It's hard to know whether to laugh or cry at this forthright, kindly and odd saga of advice from one of the most public divorcees in recent memory. Ivana obviously wants to help women struggling with some semblance of her own troubles. Get tough, get on with your life, keep busy, look good, find a new man: not much to argue with there. But however hard she tries to identify with ordinary folk, she can't resist telling how Prince Charles dropped by for tea at Mar-a-Lago. Seemingly nothing escapes Ivana's sharp eye. Her readers are bombarded with rhetorical questions: "You're not surprised are you?" (that Diana couldn't change Charles); "That's quite a blessing, don't you think?" (the two young princes). Cinderella wins no points from Ivana: "Cinderella should have said good-bye to those nasty relatives, cleaned herself up, gotten a nice job and a cute apartment somewhere." It is easy to mock, but the heart of the champion skier from the former Czechoslovakia is in the right place. She adores her three children and manages to keep all animosity toward The Donald out of these pages, saying, "I wish Donald nothing but the best, and I know he feels the same way toward me." This curiosity rather than self-help volume will be read more for the interesting detail of daily life as Ivana Trump than for hints on how to survive divorce and single parenthood.

Self-help books written by celebrities who have "been there" are amazingly popular. Take Trump's new book about divorce--she advises on predivorce warning signs, the actual breakup and being legally prepared, coping with a new single life, and eventually finding love again. Ivana hasn't exactly led a difficult life, but her surviving-a-divorce advice is just. Although her examples include making sure spring-break trips to Aspen will still be financially covered, whereas you are more interested in securing child support, the theory is to protect what you have and to not let yourself be vulnerable. Trump includes frequently asked questions, snippets of advice from divorced friends, and letters she received from women around the country in response to her own national-headline divorce. It isn't preachy or profound, and it will make you laugh, which maybe is exactly what you need. Lisa Orzepowski
