Review:

Fascinating. . . . A delight to read, and highly informative.--Keith Devlin

Smart, bold, and provocative. . . . Sure to evoke even more interest than it does controversy.--Evelyn Fox Keller, professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, author of Reflections on Gender and Science

Remarkable. . . . A fascinating journey through the intellectual history that has shaped our current post-modern, scientific, and religious culture.--J. Wentzel van Huyssteen, Princeton Theological Seminary

[An] immensely accessible tour. . . . How the physics lab became another Vatican with a no-girls-allowed sign on its door.--Susan Faludi, author of Backlash
