The New York Times has produced a book review of Ivanka Trump’s latest work, and it’s not exactly glowing to say the least.
Judd Legum of ThinkProgress sampled it in a tweet, captioning his screenshot of the review with the ironic comment: “Ivanka Trump’s new book didn’t get a great review in the NYT.
Legum is most certainly accurate.
The selection that he posted to Twitter reads, in part:
‘Ms. Trump’s “Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success… reads… like the scrambled Tumblr feed of a demented 12-year-old who just checked out a copy of Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations from the library.’
The rest of the review — which you can read in full at this link — brutally outlines how Ivanka’s book is an attempt on her part to cherry pick components to the legitimate greatness of others and thereby somehow become great.
Ivanka has come under heavy criticism for her book, seeing as, like the NYT review mentions, she’s been associated with some questionably ethical and definitely anti-female equality business practices, such as the denial of maternity leave.
