In My Shoes - Tamara Mellon
When that job ends and after a stint in rehab, she convinces her father to invest in a venture of producing shoes with a cobbler Jimmy Choo. Setting up the business and the convoluted world of business deals takes up a lots of the story, there are lots of tales of lawyers and meetings throughout her business dealings. One can't help but feel that she expected a life of privilege and was slightly spoilt, and that had their been less exotic holidays, private jets and cocaine their might have been a bit more sensible decision making and money in the bank. Once her father dies, her mother goes a bit cra cra as she is already the major benefactor of the earlier deals, but still takes her daughter to court in a disagreement over some disputed shares.
Entertaining insight into what you might think is a glamorous world. 4/5
