This book is a short summary of the life of the 52 women. I personally like the illustration and it makes the book much more fun to read. I like getting to know more about rebels women that I haven't learned before. Overall, it's a fun book to read.

Very approachable, elementary-middle grade overview of a broad panorama of phenomenal women. A fair number of the women profiled in these short, one-page biographies are American, but other nationalities and a variety of ethnicities are represented. It doesn't go deep, by dint of the format, but any reader will be able to find an inspiring story or two in here.
