At that time salaries were so hush hush management didn't want anyone to know how much people were paid. If I were you starting out I would ask for 1.5 Times more than offered because then you'll get paid the same as a man. The phrase that stuck in my head even after the women were promoted that they were offered so much less than a man in the same position.
Of course there is a lot of American history in the last 70 years that is outside the scope of this book. But within the narrow slice of history that is covered by this book, the story told is vivid and nuanced simultaneously. You are right in the trenches on one hand, and have a birds eye view on the other hand. What was it like in the middle of the action? Why does what happened matter twenty or fifty years later? Not many books present both points of view at all. Far fewer present either point of view compellingly. This book presented both points of view in compelling narrative. Although it is a long complicated story, the writing is clear, easy to follow, and sustains reader interest. The enormous cast of characters are not easy to remember by name, but each time one reappears we are reminded of that person's role in the ongoing drama with a very brief recap.
Other similar economical writing techniques make this complicated story flow well for the reader.
