Secrets of the Sprakkar is a fascinating window into what a more gender-equal world could look like, and why it's worth striving for. Iceland is doing a lot to level the playing field: paid parental leave, affordable childcare, and broad support for gender equality as a core value. Reid takes us on an exploration not only around this fascinating island, but also through the triumphs and stumbles of a country as it journeys towards gender equality.

Iceland is the best place on earth to be a woman--but why?

For the past twelve years, the World Economic Forum's Global Gender Gap Report has ranked Iceland number one on its list of countries closing the gap in equality between men and women.

   Fascinatingly entertaining nonfiction
The writer, Eliza Reid, the First Lady of Iceland, is also an excellent novelist. The book tells the story of strong women in Iceland and the country's strong support to achieve gender equity is so compelling it is hard to put down. Her style drew me in to the point that I would love to meet her, Tunick said. Even if you have never been to Iceland, you will find the culture extremely charming, Ms Reid writes.

   I love Iceland
Good book, says Jane. Really well written and informative. Iceland is a beautiful and progressive country. Most of the Icelanders I've met over the years speak excellent English and it takes a 5 hour flight from east coast.

   Amazing Book!
What a great way to start the new year, said Dr. Julie Gerberding, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This lovely, well documented collection of stories and interviews truly gives me hope that there is so much more that can be accomplished with determination, vision, grit and societal support to promote an inclusive society, and perhaps save our world, he said.
