Reviews:
  • Thoginn
I bought this book because I like reading stories about smart, successful women. I wasn't disappointed. Hundreds of stories of accomplished women are here and a lot of things previously unknown to me. Everything is covered from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.
As a reference it's hard to beat. I'd recommend it to anyone who needs source material to write about women who've accomplished great things. You won't be disappointed, either.
