    Not in the least as described by seller World of Books in fact a complete misrepresentation ‘The book has been read but looks new The book cover has no visible wear and the dust jacket is included if applicable No missing or damaged pages no tears possible very minimal creasing no underlining or highlighting of text and no writing in the margins’Torn & well thumbed cover and bottom right pages Discoloured and dust clump on book edges

    A great book with some limitations exposing the oppression of girls and women but also pointing to good ways forward Packed with poignant stories I liked the journalistic tone but it was sometimes patronisingly American and lacked the hard scholarly research we need for a truly accurate picture I also felt the treatment of religion and culture in countries across the globe was very inadeuate In these respects I prefer the recent book by Elaine Storkey Scars Across Humanity Understanding and Overcoming Violence Against Women which is thorough and also brilliantly written Both books are needed

    George Clooney said it's impossible to read this book and do nothing I couldn't agree You may think as I did before starting that women's rights isn't really your 'thing' until you realise this is actually a HUMAN rights issue The authors husband and wife award winning journalist team Nick and Sheryl highlight the issues and tell the heartbreaking stories beautifully It's a page turner in all the best ways possible and arguably one of the most important books of our time

    even though I don't agree with everything the authors say the stories told and the way they were told made it an excellent read this is not an easy to read book in the sense that it's not pleasant at all most of the stories are really tragic and maybe disheartening what I really liked is that each chapter is divided in 2 the first par tells the story and the reality the second part tells you what you can do to change this situation by joining forces with someone else who is already helping out so in the end the reader is not only informed but also encouraged to take action I love the way the book was written and I think it's a must read for everyone who wants to be an informed global citizen and make this world a better place for everyone

    Stirring stories interesting information and powerful recommendations for action This book inspires and gives hope that the lot of women around the world can be bettered It is a dreadful litany of persecution in less developed parts of the world but it gives many examples of women pulling themselves up and making new lives These two journalists have dedicated themselves not just to their own careers but to the cause of those they write about Admirable
