A rich resource of personal profiles of 88 women in the sciences and engineering.From the Inside Flap:
"This is a book to be savored, since each profile can be read separately and the book then set aside until one embarks on the next journey with these extraordinary and, at the same time, ordinary females." —Science Books & Films
"...an impressive resource... Throughout the collection, the authors meet their double objective: to show the 'diverse journeys' that women scientists take in life and 'the joy of doing the work, the satisfaction of intellectual challenge and achievement, the excitement of discovery, creation, and service, and the fulfillment of a good life's work.' They show us and all considering a career in science and engineering honest pictures of the pleasures, the problems, and the price of those choices." —Harvard Educational Review
"This book belongs in the middle or high school library and in the hands of any young woman interested in science." —The Science Teacher
"Both famous and little-known, average women are included, confirming the ability to participate in scientific and engineering careers without being superwomen." —Feminist Collections
