Almost immediately after Ivanka Trump released her new book Women Who Work: Revisiting the Rules For Success, the delightfully savage reviews arrived to greet it. The self-help tome has been described by critics as both “witless” and “insufferable,” “vapid and “very vapid,” “a strawberry milkshake of inspirational quotes” and “a grab-bag of generic work-life advice for upper-middle-class white women.”
Apparently, a guidebook of rules for success it is not.
So it’s no surprise that a vigilante bookstore patron took it upon her- or himself to “fix” a recent display of Women Who Work. Instead of several copies of Trump’s latest title, the new arrangement showcases a few other suggested reads underneath the banner “Revisiting the Rules for Success.” They include Children of The Self-Absorbed, Disarming the Narcissist and Toxic Parents: Overcoming Their Hurtful Legacy and Reclaiming Your Life.
While some online sleuths have guessed the new book display is the work of a rogue librarian, judging by the 20-percent-off sticker peeking out from beneath the carefully chosen books, all we can say is that the display appears to be located at an undisclosed Barnes & Noble.
B&N vigilante, whoever you are: Your work has not gone unnoticed.
