Good introduction. Interesting list of women, some I've never heard of. Clever side-note titles (such as "Salerno - the John Hopkins of its day" or "Is there a female doctor in the house?")

Checked this out of the library to find interesting tidbits of this time period that step beyond the textbook for my seniors. Definitely using this in my classroom.
