I'm midway through Susan Casey's book, "Women Invent!" and I just love it. It's very inspiring to read these tales of how many cool and practical inventions were brought to us by women. The book has loads of info. and a great, accessible writing style that doesn't talk down to the reader. As a smart adult, I found myself really enjoying it--and my husband's been reading it too, and really loving it. It's definitely not just for kids, although kids would find it super-inspiring. Honestly, I wish I'd been exposed to this material as a student myself. It would have given me a lot more vision for how women have contributed to society in a field (science and things mechanical) which we don't traditionally associate with women's accomplishments. Great book; I hope there'll be others by the same author.
