In Praise of Difficult Women

Life Lessons from 29 Heroines Who Dared to Break the Rules
Written by Karen Karbo | Narrated by Bernadette Dunne
Profiling 20 daring, iconic women — from Amelia Earhart to Shonda Rhimes — and their wonderfully imperfect lives, this “inspiring” listen (Kirkus Reviews) celebrates spirited ladies who broke rules, refused to sit still and be quiet, and forged their own paths against the odds.

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

From Frida Kahlo and Elizabeth Taylor to Nora Ephron, Carrie Fisher, and Lena Dunham, this witty narrative explores what we can learn from the imperfect and extraordinary legacies of twenty-nine iconic women who forged their own unique paths in the world.

Smart, sassy, and unapologetically feminine, In Praise of Difficult Women is an ode to the bold and charismatic women of modern history. Bestselling author Karen Karbo spotlights the spirited rule breakers who charted their way with little regard for expectations: Amelia Earhart, Helen Gurley Brown, Edie Sedgwick, Hillary Clinton, Amy Poehler, and Shonda Rhimes, among others. Their lives-imperfect, elegant, messy, glorious-provide inspiration and instruction for the new age of feminism we have entered. Karbo distills these lessons with wit and humor, examining the universal themes that connect us to each of these mesmerizing personalities today: success and style, love and authenticity, daring and courage. Being “difficult,” Karbo reveals, might not make life easier, but it can make it more fulfilling-whatever that means for you.

In the Reader’s Guide included at the end, Karbo asks thought-provoking questions about how we relate to each woman that will make for fascinating book club conversation.
