Women Who Work by Ivanka Trump with SB Nation's Ryan Simmons

Waddup, book nerds! In this episode, our special guest Ryan Simmons (Irishmin, SB Nation) read Women Who Work by Ivanka Trump with us!
This 2017 self-help book debuted at No. 4 on the “Advice, How-To and Misc. and Monthly Best Sellers” list for the New York Times. Despite being written by President Trump’s golden child, this book actually lost the publisher $220,000. Why? We rip it apart to find out.

Mean Book Club is four ladies (UCB, BuzzFeed, College Humor, Impractical Jokers) who read, discuss and whine about NYT bestselling books that have questionable literary merit. It's fun. It's cathartic. It's perfect for your commute. New podcast (almost) every Tuesday!

Here’s the book list for Season 7 so you can read along:

* The Christmas Train by David Baldacci
* Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann
* American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins
* Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
* Naughty Neighbor by Janet Ivanovich
* Women Who Work by Ivanka Trump
* Naked Came the Stranger by Penelope Ashe
* Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
