It is fascinating to read about people who are so talented and ahead of their time. The vision they have make future events just a matter of time before they happen. Also, in this book one realizes the fundamental role parents can play in the future of their children, by nurturing and encouraging them to carry on their tasks and goasls with determination and joy.

It would be a better use of your time to just read the dictionary page by page than to read this terribly boring biography. This is about a young girl, about the age of 6, that one day went up to her family and said, "I'm going to be a doctor." This seemed impossible because in 1840, there were no woman doctors in America. She later finds out that it is seemingly impossible because every medical school turns her down. When she applies to Geneva Medical College in New York, astonishingly, she gets in. At the school, she was the only woman there, and is put down by stereotypes and sexists. Despite many people's views, she did become the first woman doctor. This adventurous tale of boredom and repetition could have been made fascinating if the author would write more about the adventures in medical school than the regular life. I warn you that with every page you turn, you will doze off to dreamland.

I was informed about this amazing woman by this awesome book. if you need an uplift of courage and need a role model, read this book and you will feel your heart roar with happiness.
