    November 6, 2017
    This coffee table book combines photographic portraits of and brief comments from 200 beautiful and strong women from around the world to showcase accomplishments and inner worlds of women across the world. Portraits are accompanied by the subject’s responses to questions that range from trite—“Which single word do you most identify with?”—to revealing—“What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?” Physicist Vandana Shiva, from India, answers the latter by saying it is the “desertification in the hearts of people,” that happens when a person is “wasted” and does not reach “full evolution.” The subjects in the book include a range of woman, any one of whom could easily be a role model to the next generation. Contributors include Linda Sarsour, who cochaired the historic Women’s March in 2017; Suha Issa, a mother of four who works as an English teacher to Palestinian and Syrian refugees in Beirut; and Cecilia Chiang, who emigrated to the United States from China in the 1950s and opened her own restaurant. While the paradigm for modern womanhood as depicted in the book has the feel of an echo of an unoriginal theme, the value is in the range of diverse and accomplished subjects. Color photos.

  • AudioFile Magazine This inspiring audiobook is composed of short interviews with women who represent a range of ages, backgrounds, and accomplishments. The interviews are delivered in 18 chapters that listeners can choose at whim. Musical interludes between contributors give listeners moments to digest the deep answers to profound questions. From "What makes you happen?" to "What one thing would you change?"--the women voice their own replies. This creates a feeling of genuine interaction and personalizes the format so that listeners also look inwardly while taking in the interviewees answers. For those looking for something new in inspirational reading, this audiobook is a creative experiment that works well. Interviewees range from actress Ashley Judd to chef Alice Waters, all of whom speak passionately on the unifying theme of the importance of social justice. M.R.
