In a work this short, one does not expect to find the authoritative study on the subject. I would have liked to see a longer work here. Additionally, a survey of important women in society does very little to show more general trends. For example, Joan of Arc's campaign shows very little about women in medieval French society by itself. I couldn't help feeling that Herbert was glossing over more difficult points.
All in all, I would recommend reading this book among many others. I would not recommend it as the only book on the subject, however.
