    If you ll indulge me, I precede this review with a seemingly tangential but ultimately relevant anecdote A few years ago, as part of a male dominated gaming group, I observed a discussion regarding howfemale players could be attracted to the game The earnest solutions suggested included pink paint jobs in the store, and add

    This is a fascinating study of six women who ruled ancient Egypt, ranging from Merneith 5000 years ago to Cleopatra when the BC countdown ended There isn t much truly documented detail for much of the volume, as she freely admits, but I found Cooney s conclusions and speculations convincing and fascinating The time spanned thr

    This is a history of six women who ruled ancient Egypt I expected to really enjoy this, having given the author s first book The Woman Who Would Be King five stars I also hate to say bad things about a book that a tour company was kind enough to send me Unfortunately, the honest truth is that this was really bad It s almost impre

    3.5 stars, rounded down This was fascinating, but ultimately far less thorough than The Woman Who Would Be King.

    Kara Cooney Ph.D points out that ancient Egypt was punctuated by periods of rule by women Many women ruled as regents for their young sons then advised them privately when they took the throne in their teens Cooney reviews the reign of six female pharaohs of the Ptolemaic period that ruled in their own right They are Merineth, Neferuso

    I picked this up on a whim from Audible when I had credits to burn and was trying to use them to cancel my account since I have like 129357 audiobooks and I don t need to keep accruing credits, but have I cancelled yet NO I wasn t really sure what to expect from this, but I ve been reading lots of feminist stuff lately, and I m always a f

    So disappointed with this book Unlike many other readers, I was not familiar with Cooney s prior work and only picked this up because it was a new purchase by my local library and I love learning about Ancient Egypt, especially the women rulers.I ve never read a book with so many presumptions and theories passed off as facts example Cooney s

    I read the first 1.5 chapters and skimmed the rest It s way too political for me I just wanted to learn about the various female rulers of ancient Egypt I really don t care why Hilary Clinton lost the presidential race Actually, I do care, but I d rather hear about it through unbiased news or political experts It s inaccurate and embarrassingly


  9. says:

    I enjoyed reading the historical fiction Nefertiti by Michelle Moran a few years ago It has piqued my interest in Egyptology and when I found this book about the females that ruled Egypt, I knew I had to get the rest of the story.If you re like me, you likely knowabout European history and monarchs than Egyptian dynasties You also likely know of t


  10. says:

    Such a disappointment Very little in the way of facts, which, dealing with the material is understandable.It was her sexist gender stereotypes and constant comparison to modern politics that really put me off Loved the subject matter and it was entertaining in between the annoying parts, but very flimsy in the nonfiction department.
