I read this book too quickly. I need to go back to pick up all the nuances I missed. Sarcasm is not wasted on me!

I was provided with a free copy of this book through Goodreads First Reads.

This is a fun, short book of quotes from women on a variety of subjects. Some of my favorites:

"When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking." Elayne Boosler

"When women go wrong, men go right after them." Mae West

"If it's so natural to kill, why do men have to go into training to learn how?" Joan Baez

"I have bursts of being a lady, but it doesn't last long." Shelly Winters

This is a small format book (5 1/2" by 5 1/2") that is perfect for sticking in a purse or a tote bag, so you can read it on the go. If you're having a bad day, this is definitely the book to read to cheer yourself up. I plan to send my copy to a cousin to brighten her day. I really recommend this book. Enjoy!

I’ve only seen one quote from the book but even that was enough to see that no work went into verifying these quotes. I can only assume that these quotes were found on tumblr or Pinterest and the editor is not familiar enough with these women to be able to tell when a quote is very obviously misattributed or just flat didn’t care. Be careful when sharing quotes you read in this book. You might end up looking as ill informed at the editor of this book.
This book contains a lot of great quotes from great and not-so-great women throughout history. Unfortunately, Ms. Stephens sees fit to interject her half-witted commentary after every citation, apparently believing herself fit company for the women she admires. It's filler, and bad filler at that.
Also, the so-called "Index" is actually only an index of authors - useless for finding a quote by a topic or keyword.
I've seen most of these quotes elsewhere in more accessible form - in fact, probably a good 75% are on my "born-today" website. Save your money and get a good book instead.
