“It Is Really Vapid,” Critics Slam Ivanka Trump’s New Book, It’s Brutal

The first princess has released a new book and the reviews and they are brutal. Granted the book has only been out for 48 hours, “Women Who Work: Redefining the Rules for Success,” reviews are in and the critics aren’t receiving it well at all.

In fact, the New York Times’ Jennifer Senior said Ivanka book was “Witlessly derivative. Emily Peck of HuffPost said it was “A grab-bag of generic work-life advice.”  “It is really vapid,” is all  Slate’s Michelle Goldberg could say about the book.

And those are just a few.  Moreover, CNN reports that the book actually currently has 1.2 stars on And  58% of readers on Amazon gave the book one star.

The Trump family is, of course, promoting the book.

I’m so proud of my big sister @IvankaTrump on the launch of her #WomenWhoWorkBook! I can’t wait to start reading it! 📖

Ivanka Trump posted on Facebook the following statement, which she said she would not use her official role to promote the book.

“In light of government ethics rules, I want to be clear that this book is a personal project. I wrote it at a different time in my life, from the perspective of an executive and an entrepreneur, and the manuscript was completed before the election last November. Out of an abundance of caution and to avoid the appearance of using my official role to promote the book, I will not publicize the book through a promotional tour or media appearances.”

Do you believe her?
