Rated 0

Biography: general

This witty, irreverent paperback explores the legacies of 30 extraordinary women from Frida Kahlo to Liz Taylor to Nora Ephron who give inspiration and instruction.

Smart, sassy, and unapologetically feminine, this elegantly illustrated book is an ode to the bold and charismatic women of modern history. Best-selling author Karen Karbo (The Gospel According to Coco Chanel) spotlights a group of spirited rule breakers who charted their way with little regard for expectations: Amelia Earhart, Helen Gurley Brown, Carrie Fisher, Hillary Clinton, Amy Poehler, and Shonda Rhimes, among others. Their lives imperfect, elegant, messy, glorious provide inspiration and instruction for the new age of feminism we have entered. Karbo distills these lessons with empathy and humor, examining the universal themes that connect us to these mesmerizing personalities today: success and style, love and authenticity, daring and courage. Being difficult, Karbo reveals, might not make life easier. But it can make it more fulfilling whatever that means for you.
