If you read my blog post on Sunday about Ivanka Trump‘s best-seller, Women Who Work, you are aware that it debuted at # 1 on the Wall Street Journal business list.

I reported that it was # 253 in total book sales on Amazon.com. In less than two days, the book is acting like a rock sinking to the bottom of the ocean. As of this writing, it is now at # 699 in total books, but is still in the top ten of two sub-categories.
I will be interested to see if the book goes completely OFF the list this weekend. Can a book that enters at # 1 be so bad that it is no longer even a substantial seller just one week later?
Let’s find out on Saturday.
Ivanka Trump‘s new book, torched its way to the very top of the Wall Street Journal business best-seller list (May 13-14, 2017, p. C12). It is the first time that I ever remember a book debuting on the list at #1.
The book is entitled Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success (New York: Portfolio). It was released on May 2.
As of this writing, it is # 253 on the Amazon.com all-books sold list, and in the top 20 in three sub-categories. Of interest is that it is also # 9 on the Wall Street Journal non-fiction best-seller list.
The book is receiving scathing critical reviews. You can read a summary of these from the Huffington Post, written by Katherine Brooks, whose by-line reads, “It’s been described as “witless,” “insufferable,” “vapid,” and “very vapid.””

Even though this is a best-seller, you can be assured that we will not present it at the First Friday Book Synopsis. My prediction is that it will be off the list, from # 1 to beyond # 10, within two weeks.
