Really enjoyed reading about Warrior Queens - Boudica, Elizabeth I, Isabella of Spain, Catherine the Great, etc. It got a little wearing after a while to realise that most of these women had to play some kind of game or face some kind of criticism, but I suppose that has always been the way of the world, and the fact that they achieved what they did in spite of all that is kind of amazing.

Perhaps I skim-read this a little. I didn't really take much away with me from it.
