--Los Angeles Times

"Bonney's quietly radical, profoundly moving project brings together short interviews with a diverse group of women who share insight on their life's work. . . . Gorgeous photographs reveal a kaleidoscope of joyful enterprise.

The book was pretentious. I was hoping for more humor and creativity, less snobbery and rarified air. Also-the book arrived with damaged corners.

This book is a great coffee table book. I gave it four stars because I would like to see more entrepreneurs and different businesses. Most of the women are “makers and artists.” I ordered the book online as a gift and it came slightly damaged. I reached out to Target and they immediately mailed a new book to me. Amazing costumer service!
