is basic and unoriginal and made me laugh out loud. A quick Google search would reveal the same information -- for free. Although Ivanka alludes to a couple of major successes she has had as VP -- e.g., the Dubai project -- she does not give the reader a clear picture of how she achieved what she claims to have achieved. Chapters ten and eleven read as if written by a silly young girl. Consider this: "Plus, I love and appreciate fine jewelry! What girl doesn't? Especially the daughter of Ivana Trump!" (From chapter eleven.) Not exactly the stuff of a corporate VP. The publisher knew that people would buy the book because of who (a Trump) and what (strikingly beautiful) Ivanka is. However, notwithstanding that this is Ivanka's first literary effort, the book is seriously lacking in professional depth and is, in a nutshell, premature.
