From the reviews:

"This book … is designed to promote the progress of scientific research and education by improving academic and career building skills. … the book targets female undergraduates, graduate students, medical students, and postdoctoral fellows, it raises issues and presents possible scenarios that would be useful for both men and women. … a guide for mentess, it provides advice for mentors as well. … should be in the library of any student interested in a STEM career as well in the libraries of mentors and advisors." (Marion C. Cohen, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2009)

"This book aims to be a reflective guide to women seeking mentoring relationships … in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) careers. … This book is more general in its approach and certainly has its place among the literature related to women in STEM disciplines. … one of many books aimed at helping women in the STEM fields be more productive and satisfied with their careers. … There are many useful points throughout the text … . Scientists … will certainly benefit from this book." (Julie A. Stenken, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, September, 2009)

“The strengths of this book are its parsimony, user-friendly structure and tone, breadth of topics, and practical orientation, it is clearly by women in science writing for women in science. … this book has much to recommend it to women in science, who even today are not yet situated similarly to their male colleagues. This guide makes a good beginning for women students of science, and its encouraging, welcoming tone and readability are congenial for undergraduate audiences as well as graduates and early-career scientists.” (Sharon Rae Jenkins, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 55 (25), June, 2010)

“In a recent book, ‘Getting the Most out of Your Mentoring Relationships: A Handbook for Women in STEM,’ by Donna J. Dean offers readers insight into how to expand these contacts into better learning experiences. … organized to be the ideal field guide for recent graduates, postdocs, and young women moving into the professional realm. … Additionally, the book can help first time mentors offer their mentees better advice by recognizing some of the traps they themselves might not notice they are walking into.” (STEM Trends, July, 2009)
