He exudes asshole even in book form.

Also, "Historical Asian Biographies"?

This reads less like a book review than a political hit job. Surely one could provide quotes of the book as examples for how poorly it's written

Figured this would be hitting Fark.

You'd think someone with Jared's connections could find a ghostwriter to put SOME human "emotions" into the mix....but evidently there's some things nobody can do.

Hah! Not without a hazmat suit and 3 cases of Buffalo Trace for protection.   He almost certainly didn't write it, and knowing the Trumps that ghostwriter hasn't been paid and will have a sequel soon "Jared Kushner is a contract violating asshole".

A lot of his semi conductors, and other components, must have been manufactured in Taiwan before being shipped to US for assembly.

On a tangent, I recently tried to read Woodward's accounts of the Trump administration.  "Fear", "Rage" and " Peril".  I couldn't do it.  Don't get me wrong.  I made it half way through the first and quit.  The book was very well written, and as even handed as possible, but the clear self serving, corrupt incompetence of the administration was just too much.  I was absolutely repulsed.

There were quotes. Digging into longer excerpts, the thing reads like a few hundred pages of masturbation erotica.

Y'all are about bringing up Hunter Biden. He used his memoir as a sort of a confessional to bare his soul, warts and all. Kushner is using his as a tepid whitewash.

Is that from Amazon? Can't the publisher set their own categories for the books they're selling via Amazon?  I know in the past that was how some guy showed you can game the "best seller" system.  Pick categories that don't have a lot of sales volume and then when your book sells...some...you magically become a "best seller".  So, it may be that those categories, especially historical Asian biographies, do not have books doing a lot of volume now and whatever pre-order sales they pumped were enough to boost it to the top.

We are all breathlessly awaiting your critical review.

If you gave a fark instead of just being one, you could have followed the link to the primary source and read:

The tone is college admissions essay. Typical sentence: "In an environment of maximum pressure, I learned to ignore the noise and distractions and instead to push for results that would improve lives."

Every political cliché gets a fresh shampooing. "Even in a starkly divided country, there are always opportunities to build bridges," Kushner writes. And, quoting the former White House deputy chief of staff Chris Liddell: "Every day here is sand through an hourglass, and we have to make it count." So true, for these are the days of our lives.


You'd also learn that, of course, this book was ghostwritten by someone without enough clout to get a "with" credit on the cover.

I don't know, it sounds pretty funny, might actually be good.  I'll wait until it's .99¢ at Goodwill though.

The author had some fun here.
