What People are Saying About This

Howard Georgi

This book is not only an insightful and useful study of women in mathematics—it is a page-turner. As thirty-six women mathematicians come alive in these pages Margaret A. M. Murray destroys the myth of the cloistered mathematical life and implicitly challenges us to find a new mythology that works for the next century. I couldn't put it down.
