She Can Find Her Way: Women Travelers at Their Best Paperback – November 27, 2017
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

What an inspired collection of travel essays! Once again, I'm reminded that travel is more about the journey than the destination. These volumes should be required reading for all women travelers. Or, for that matter, for anyone embarking on a globe-trotting adventure.--Cliff Garstang, editor of Everywhere Stories: Short Fiction from a Small Planet and author of What the Zhang Boys Know, winner of the Library of Virginia Literary Award for Fiction

What I enjoyed most about this book was the fact that in the world we live in, the notion is that women only face trouble and possible discrimination at work or other public organizations. However, here you realize, that even traveling alone has its own troubles and difficulties if you are a woman. I have to, of course, add that it does not only emphasize on this topic alone. It also provides tricks and provides tips on how to travel better, as women.
The stories, in fact, imply on demonstrating how flexible and lenient women are when it comes to dealing with whatever that gets thrown at them. The literature and writings are in various formats. Some are witty, suspenseful, or even seriously worrying.
I felt that the division and organization between the stories kept each of them to be sweet in their own space and that made the work more enjoyable to read.
I recommend this collection to people that enjoy reading women studies.
I read this in one sitting and would certainly like to the read the others. Some of the stories are real page turners and one does not know how the story or indeed the destination will end or change.
You do not have to be a female to enjoy these stories, who has not been on train uncertain if they have boarded the correct one as the doubts increase as the journey progresses.
Yes I would recommend this for those who enjoy travel and the human condition. I would like to thank NetGalley for providing a copy for this honest review
