This book is very well written and deals with the trials and tribulations of ten, very well known women in our history. With each character, you begin to understand that dedication and determination are sometimes not enough to succeed. Each of these women faced adversity and could easily have given up. It was the understanding of each that success, to be appreciated, must come from some (and in their cases, intense) adversity. Each of these "Ten" is shown to be linked together while struggling for identity. Karen does a nice job in detailing just what it takes to win through adversity. Though your own problems may not be as great or you may not have come to be as well known, you will see yourself in the descriptions of each. Karen told me that she did not think men necessarily would relate or appreciate this book, because it deals with powerful women. After reading it, I disagree! Though it was a little more difficult for me to get into the rhythm of the pages, I did relate and did understand. Recently I became enthralled with the History Channel's, "The Men Who Built America," which deals with the likes of John D. Rockefeller, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford and JP Morgan. These men rose from obscurity and in the process built modern America. I liken Ten Difficult Women to that TV special. I was always under the impression that these people were born with a silver spoon in their mouths. Like these men, the "Ten Difficult Women," too, rose from obscurity and in the process made a major contribution to the future of our country and to their gender. While I personally believe women would enjoy this read more than men, for those men willing to see the world from another side, I believe this book will open your eyes and maybe give you a new perspective on life.
