This book, with a new catchy title, is really a reissue of the earlier book called Womens History of the World, published in 1988. Do not be fooled by the new title, nor the new introduction. The over generalized, often questionable historic information is the same.
I have no doubt that Miles readers can claim that this book an inspiration that changed my life, but such statements do not make this a solid historical work. There are now many books that do. Find one that sticks closer to the facts, and brings our past story to life in a more credible, less inflamatory, way.
