Found serendipity I thought the title rather intriguing I read it in total Although after page 102 I did so in a much quickened style Almost to a speed read level but slowing down for certain points of classification etc and also to view the artwork Also noting the sub title introduction to each Mother And the ratings given to each woman introduced Kinky warning categories.This book is weird Very difficult for me to describe I ve spent a day in travel yesterday and it came to my mind several times on what adjectives this book could be said to encompass Strange affect fare, weird, kooky, social warrior modern sensibility murky judgments of right wrong to various moral codes And most of all a truly ridiculous kind of coding system used and put on the opening page to each character So you are warned Abuse, rape, child loss, abandonment, etc You get the idea As if the reader of every age was a 7 year old and needs to be told what to view or allow their poor psyches to experience Self anointed judge decrees by the sanctimonious Regardless, the copy itself was not thorough or horrific enough for each or any life event to make the system of warning at all necessary, IMHO And the tone of the author within the life tale s was intrusive Often putting his own asides into inappropriate context to the woman s era, life A type of reacting too, so you know how his superior intellect and fair
For me the history felt dumbed down and the attempt at humor was very humorless. Wow I knew of a few of the women in this volume, but many I had never heard of in my life This is fascinating reading The author wisely took the wind out of censors sails by organizing the short biographies by maturity level I m definitely holding onto this copy since it is very personally autographed to me The author drew a cartoon of Joan of Arc once he learned my name I can see hesitating over handing this to all high school students the Level 5 as well as the Level 4 biographies are pretty tough emotionally reading However, I think this would be excellent material for a college class on Women Studies Highly recomme
Another nice addition to the author s body of works Do note that being a mother was incidental to most of the heroines they were all badass for the sake of their own self family nation beliefs. I was excited to read Tough Mothers the follow up to Jason Porath s successful first book, Rejected Princess, detailing the unknown lives badass women in history I enjoyed this book overall too, but I felt it was somewhat lacking in information and cohesion compared to the first one Porath includes lots of interesting women in this book as well, leaders and diplomats and outlaws, which is all well and good but he seemed to insert himself into the book a lot than in the previous book, which I wasn t thrilled by That was a criticism I had of Rejected Princesses too, that Porath had too many snarky comments and opinions that didn t fit, but in Tough Mothers it got even annoying I enjoyed learning about new women I hadn t heard of before, and I still have lots of research to do, but I ll admit this book wasn t as interesting to me as the first one
Gorgeous artwork, fun and interesting entries, and a nice level of honesty in what can and can t be known, as well as the things we might rather not know but are still true I appreciate all of these things Technically, I probably did like Rejected Prin
I consider myself extremely lucky for stumbling over this book I was staying with a friend for a few nights and noticed it on her coffee table She had loved it and invited me to read while I was visiting.Through Porath I met many n
This book was eccentric and not in a good way The illustrations reminded me of the ValueTales books I had as a kid, stories that introduced children to important historical figures Louis Pasteur, Nellie Bly, etc which made it feel like a children s book These pictures however were accompanied by two to four page summaries of the person profiled, which felt like research notes lightly polished for a screenplay treatment for millennials This book does introduce the reader to 50 historic figures some of whom are lesser known who wouldn t get an animated princess movie, with a rough outline of what they should be known for and contains a bibliography for further reading if you are so inclined I would rate this book 2.5 stars if Goodreads allowed half stars I received a free co
Just as amazing and eye opening as I d hoped Please, Porath, continue this tremendous series These stories take a global perspective, finding women from across the globe and throughout history and illumi
