Book Review: -sighs-

This book would have been great but it fell considerably flat in its delivery of the twenty women throughout history whom changed its course.

Each information on these women was short. Too short for my taste. I get that there was a few of them that history kinda buried beneath the sands and so anything about them is pretty much limited but for the others there could have been more. The book felt like it was rushed because the author simply wanted something published and out.

Sorry but my excitement of this book is now outweighed by the heavy disappointment of this books delivery in presenting strong females from the past and offering very little information upon them. Yeah, yeah you can tell me, "There are several where information is scarce" and I will understand that completely but come on.

Skip this book and find something else if you are looking for something on strong females of history.
