I don’t know if history has ever been fun, but it is now with Wonder Women: 25 Innovators, Inventors, and Trailblazers. Adventure, espionage, innovation, and science —– don’t roll your eyes —– this hit of history is anything but dull. Witty and wise, Wonder Women has a unique style that makes this an easy and fun read. I love the perspective, and it is high time that these ladies get their due recognition. Not until I read this book did I know about these trailblazers in engineering, exploration, medicine, science, and national security. Pretty sad considering I thought I was fairly well read. So thank you, Sam Maggs, for rectifying this oversight. It has inspired me to find out more about these wonderful women. I think readers that like to have a laugh while learning something will enjoy the breezy and engaging prose. It would make a fantastic classroom text and a wonderful addition to your family library.
