I bought this book to read as an inspiration for my 10 year old daughter...there are not many childrens' books out there about women in math or science. However, it's not a book to read cover-to-cover, and it's not a children's book. We've shifted our approach, and will use it as a reference book (like the editorial reviews said!). In that sense, it's a great addition to our family library and will be valuable for years.
