" Non-fiction: The Gutsy Girl is a nonfiction book about a woman who documents all of her adventures into this one book. I didn't particularly enjoy this book because it just wasn't my style. Some of it was interesting and other parts i was just plain confused on who some of the people were and the places they were going. " said.

"Probably I am the least qualified person to read this book of adventures. Mostly I read about adventures on books and live it vicariously. Well, for me that's adventurous enough. But this is one book which I recommend for my daughter to read right away after she turns teen. I would like her to be an adventurous one. The author of the book has given an impressive ted talk and if you hear it along with it, it would be an add on. Loved the book and needless to say I scored a zero on the Gutsy meter. " said.

"Go now and buy this book for your daughter, your niece, your cousin, your neighbor, or any other young woman in your life. Caroline Paul speaks and writes so eloquently and clearly about how girls and young women in our society are raised to fear adventure, bravery, and exploration. From the moment they can move, they're cautioned more than their brothers, discouraged more than their cousins, and sheltered more than their friends. Paul—a woman with an epic list of adventures under her belt—aims to change that, and I couldn't agree more. This book will help encourage your favorite young woman to chase adventure, embrace "crazy" ideas, and learn that "gutsy" and "brave" are descriptions to aspire to. " said.

"Fantastisch boek dat jonge vrouwen en meisjes inspireert stukken avontuurlijker in het leven te staan. De schrijfster zelf heeft avonturen beleefd die ik bij lange na niet ga beleven, maar dat hindert niet. Integendeel: haar humor, visie en grappige flowcharts (wel of niet van een rots in het water springen?) wakkeren een overall avontuurlijk gevoel aan dat niet per se geuit hoeft te worden middels kajakken in Kroatië, een beroemde brug beklimmen in het donker of skeleton beoefenen om het olympisch team te halen.

(De Nederlandse vertaling luidt overigens nogal tuttig 'Meisjes met lef' - dat het niet haalt bij de term 'Gutsy Girls', dat zoiets betekent als 'meiden met ballen'...)

Grappig, inspirerend en met ruimte om zelf lijstjes in te vullen en zaken op een rij te zetten - met als doel: een avontuurlijker leven als gutsy girl.

" Stories and lessons on fear, adventure, and planning for the younger girls. Fun, cautionary, full of quotes and examples of badass and normal girls and women getting stuff done and being awesome. " said.

" I loved this and found myself wishing I could give this book to a 9-year-old me. Such a great independent spirit to the whole thing with lots of room for reflection and journaling within the pages of the book. I really appreciate that it's less typical hero writing (she doesn't always accomplish her objective) but the more human version of "we do our best, and that's enough." " said.

" I won this book via a Goodreads Giveaway. The main audience for this book is young girls and having said that I enjoyed reading this book a lot.The book contains inspirational quotes, info on adventurous women, journal entries for your adventures, and Caroline Paul's own adventures.The book deals with sexism, travel, fear, belonging and many other things girls go through (and adults). It's a very feminist book and a great gift for a Gutsy Girl to start her off in her own adventure. " said.

" "Activitatea mea favorită e să merg acolo unde nu am fost niciodată. " " said.
