'A juicy and honest memoir from one of the most successful and self-made British businesswomen of her generation' Financial Time

Ce livre se lit tres facilement. J'ai toujours été intriguée par le succès de cette marque et je suis satisfaite de découvrir son origine. En tant qu'entrepreneur, j'apprécie les quelques 'tuyaux' distillés par l'auteur.
Si vous cherchez un bouquin facile à lire, pour passer un bon moment et découvrir les dessous de Jimmy Choo, alors celui-ci est pour vous.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Is it me or is Tamara an overprivileged whiner? 27 octobre 2013
Par RSP - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I always finish my books, but I'm about 60% of the way through this one and am not sure if I can take it any more. The writing is poor and tedious with its overfocus on the minute details of the business transactions. But I think what got to me more was how whiny she comes off in the book; she does a thorough job of pointing fingers for blame and complaining about how bad her life is and how much worse it's going to get throughout the book, while at the same time talking about her she's paying for a half-a-million dollar wedding, jetsetting with celebrities, and so on. This is a tedious, and on top of it all, irritating read because of Tamara's seemingly endless complaining and blaming.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Would you like some cheese with your whine? 16 octobre 2013
Par A. Sasso - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
While I read about 3-6 books a week, both for work (in publishing) and pleasure, most of the books I read are history/biography/memoirs that are about people who have made substantial contributions to the world. I have a weak place in my heart for women like Slim Keith, C..Z Guest, Babe Paley, Mona Von Bismark, Wallis Simpson all the way down to Athenais De Montespan, Madame Du Barry and Eleanor of Aquitaine. So, this book seemed like it would be entertaining, and a fun read. I was NOT looking for any self-help or career advice in it. I don't know why anyone would.
Having said that I must also say that I have almost NEVER written a review (good or bad) about a book I have read (either for work or for my own enjoyment)
Now:
Tamara Mellon and her "co-author" can't write well. Nor can they pull off making Tamara seem anything other than a horrid individual, albeit one who helped bring great shoes to the forefront of the world's attention. Unlike Andie Sachs in A Devil Wears Prada I give credit to the men and women who work in the fashion industry, and recognize it as an important business.
I have met and worked with many strong, independent women who have struggled (in many cases during harder times than the 1990s when women had it difficult for many reasons), and usually these women are...eccentric, and can be downright rude, brusque or even mean. However, Tamara not only comes off as all of those, but she's one other thing...whiny. She comes off like a wounded bird who has built up anger for so, so, so many people (whose names she loves to drop) that she "wrote" this book possibly on the advice of her therapist for some sort of catharsis. I've worked with household names who may have made me go home and rant for an hour about how horrible they were, but at least they didn't whine about EVERYTHING in their ENTIRE life and then go on to be mean.
I almost never put down a book (especially a slim volume) before I've finished, and I almost made it through this piece of rubbish before it had to go into a chest that will probably never see the light of day again. It's not even a fun gossipy trashy book, but more the rantings of a woman who is probably one of the most unpleasant women you would run across.
I have no doubt that she should be proud of what she's accomplished, but I think the story would be much better if it were written as a graceful approach at those she seems wronged by (nearly everyone on earth). Instead of spewing venom, and poorly spewed at best.
Please DO NOT read this if you are looking for business advice. You won't find much here.
Please DO NOT buy this if you are looking for gossip trashy name dropping, because there are SO many other books you can get that are more substantial and more fun than this. This just makes you angry.
Please DO NOT buy this if you are a fan of Jimmy Choo shoes, Tamara isn't a fan of Jimmy or his (or her) shoes.

Picked it up for the dish (yes, it's there) but ended up with a handbook on how to -- and not to -- navigate the business world as a female and a novice. Ms. Mellon spares nothing and no one in dissecting her rise to the top and problems encountered on the climb and at the supposed summit. Every turn, from sociopathic mum to devious business associates (lookin' at you, Mr. Choo) to doomed marriage to evil colleagues, is chronicled in somewhat of a poor me description but still an interesting story I finished in one sitting.

Would especially recommend to young female entrepreneurs.

Poor little rich girl story told in a quite intriguing way. A lesson in never mixing business with family and how you can never have too many pairs of shoes!

A Fashion Genius,this is book is very helpful for women of all ages ,who are entrepreneurs. I felt the strength and the courage she had and still have and to stand up for yourself,trust your instincts. Having experienced abuse from my parents ,I use to feel alone(it's a very lonely world) going to boarding school also ,after reading this book in less than 3hrs, I now have the strength to stay strong and also to Speak my mind even if people do not want to hear it. I admire her courageous spirit to always go forward and learn by her mistakes. It takes a woman with guts to pour her heart out,Tamara you deserve all the happiness life have to offer. You are truly a survivor and an amazing mom. A must read ,I love the business side of the book,the details that she went into,it's a crazy world out there,that's ready to eat you up with jealousy,bitterness,greed and resentment. Through it all that she made it:)thank you for writing such an inspirational book.
