My Review
Extraordinary Women in History is a book that introduces readers to 70 different women who lived throughout different time periods and did some extraordinary things. Some women are very well-known and familiar (Rosa Parks, Anne Frank, Harriet Tubman, etc), while others are a bit more obscure or unknown. Each woman has a short snippet about her life and what she did to be included in the book. It was an interesting read, but I found some of it to be a bit repetitive and dull. A few of the women had very similar stories, and they all kind of blended together.  This book also had some typos (the main one being Noble Prize instead of Nobel Prize). I think this would have been more fascinating and unique if it had included perhaps a small photo of each woman (if one was available) and a bit more about them. I've read two other books this year about women who have accomplished some amazing things throughout history, and both of those books were a little more enjoyable to me than this one. Not to say this one is bad, but I found myself growing a bit bored with the repetition. 
If you're looking to learn about some historical women you may or may not know about, this would probably be a good starter before diving into a different book for the main course. 
3.5 stars.
