Very disappointing

The title promised so much but the content did not deliver.

The review read: "As with her other deliciously gossipy biographies in this series, author Kathleen Krull tantalizes us with a feast of information that lets the listener peek behind the scenes of these extraordinary lives."

NOT TRUE. There was not tantalizing and no feast of information; at best it was a petty gloss over of these incredible women of history.

Some of these women acted in ways that could be considered weak or stupid into today's terms but the author does not give this insight. This oversight detracts from the lives these women lived and the times in which they lived them.

Also, the way it is read is in a very condescending manner which I found even more annoying than the content.
