Impressive

I was actually quite impressed with Ivanka's book. She is not the typical rich-girl with a famous last name, a la Paris Hilton, who waits for a trust fund to kick in while she parties. Ivanka actually worked hard for what she has, and learned valueable lessons along the way. I recommend this book to anyone that wants to make a name for themselves in business.

Disappointment and waste of money

I was very curious about this book. I love Ivanka's classy style and the fact that she is actually a smart business woman and is different from the rest of the spoiled crowd of the rich elite.
However, this book didn't bring anything new for me and was actually very unpleasant to listen. Ivanka sounded as a very self-centered, "I'm just so good at everything", arrogant type of person.

And the Reader did a perfect job bringing that message through the tone of her voice and intonation which made me want to turn shut this annoying woman and turn off Audible as soon as I'd start listening (just because I had to finish the book as I felt bad wasting money on it).
