4.0 out of 5 stars Educational 3 July 2009
By Noelani - Published on
This book features 50 women who "are outstanding individuals who achieved exceptional things in the major fields of human endeavor--politics, literature, art, science, music, social reform, entertainment, sport, and adventure." Each woman's life story is told in a 3-page mini-biography. I enjoyed this format and even made a list of people, movies, and songs I want to look up now that I've read a small introduction. Some of the women I found interesting to learn about include Cleopatra, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Margaret Bourke-White, Katharine Hepburn, Rosa Parks, Oprah Winfrey, and surprisingly, Madonna.

5.0 out of 5 stars Women Who Rocked Our World 8 Jan 2014
By E. Valero - Published on
Interesting book that chronicles the lives of some of history's most extraordinary women. It lists them in chronological order, from the earliest feminine rulers to the modern icons whether it be in politics, literature or the silver screen and the usual are listed here - Cleopatra, Mary Magdalene, Joan of Arc, Florence Nightingale, Eva Perón (always my favorite), Marilyn Monroe, Princess Diana, Benazir Bhutto and countless more.

The only issue is that the book is a bit out-dated. For instance, it was written before Benazir Bhutto's death, so her entry is not exactly up-to-date, and since I am not an expert on several of these ladies, I cannot state how well researched it is. However, I still had a great time reading it as the books layout kept things interesting. Each woman is given a photograph on their main page (or drawing) with a brief introduction, usually letting the reader in on what made this particular woman so spellbinding, and each woman's biography is spread out within 3 pages, just enough to include most aspects of their life, but still brief enough to please those, like myself, who are sometimes just plain lazy readers and want to cut to the chase. It also includes a FACTFILE section, listing off some interesting notes and facts that some may not know about these enigmatic ladies along with some famous quotes associated with them.

I always like reading up on historical people and events, and books like this help satisfy this never-ending curiosity I have with these mythical historical women. It is an interesting read and the famous and infamous women showcased here are worthy of reading up on, as their lives have become stuff of history and legend.

I find this book very interesting. I first saw it in my doctors office, but never had time to read it. It's a great one for girls and women to read.
