You don't really have to read this book to know what I'm going to say about it. You probably don't even want to know; you're more curious why I would spend my precious time and be seen in public reading then-27-year-old Ivanka Trump's "business memoir." I was curious, I guess? I like celebrity memoirs? Hate reading her book makes me feel superior to her and her unctuous father?
As her introduction (referring to her privilege) is titled, "Get Over It." I read it, and Ivanka isn't the worst writer. I mean, obviously she's a horrible person, but her writing is readable enough. Disappointingly, there's no photo spread. Isn't the cover photo with her lips slightly parted hilarious, though?
I dogeared a dozen pages (I'm a horrible person, too, especially because it's a library book), but I'll spare you all the examples of how Ivanka and all the Trumps, past and present (looking at Ivana) are super ignorant and gross. Ask me about the lemonade stand, though, next time you see me in person or on IM, since I know everyone who reads this blog.
She does say one thing that I like--that multitasking leads to what she refers to as "'junior moments,' when younger executives momentarily lose their place because they have one conversation going on in their ear, another at their fingertips, and still another across the conference table."
