    A cross section of important female personalities in mathematics such as they were over the history of the field Some names were familiar to me in some way, but many of them were completely unknown to me, despite some important contributions to mathematics.As far as the contributions themselves go, this book falls well short of the mark, mostly only naming in something like a laundry list the topics to which each woman contributed Notable exceptions are the works of Sonya Kovalevsky and Emmy A cross section of important female personalities in mathematics such as they were over the history of the field Some names were familiar to me in some way, but many of them were completely unknown to me, despite some important contributions to mathematics.As far as the contributions themselves go, this book falls well short of the mark, mostly only naming in something like a laundry list the topics to which each woman contributed Notable exceptions are the works of Sonya Kovalevsky and Emmy Noether, which are given amathematically teethed exposition I came away from each vignette wishing I had better insight into the actual work the mathematician being discussed had done.Beyond the scope of their work, however, the author does an extremely good job of humanizing each woman...
