?This book is useful in its brevity, its unique criteria for inclusion, and in the attention given to some subjects with very little exisiting or readily available material...for public and small academic libraries with a need for a collection of short biographies of notable, living women who have pushed the envelope in some way and for libraries lacking other adult sources on women adventurers, explorers, and aviators.??Reference & User Services Quarterly
