I enjoyed this book. I will definitely keep it, and save it for those days when I need a dose of bad-ass inspiration in my life. My one little nit-pick is that sometimes the author's humour annoyed me, but all in all, I didn't mind it. Well-researched and is a good starting source for historical research into powerful women of medieval times. I am going to read quite a few of the books she sourced in her bibliography.
