"An important and impressive contribution to the feminist narrative."-Bust magazine

"History has produced some very real, very dangerous ladies who make their movie and book counterparts seem lame by comparison. From Nazi spy to bloodthirsty killer, these women were not meek in any way. Heck, one of them even wore a mask of raw veal! You'll find out all this and more in this little book of miniature biographies."-Geeks of Doom
"McRobbie includes a good mix that will satisfy anyone who loves tales of history and audacity."-Terri Schlichenmeyer, The Bookworm Sez
"McRobbie gives many of these princesses exactly what their stories require: a narrative that tells their stories in broad strokes, without omitting any of the juicy details." -ForeWord Reviews
"Irreverent, informative, and entertaining, Princesses Behaving Badly is the perfect companion to royal novels." -Jennifer Conner, Literate Housewife
"[Princesses Behaving Badly] is a major addition to feminist libraries, and more importantly, it's lots of fun!"-Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight
