5.0 out of 5 stars What an inspirational and courageous young woman! 6 Dec. 2013
By Catherine M. Edwards - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I have been closely following her story since it first broke on the evening news.

In a society that often only prizes their daughters as yet another possession to be sold off to the highest bidder, Malala has become a true inspiration for other daughters in their fight to improve their lot in life.

The total irony of this is that the very terrorist organization that tried to silence her by ending her innocent young life is the very organization that made her inspiration possible.

This book is the summary version of the original by Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb.

Having read the original, I find that this summary version is nicely balanced between summary of the original book, and commentary on the book - with additional insight not included in the original.

Each chapter's well-written summary is short and concise. Of course, it's not the whole chapter - just a nicely condensed version that hits all of the high points. You get the heart of the original book, plus additional insight, in a unique and fast-paced format.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring Story and a great summary. 1 Dec. 2013
By Ellie Bean's Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When I saw Malala's speech at the UN, I was so inspired. She is clearly super bright beyond her years, and the fact that anyone would want to harm this innocent child is shocking to me. Her book is great. Her ideas and anecdotes flow so clearly, and her continued fight to push for educational access for every girl on the planet is amazing considering what she has endured. This summary is pretty good as additional reading and background information about her story and struggle that you wouldn't necessarily find in the book.
Much credit should be given to her parents in the way they brought her up. Her father was certainly different from the normal Pashtun man as he considered education to be of major importance.
I Am Malala is better to read if you have to choose just one, but this summary does the job of adding contextual insight. It's not absolutely necessary to buy this review if you're already reading the book, but it does help condense and recap all of the information. The writing is just OK, but the extra outside information and deeper analysis that this guide has makes it a worthwhile supplement.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Summary! 29 Nov. 2013
By Stephanie Richert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Sometimes I like to read book summaries to recap the big ideas, but I wasn't entirely sure if it's necessary for book like I am Malala. Malala's book isn't too tough of a read, so it's not like you need a deep interpretation like you do for a Dickens' novel. But this extra little review is nice to go through mainly to pick up some extra ideas and to put Malala's story into context with others like Mother Theresa, Joan of Arc, etc. The summary is concise and does a good job of capturing the "gist" of each important story or chapter.
Malala really showed extraordinary courage by continuing to speak out despite the taliban targeting and killing people as a deterrent, like the killing of the dancer who people like.
I would say buy the book first, but if you have the extra little money to spare, go ahead and grab this summary and analysis on the side. They go pretty well together.

3.0 out of 5 stars A surprise that worked out well! 26 Mar. 2014
By Jackie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I purchased this book, I didn't realize that it was a "summary" so was surprised when it arrived in the mail. I wasn't that keen on reading the book in the first place, but since our book club choose it for April's read, I was going to read it. Things turn out for the best, usually, as all I had to do with this is devote 50 minutes and I got a brief idea of what the book was about so feel I can participate, but mainly listen, when we have our review.

2.0 out of 5 stars MIssing an entire chapter. 15 April 2014
By Claire Hockett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The summaries were fine (despite typos), but since I got this for reference on a project where I was assigned chapters 14 and 15, it was frustrating to see the summary had completely skipped chapter 15. Goes straight from 13-14 to 16-17. Even though it's just one chapter, that's enough to make me not happy.
