Trainwreck: The Women We Love to Hate, Mock, and Fear....and Why - Sady Doyle - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Trainwreck:

The life and times of history's craziest women.

My favorite Sady Doyle quote from the book:

"We all understand that genius and madness are connected. At least, we do when the genius is male."

Questions to ponder while reading Trainwreck:

Are women inherently crazy? (careful men that is a loaded question)

What is the difference between brilliance and insanity?

My review of Trainwreck:

A fav on the feminist shelf.

Crazy is as crazy does.
