Book Review: Rad Women Worldwide by Kate Schatz and Miriam Klein Stahl

This is a fun book. A quick read if you mean to pick it up for yourself (assuming you’re a teen or adult) or a recommended read for a pre-teen. I actually learned a lot — like about the Colombian street artist Bastardilla, or Enheduanna, who I don’t think I have ever heard about. It gives good snap shots of the women it covers, leading you to either have to look up more information about the women or, if you’re not that interested, letting you feel satisfied with the amount you did learn. And the art is very fun.

I recommend this as a gift book or as a coffee table book, because there is not a lot of strong substance there (as you can gauge by the youthful title — “rad,” maaaaan). I do not know that I’d recommend buying it new, however, as the $15.99 price tag is a bit much for a book you can read in less than an hour.

I can see this being a good book for school libraries, in case a kid was wanting to do a report on a specific person that this book covers. Those are my main comments.

I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.
