Wonder Women: 25 Innovators, Inventors, and Trailblazers Who Changed History by Sam Maggs
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received a free copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
There have been a few books like this out recently, and I am a huge champion of celebrating women, especially when they’ve often been overlooked for their achievements. Wonder Women is one of the best books of this ilk that I’ve read this year, and there’s a few reasons why that is.
First, there’s great diversity in the women featured – so many different nationalities feature, whereas other books have been very US-centric.
Secondly, many of the women featured I haven’t heard too much about – it’s great to learn about new people who have been overlooked previously.
Thirdly, this book has a great voice – informative but also funny.
Finally, I love the focus on scientists and inventors, and the mini chapters about a career in the scientists.
Definitely one to check out!
