Product Reviews
"Somewhere between a coffee-table book for middle and high school girls, and an inspirational inducement to engineering as a career for the same audience, this book is a collection of excellent photographs interspersed with biographical and informational texts about women engineers ... but there is also a story that even a fifth-grader could read and find engaging." ?
