Ivanka Trump, daughter of President Donald Trump, is an entrepreneur, sometime-presidential adviser, and now author. "Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success" came out on May 2, and Mike Opelka finds the current 81 Amazon reviews intriguing.
Today on "Pure Opelka," Mike analyzed how the reviews break down and felt they say more about the state of the country than the quality of the book. Forty-three percent of them are 5 stars, which is the highest rating given on Amazon. Fifty-three percent are only 1 star.
Of those that give just 1 star, they said the book is vapid, criticizing her disclosure that she was unable to find time to get a massage or do yoga during her father's campaign.
He then turned to the 5 star reviews. One was from a female urologist who said 90% of her profession is male. She deeply appreciated the concept that there is "no such thing as balance." She described the book as sophisticated and spot on, agreeing that old feminist ways don't work in a male dominated field.
These reviews seem to be of completely different books. Mike concluded that readers who like Trump will probably like the book. Those who voted for Hillary Clinton will hate it without even reading it, even though a minimum of $425,000 from the profits will be donated to charities that empower women and girls.
