Thats a shame how all these President Trump haters are taking it out on his daughter. They are all bullies. every last one of them. She probably works harder in one hour than them loosers do in an entire day. I thought the book was very good and well thought out. Gave very interesting tips on how to maneuver in the business world while being a mother. I bet most of these reviews didn't even read the book because if they did and honestly reviewed it they would give it 5 stars.

I gave this book a try. Wish I didn't. The writing (possibly ghost-written?) came off pretentious. In order to take this book seriously, you have to pretend you come from an elite background, because otherwise, most of this stuff just won't work for the common person. Overall, I can't take this book seriously. What a joke. Now to find a halfway-decent business book. The search continues...

Ivanka shares her strategies and insights she has learned through the years of living a fullfilling life at work and at home.

I am in my early twenties and just starting my own career, which is why I bought this book. I found her advice to be quite interesting and I loved reading about her personal experiences, although there were more quotes in the book than I personally prefer. As a young woman I look up to Ivanka, especially in a world full of Kardashian's and Miley Cyrus'. Don't let other people's hatred for the Trump family stop you from giving this book a try.

Ivanka Trump is a strong smart "lady" that stands up for women. Instead of women bashing her they should stand beside her and realize she is a force for good. The women that bash are just envious.

The very premise of this book not only insinuates that women who work WANT to work (studies show women are more unhappy than ever after decades of feminism), but that women who work are the only ones worthy of being addressed by Mrs. Kushner. The author comes across as a woman supremacist, not someone who wants equality (which has already been achieved in the West). From complaining about the horrors of having to temporarily forego getting massages during the time she forced herself into her dad's campaign, or praising her husband for his ability to learn about Middle East geo-politics while waiting for his ski lift, it is clear that Mrs. Kushner is far removed from/out of touch with the average woman (working or not). Mrs. Kushner has been given an opportunity that only a handful out of 7 billion people get to experience - much of her "advice" will not be even remotely applicable or possible for women who are not daughters of well-connected billionaires. Like it or not, Mrs. Kushner wouldn't be where she is without her dad's guidance and resources, yet does not dedicate the book to him (or Ivana her mother). It is insulting that this princess thinks she can pretend to have ever worked hard for/struggled for anything, and can tell others about working as if she's some expert, when she has maids taking care of her kids/house/etc. Mrs. Kushner should have the grace to butt out of her dad's administration (like the other Trump kids). It's becoming more and more clear she's only there because she is her dad's favorite child, just like everything else she has done.

Read the book. Don't let the "Trump" haters influence your choice. I am not sure they even read it. This book is interesting. Ivanka is a well educated young women who worked hard for her success. Now that her father is president, some people will use this site to place unfair reviews. All of a sudden they are writing horrible reviews because they don't like her father.

I have read books on business and business management since my college days - which is decades ago. This book surpasses even the perspective of "Lean In". Ivanka has an outlook that breezes through complexities. She brings in multiple sources to coach women in all different aspects of a career. Her suggestions are appropriate for my daughter who works in corporate Manhattan. I am using her advice for hiring people and customizing contracts in my business. Women do need to take a different approach to being aggressive and Ivanka is an expert at being aggressive in a feminine way. In this book she shares her skills with her readers. This book is not for everyone. It is for women who take life seriously and want to make the most out of their lives without sacrificing their feminine traits. Here is one of my favorite quotes: "The bottom line is, we are happier, more effective, and more productive, when surrounded by smart, creative, hardworking people."

You can really see how closed minded some people are! You are rating her because she is a Trump and not because she is a shining example of class and intelligence! I am sure the one stars with no comments are from people who didn't even read the book.

Bought this book at the local Barnes and Noble and really enjoyed it. Years ago I read The Art Of the Deal and learned so much for my own business, so unlike most of the commentators here I actually read this book. It is a shame that all these people who are leaving these negative comments didn't bother to read the book they might learn something.

I LOVE this book. I think Ivanka does an amazing job at providing great advice. As a working woman of America, her book inspires me to keep pushing in my writing career and to make things happen for myself. I think Ivanka is a very successful woman and it's amazing that she's using her platform to provide advice to women who work. Ivanka's book is motivational, life-changing, and one of the best investments of my life. Thank you Ivanka for all that you do. You are a phenomenal role model to women. Keep writing and ignore the haters!!

I rate Ivanka's book as "poor", because poor Ivanka, amirite? Ivanka does so much for herse-I mean, others, and people are such meanies with their constructive criticism and dissent! All Ivanka wanted to do..was just make money off of sweatshop workers that she empowered, just like the rabbits she empowered by robbing them of their fur (so her customers can look chik). Who cares if her sweatshop workers make $1/hour, the equivalent of a chip off of Ivanka's nail polish! Did Ivanka empower children to develop a sense of work ethic, by exploiting child labour for her jewelry line? Likely. That jewelry was sold to some countries where girls as young as Arabella suffer Female Genital Mutilation. What, you expect Ivanka to speak out against these abuses or advocate change? That's not even a priority. Besides, it's Ivanka who benefits, and she's Trump's daughter, so it's OK! Ivanka worked so hard bossing her employees around - in her airconditioned office built by her inferiors (working class men). She had a hard time struggling to fit in her many photo shoots, spa sessions, and chill time with her elite media and politician friends to discuss "favors". So what if she might have stolen a few people's fashion ideas? Daddy's Princess Incarnate is a great role model for women and girls to look up to and emulate. Even though Ivanka could leave work early, or just skip work entirely and get her roots done that day, it's ok because Ivanka has her Daddy wrapped around her manicured finger. Daddy doesn't dare displease the princess by ever disagreeing with her, making her fit to lead and never power-hungry. Being the golden child is enough qualification to have a job telling the President what he should do on geopolitics, military strikes, the economy etc. because it's Ivanka, like, duh! Her Daddy still gives her everything she demands, just like when she was 5, regardless of the consequences (even if the country is put 2nd). Ladies, that is real empowerment! Ivanka doesn't know what the word "no" means because she's never heard it before - same with that big word "complicit". That's because she's cool and knowing what stuff means is for loser nerds. Ivanka cares so much about the world and is wise. Ivanka won't house refugees in her own spacious home, nor will she stop using her private jet that she simultaneously believes contributes to climate change, because leading by example is for the little people. Women and girls obviously cannot make their own decisions, or work hard/earn money for themselves. So Mother Ivanka will make sure to tip the scales in females' favor, by forcing legislation through that will put women in STEM jobs, whether they want it or not. It's not like Ivanka will have to do that boring STEM stuff anyway, lol. The opportunity to boost her own reputation and prove herself to others obviously didn't even come to Ivanka's brilliant mind. Now, thanks to Ivanka, women will just now enter the STEM fields for the first time. Thanks for your generous help, Ivanka, all those women couldn't have done it without you! Such an inspiration! One could only hope to be her personal foot-rest! After reading her book the next thing I knew, money grew on trees and everyone existed just to serve me! Dissent should be banned! Dear Leader Ivanka will tell you how to live your life, and you will like it! Buy her "empowerment" in book form so you can enrich her and her foundation, and don't you dare ask any questions about where the money goes!

Ivanka is just as out of touch and unlikeable as the Clintons (and is friends with Chelsea Clinton). Not a fan of this "empowering women" cliché leftwing nonsense, even lefties don't like Ivanka. No amount of fake positive reviews will undo the damage Ivanka is doing to her own image.

A lot left out. The book didn't mention: - using your daughter's singing in a different language to charm a communist dictator, so that your brand's trademarks are passed in China, and you profit from millions of new customers - marrying someone who has ties to Nazi collaborator George Soros (60 Minutes interview), who funded husband Jared's real estate Cadre for $250 million - not going into fashion/design school yet sells clothes that the author may or may not have designed herself (allegations of stealing other designers' ideas) - using rabbit fur for your brand's products, while getting rich from sweatshop labor - selling jewelry line in places that stone women, perform genital mutilation, among many other severe human rights abuses; while staying silent on those issues..for certain rea$on$

Yawn. After reading, in sum, it turns out that no rules are being rewritten in the book, just "life advice" that has been rehashed time and again for decades. Ivanka isn't exactly self-made, so she's not some authority on writing rules to begin with.

I read some of it so far, and thought "yeah right, keep dreamin". Even other billionaires can write books that are more relatable to the average person. I've decided to just return this book and spend my hard-earned money on better things. Would not recommend this book. Also, global so-called charities rarely benefit anyone (besides the ones at the top of course), much less our beautiful nation.

How can Ivanka Trump even know what it's like to be a working-class woman...seriously she was born with a silver spoon in her mouth, which makes her unable to fully understand what she's talking about.

A friend of a friend lent this book. I thought it was worth a try. Wrong! Without giving away spoilers, I'll just say that marrying rich and/or being born into wealth rarely makes someone worthy of being able to understand what hard work is, or be able to empathize with those who struggle in some way (living on a budget, not having a nanny, etc.) This book is for those in dreamland, not the harsh everyday world where no one treats you like a princess. In this case, Ivanka seems too detached from us commoners that her advice only works on those with wealth and/or extreme charisma. Politically she's unpopular on both the left and the right (and in-between). Not sure why Ivanka is only donating some of the proceeds to her charity, she could just hand over her own money if the cause is that important to her.
