Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 7-12-- Grace Hopper's accomplishments are well known to computer experts, but as a pioneer in computer development, the inventor of COBOL, and a brigadier general in the navy, she has much to recommend her as a champion of women's abilities in male-dominated fields. The quality of the life portrayed here is not diminished by some difficult explanations of the workings of the computer systems and the languages Hopper used. Black-and-white photographs, an extensive list of professional activities and awards, and an index complete the volume. Worthwhile reading, as it is one of the few sources that addresses this remarkable woman's achievements. --Ruth K. MacDonald, Purdue University Calumet, Hammond, IN
