I bought this book because I have a small child and any good advice about raising children is very welcomed. I agree with lots of things she says about raising kids but some things were really weird and confusing. I think it wouldn't hurt her children if she were more present in their lives.
Also, modesty is a thing she should learn more about.
I found it shocking how much she still respects Donald Trump even though he was the reason their marriage fell apart. Not Marla! If it were not Marla it would have been some other woman with no moral values to be with a married man with three young kids. But it were not Marla's job to cherish their marriage, it was Donald's. He promised her for better or for worse...
Ivana even thanked Donald(at the end of the book) before she thanked her own mother who never betrayed her! This makes me think that she is either fake or respects only people with lots of money no matter how much real respect they actually deserve. I would certainly lose respect for my ex if he cheated on me even if he had Trump's money!

This book was delightful - loved every word! I had a good laugh when she went into Taco Bell and ordered a glass of Chablis. I have so much respect for Ivana for her perseverance, strength, determination and never say die attitude. She raised three great kids while working full time. Yes, she had help but she made sure her children were surrounded with reliable, good people. She also made sure she taught them values and made them work and earn their money. She was able to overcome so much by pushing away bad feelings and working with her children's father to raise them right.

I suppose I should have known better. I have to admit I haven't finished this book because I can't stomach reading anymore. In fact, even trying to read the introduction was difficult. Ivana gushes about how perfect her children are and how she raised them perfectly and how Donald is a perfect father. The whole book is self promotion and in my opinion not worth the paper it's printed on.
