SO COOL! Love this:

It was important to me that anybody could pick up this book and find someone who looked like them, who had an amazing story.

Yay headspace!

Nice, headspace! I'd like to buy a copy - where best to ensure you get the most pocket change from my purchase?

"You don't get the founding fathers without the founding mothers." I need that on a t-shirt. I'll add this to my Amazon list as well! Looks awesome.

She lists four online stores on her webpage for the book: Indiebound (indie book seller aggregation), Amazon (US), Barnes & Noble (US), and Book Depository (UK).

She also has a page for her similar book about 50 impressive kids.

Oh wow, thank you! I had no idea this was here until flt told me about it! Y'all are so lovely! This book was a dream project of mine. I have wanted to write it for a long, long time and I was so excited to finally get the chance.

To answer the buy question-- if you'd like to buy it, whichever retailer you like best is equally good for me. If you're not opposed to Amazon, please feel free to use the Mefi code for Amazon so the site gets the proceeds.

Your local independent bookseller can order them for you, or they're available at most other online retailers as well. And you know what? Requesting them at your library is great, too! Thank you all so much!

I'm happy to bring this to your attention, thanks to pjern for the initial post. And these look like great books!

With that, here's Amazon links, for ease of MeFi credits: 50 Unbelievable Women and 50 Impressive Kids.
