The book is interesting concerning the life and strictures of the college woman of the past. In fact, it covers everything but the classroom itself. They have a good bit about the classes taken and attitudes towards women's education but what actually happened in the classroom is ignored. I can't help but think that there are some interesting stories to tell although evidently not well documented. Otherwise, the coverage of various aspects of college life seems fairly complete. Everything from food to sex is covered in detail. Attitudes are a special concern of the author, which is as it should be, I think. The author has an adequate number of references included in the book.The book is well-written, well-illustrated and features what I assume are documents from primary sources. All in all I thought it worth my time.

This book is fascinating and often infuriating, though it's because of the historical facts, not the author. I was appalled at some of the stereotypes and complete misunderstandings about women's abilities in the beginning of the last century. Peril peppers the historical information with chatty asides and great quotes from period literature. This is a must read for any woman who has ever been to college.
