Summary
Presents a diverse perspective of successful, inspirational and progressive women in science and engineering "Producing such a book is an excellent idea. Not all bright young female students and post-doctoral scientists in my lab are convinced that they can make a successful and fulfilling career in science. Excellent researchers interviewed for this book will serve as role models." (Yury Gogotsi, Drexel University) Women of today from 29 countries provide overviews of their successful careers, the challenges they faced, and offer advice. They have lived in the same era, and perhaps also the same environment as you.
