Reviews

From the reviews:

"provide[s] information not readily available elsewhere… a valuable book for younger women physicians struggling to make a life for themselves." (NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE)

"The book, backed by extensive and impressive research … is a monument in tracing the life goals and challenges of women from the womb to the tomb. What makes each page of this book increasingly engrossing and wholesome is the case vignettes, real life stories of women physicians, and certain handy appendices … . An insightful writing that pays tribute to every woman physician, wherever she may be … with whatever odds against her, it is an indispensable book not to be missed by any physician." (Dr. Pakhee Aggarwal, Anil Aggrawal’s Internet Journal of Book Reviews, Vol. 3 (1), January-June, 2004)
