    1. This book is a mix of photography and very short interviews/summaries with/of inspirational women from very diverse enviroments. The portraits are ecletic and really show personality, if Im honest the page or so of writing which accompanies these pictures aren't enough to really tell you that much about the women pictured. But by far the best thing about this book is the 'laws' these women say are how they liv there lives, there sometimes funny, often touching and always inspirational.

    2. This book has snippets of various amazing women; what the went through in their life & how they got to be where they are today. They're basically a combination about the art (photos) as well as the women & their own perceptions & mantras so to speak.

    3. some of the women featured are rule-benders, some inspirational and courageous, the others are unafraid to be offensive, unapologizing to be great. of course the star is the female indian queen of the outlaws, Phoolan Devi. now she's scary. GREAT KICK-ASS page layout designs!

    5. I put off reading this book for a long time because I thought it would be cheesy. I was wrong--this was entertaining and inspiring.
