5.0 out of 5 stars Too bad learning about History isn't always this fun 10 July 2013
By Shannon Guymon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Zach Hill's book on awesome Women in history is funny, interesting and needed. So many people don't realize how many women made a huge impact on history. Read this book and you'll see what I mean.

5.0 out of 5 stars FUN AND FASCINATING HISTORY BOOK! 26 July 2013
By Paul Genesse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a really fun and fascinating book that uses satire and humor to describe more than sixteen amazing women that we should all know about. Young women and girls need to understand that women shaped the course of human history, just like the men who usually get most of the attention.

Fearless: Powerful Women of History is a little like the movie Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, as many of the historical figures actually make appearances in the book, and are interviewed by the author, and his panel of hilarious historical figures. This is history made fun, and reading it is a joy. I think reading this aloud would be hilarious and fun for a family, especially if Mom, Dad, and the kids (aged 11+) took on the roles of the panelists. Some essays are a little gruesome, so read them in advance, but overall it's fine for most people. The only distraction I had while reading were the frequent typos, but I did read an advanced reader copy, and learned that the next version will be cleaned up.

The author, Zachary Hill, a man with a history degree who is obsessed with researching history, describes in an unscholarly way a few of the famous people we probably already know something about: Joan of Arc, and Jane Austen, but the rest are more marginal figures that have not gotten the attention they deserve. Hua Mulan (Disney made a movie about her) is described in as much detail as we know, and the truth of her life is incredible.

There are also essays about: Empress Theodora of Constantinople; the Byzantine Princess and historian Anna Komnene; Queen Tamar of Georgia the Conqueror; the warrior woman Rani Lakshmibai of India; Queen Matilda of England; Roman Empress Galla Placidia; the female "samurai" Tomoe Gozen of Japan (and there's a separate essay about other Japanese female warriors); St. Olga of Kiev (a brutal woman and her essay is probably PG-13); Caterina Sforza (who kicked butts so far they woke up in the next time zone); St. Teresa of Avila, and more.

Author Zachary Hill's history blog, MinimumWageHistorian.com has a ton of great information as well. Go there to browse the many topics he's covered over the years.

Making history fun and engaging can be hard to do, but Fearless: Powerful Women of History succeeds in bringing to light some amazing women who must not be forgotten.

Fearless: Powerful Women of History
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a boring history book. 19 July 2013
By Charlotte L. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Fearless: Powerful Women of History is a book your daughter would love. As the title says this book is strictly about women who conquered almost everything you can imagine while living in a man's world.
5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing & Much Needed! 4 Oct. 2013
By Khi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Rarely in any history forum or discussion do many women get mention, needless to say their fair share of accolade. Zach Hill brings us a book devoted to the awesome women of history in a fun and entertaining way. How cool is it to read about Jane Eyre or Mulan from the perspective of Joan of Arc? The author's makes history fun and engaging not just for kids, but adults too because he's talented that way, but also because he simply shares history - which despite what school may have taught you, is fraught with ridiculous, amazing, gross, blockbuster worthy tales.
