It is a very factual book, where the facts speak volumes. Even from the potted history standpoint it is informative and it filled many gaps in my own general knowledge. It is well worth reading.

This work reaffirms women's substantial contributions to scientific knowledge throughout the ages, revisiting names such as Hypatia of Alexandra, astrologer and philosopher Hildegaard of Bingen, Lady Mary Montegu - who developed inoculation against smallpox, the chemist Marie Levoissier, Caroline Hershel - a renowned astrologer, Ada Lovelace - whose work contributed to the beginnings of computer science, Mary Somerville "the queen of 19th-century science" and, of course, Marie Curie. In doing so she both reinforces women's contributions to history and outlines the precedents for women making great strides in contemporary science.

wonderful book showing the important contribution of women to science. Hypatia is a hero of mine.

I LOVE this book! It is an odd little tomb but one that we would ALL do well to read. Though the book is a little bit hard to read, as it leans towards the scholarly tomb format, it is still well worth it if you are looking to have an open and educated knowledge base.
This little gem explores the historical roots of sexism and shows the paths many women throughout history have had to resort to in order to be heard and validated, especially in the male dominated world of Math and Science.
Read it, knowledge is ALL-WAYS a good thing and any knowledge that deviates from the accepted sociatal norms is worth exploring. Remember the old addage 'history is written by the winner' here too we see the injustices of history.

The author has put together a comprehensive review of women, more or less lost from history, who participated in the sciences. The book is loosely structured around time periods, covering antiquity through the 18th century. The book contains many references and she clearly states her sources. Some of the more questionable (rabbinical tradition) were probably better left out. In any case, since she states the source, the reader can decide for herself.

I rated this book at one star only because amazon.com doesn't allow a reviewer the option of zero stars. The author of this book is a biochemist -- not a trained historian -- and her amateurism certainly shows, particulary in the early chapters where a competent historian would be careful in the assessment of the historicity of sources. So Alic retails a tradition -- presented as though it has a factual basis -- about Moses and his wife operating a medical school in Egypt. Never mind that there is virtually no evidence independent of the Bible that Moses even existed. Perhaps needless to say that the Bible contains no mention of said medical school. Shortly thereafter readers are told that Cleopatra studied human anatomy and physiology by dissecting condemned prisoners alive. The source for this horror story turns out to be a rabbinical tradition -- scarcely an unbiased source when dealing with Greeks or Greek culture. The rest of the book is at best naive hagiography.
