What makes this book so unique and fabulous is the combination of Maya Angelou's "phenomenal poem" and Paul Gauguin's exotic paintings. It's unbelievable how well the two art forms go together. I've lost count of how many times I've read the book. I just keep going back to reread the poem and stare at the pictures. ... It's a great gift idea for a girlfriend.

Phenomenal Woman is an AMAZING poem that has touched so many females, showing that it is not whats on the outside that counts. showing that you dont have to be pretty or skinny to be phenomenal. this poem is one of my favorites because it made me stop worrying about what people think of me. i love this poem because when i am feeling ugly or fat i can read this poem and it will make me feel so much better.

What a wonderful collection of poems celebrating women. This book of four very soulful, strong, empowering poems has quickly become a favorite. I would recommend this book as a gift for any woman. Or better yet, buy it for yourself - you won't regret it!

Maya Angelou's book "Phenomenal Woman" is a celebration of women regardless of race, creed, or color. The poems contained between the covers of this small but powerful book articulate the strength and beauty of womanhood. I display the book on my coffee table along with other books. My twelve year old niece read the book and fell in love with it. She has asked me to buy a copy for her.I will buy a copy for her and my other nieces and nephews.
Maya, keep writing - you are a Queen and a "Phenomenal Woman"!

Phenomenal Woman is a "sassy", provocative, intriguing, and alluring poem. Dr. Angelou delves into the soul of every woman and reaches up with the truth. I have admired Dr. Angelou since I read her autobiography (I Know why the Caged Bird Sings, et al.) since my high school days. She truly is an inspiration! Thank you, Maya!

I heard Oprah recite the title poem at her workshop and had to have it. It is a great little book and would make a nice gift for a 'phenomenal woman'

Phenomenal Woman is an outstanding prose by Dr. Maya Angelou. The piece pays tribute to the indomitable spirit of the brave women ... particularly women of color who have been marginalized because of their looks. However, this book is enhanced by art that displays the diversity of these amazing women... and as such, I think it makes a unique gift. It is a gift that tells the women you admire that you honor them in more ways than one. It's an outstanding gift for the women who already are phenomenal... and those well on their way.
