Product Description

Designed for those who wish to learn more about female historical figures, but do not know where to start, 30 Women in History does what it says on the cover. It is a collection of small biographies on 30 women from various centuries and countries. Each biography acts as an introduction to each figure and the key details of her life, the influences on her future and the legacy that she left. The short chapters make it easy to pick up and put down, ideal for commuting and lunch breaks.

Volume 1 features women such as; Irena Sendler, who saved thousands of Jewish children during the Holocaust. Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, the first female doctor in the United Kingdom. Hatshepsut, the woman who became a Pharaoh, and Anne the last Duchess of Brittany.

If you have always wanted to learn more about women in history then this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars I actually learned something! :3 29 March 2014

This book was easy to read and digest, I finished it in a week just reading it a half hour at a time before bedtime. And I actually learned stuff! I didn't know our history counted so many amazing women and I was happy to find the Dutch where not forgotten. I'd recommend this book to anyone looking for a light but very interesting read and wants to learn something new about history!

A polished, unassuming little book that packs a tight punch! I intended to dip in and out of this book, reading about one woman each night before bed, that sort of thing, but I ended up devouring the whole thing in two sittings. A perfect light-touch, high-narrative introduction to thirty amazing women who hopefully - through works like this - will start to get more general recognition.

A definite bargain as well - pick this up for your Kindle and enjoy. Can't wait for the second instalment.
