    1. An excellent book of biographies of women pioneers in the field of medicine and how they furthered the path for those came and will come after them. A preteen or teen interested in going into the health service should read this book for a good overview of how women in the past fought for their positions and how women of today are making a difference in the health professions. I received this book from for free.


    2. This book features engaging profiles of outstanding women of medicine, perfect for young adult readers. Each chapter is detailed and incredibly researched. Readers are introduced to a number of women whose work was critical to the development of medicine – some well-known, some less so – all of whom had to fight hard for her place in her chosen profession. Especially recommended for STEM teachers!


    3. I think this is a marvelous book. Pithy and concise, yet anecdotal and inspiring. It is actually a perfect subway read -- I can get a chapter or two finished during my commute. The stories of these strong, bright women who were ahead of their time are outstanding. I look forward to sharing this book with all the women in my family for the holidays.



    4. A very interesting read. The book starts with Florence Nightingale and continues into current figures in medicine. I learned a great deal about women I had never heard of before.



    5. A few too many exclamation points, but interesting for those who enjoy reading about medicine or women who have made history.


    6. This book is AWESOME. Such a good read, I couldn't put it down! For anyone interested in medicine, history, or just good stories, this has a little something for everyone. Add it to your list, everyone! You will not be sorry!
