      It could have been twice as long. There were trailblazers I've heard of passed over. Good amount of time paid to each woman. Everyone needs to be aquainted with these women.

    2. Andrew on said:

      So often in historical writing, especially about women, historians feel that they have to put together a voluminously endless work. Ms. Hutchison discusses women and their continuous role throughout the history of the United States. However, she does not go into exhaustive detail, which is a good thing. Hutchinson taught me that when writing about history, the reader learns more from a less exhaustive approach. Through writing two or three pages on the story of each woman, Hutchinson covers just [...]

      Leading Ladies by Kay Bailey Hutchison presents snapshot biographies of a number of fascinating women who had a deep impact on the formation of America. From First ladies to scientists to women who devoted themselves to the social services, Sen. Hutchison touched on many women - some lesser known, but all put their fingerprints on this country. It is a truly interesting read and I'm glad I took the time to do so.

      My ratings are based solely on my enjoyment of a book and I'm afraid this one fell way short. The subject seemed to have potential, but the result was just eye-crossingly boring. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, unless they are doing a report on one of the ladies in question -- and even then, I'm not sure this book contains anything you can't find faster on .

    5. Joanne on said:

      Listened to this. Really interesting history of women who were first in their fields - real trail blazers. The reading style of the author was a bit monotone but the content was terrific.

    6. Amy on said:

      This book contained great info unfortunatly I can't regurgitate details. I should reread it at some point!

    7. Paula on said:

      Enjoyed what she had, but need to read her other book to see if those ladies I think she missed in this book appear elsewhere.

    8. Angela on said:

      Another well researched book about women in positions of influence that managed to be exceptionally dry and uninspiring.

    9. Miss Jessica on said:

      Cool to hear stories about trailblazing women, especially those I'd never heard of, but not presented in a way any more interesting then a page.
