I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
First off, this is a gorgeous coffee table book! The illustrations are so cute and I love the backgrounds of each portrait. The backgrounds all showcase something special about the woman featured.
I loved the selection of women featured. It was very inclusive. There were lots of women of color and even some LGBT ones as well.
As for the descriptions of the women, they were on the short side, but this is a coffee table book so I was 100% okay with that. This book is meant to be more of an introduction to these incredible women, rather than a full analysis on them. The author even complied a list of essential viewing (films and TV episodes) for each woman listed to further encourage readers to physically see the work they have created. I could definitely tell that she worked in the entertainment industry because she knew her stuff and it showed.
I also enjoyed the interviews. They were short but still insightful. The author asked the right questions that really fit the theme of the book well.
Lastly, I liked how current this book is. It does mention some current issues like the #MeToo movement a few times.
Overall, this is a beautiful coffee table book that highlights 50 amazing women and their groundbreaking accomplishments.
