“My initial expectation was that I would read through this book and see famous women spanning time and the globe. In reality, I saw the average woman spanning time and the globe. Some images I recognized from National Geographic, mostly they were new to me and drew me in. These images are exquisite and the layout was perfect. The images depict women in different stages of their lives, the compilation of images and interviews comes across as inspiring and powerful. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐” –Instagram: @crystals_library
