Review:

"I think most scientists at early stages in their careers would find this book extraordinarily useful, and many scientists at later stages would benefit enormously from the advice as well. .one of the strengths of this book is the array of perspectives provided by the diverse collection of authors. .This book is both introspective and inspirational, driving readers to examine their own values and goals but providing ample illustrations of successful women scientists. I particularly appreciate the emphasis on self-awareness and the understanding that every scientist has their own path to follow; that no one sets of rules applies to everyone. Although the book is primarily meant for beginning scientists, it will be valuable to many women (and men) at various stages of their careers. I wish I had such a resource at the outset of my own scientific life. --Ann M. Flower, University of North Dakota School of Medicine for MICROBE (2006) ".aimed at women embarking on a career in science or in their final years of training for such a role. The prologue is quite inspiring and so are the women profiled... -- CHEMISTRY WORLD (2006) "...this book contains useful advice for women and men at all stages of their careers."--JOURNAL OF CHEMICAL EDUCATION (June 2006) "...valuable career guide which is relevant not only to scientists and academics but also women in other fields. Their enthusiasm, commitment, courage and willingness to share their experiences are what makes this book so readable. Full of useful tips and advice, it also provokes thoughtful reflection while providing inspiration and encouragement through the distillation of their insights and advice. As its title suggest, this guide is a book to be dipped into again and again as women face different transition points and its structured approach and excellent index makes it easy to find the relevant sections."--Margaret Dane, Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services, CEO (2006)
