Format: Paperback
This is a great book that I like to give to female students who might be considering a career or just a major in mathematics. It gives the short biographies of quite a few mathematicians in detail. In this way, even if the student can't have these female role models physically in their life, the student can at least get to know these role models and their individual struggles.

Reading this book will help young women understand what challenges they will face if they pursue a career in math, but also that this career path *is possible* for women, and has been successfully achieved by *many* women before them.

At the same time, not every women profiled in this book is a math teacher. Many young students believe this is the only option for a person with a degree in mathematics, but this book samples from a wide array of jobs, from nutritionists to engineers to math teachers (like me)

I recommend this book, especially for women pursuing a degree in math, but it would also be helpful for young men thinking about receiving a degree in math because it displays an array of job possibilities that can be achieved with a math degree.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. My 14 year old daughter enjoys math, but neither she nor I were aware of the variety of jobs someone can have with a math degree/math focus. This book has short chapters with a variety of interesting stories. I think it could be more appealing if they jazzed up the format a bit, maybe with quick hits at the beginning of each chapter like "what I do" and "why I love it" and "the type of math I use" - rather than having to read each story as a narrative. Still, I would recommend this if you have a daughter (or even a son since the careers can be pursued by either gender) who shows an interest in math.

I wrote the chapter about the satellite electrical power system. It was a great pleasure to work with the editor, Marla Parker.
