The Only Woman in the Room by Eileen Pollack
"I'd recommend parents get this for their teenage daughters (and for the parents to read themselves!). Also for women in STEM fields or in college studying those fields. Anyone really who has a role in guiding, raising, teaching, or working with wo..." Read more of this review »

"I received this book from a Goodreads First Reads giveaway. When requesting the book, I had assumed it would be a book filled with some pages of boring data, but that it would still be an interesting, informative read. What I did not expect was th..." Read more of this review »

"I won this book from LibraryThing (in exchange for an honest review). When it arrived, I had a sudden crisis of doubt. Why had I thought I wanted to read this? Was I interested a book about women in the sciences or math? What did that have to do w..." Read more of this review »

William Manchester
“But there are no loners. No man lives in a void. His every act is conditioned by his time and his society.”
William Manchester

“Vision, Uncertainty, and Knowledge of Materials are inevitabilities that all artists must acknowledge and learn from: vision is always ahead of execution, knowledge of materials is your contact with reality, and uncertainty is a virtue.”
David Bayles, Art and Fear: Observations on the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking

Patrick Jasper Lee
“The world has a fast-growing problematic disability, which forges bonds in families, causes people to communicate in direct and clear ways, cuts down meaningless social interaction, pushes people to the limit with learning about themselves, whilst making them work together to make a better world. It’s called Autism – and I can’t see anything wrong with it, can you? Boy I’m glad I also have this disability!”
Patrick Jasper Lee

Elyn R. Saks
“in my experience, the words “now just calm down” almost inevitably have the opposite effect on the person you are speaking to.”
Elyn R. Saks

Julia Cameron
“Most of us are not raised to actively encounter our destiny. We may not know that we have one. As children, we are seldom told we have a place in life that is uniquely ours alone. Instead, we are encouraged to believe that our life should somehow fulfill the expectations of others, that we will (or should) find our satisfactions as they have found theirs. Rather than being taugh to ask ourselves who we are, we are schooled to ask others. We are, in effect, trained to listen to others' versions of ourselves. We are brought up in our life as told to us by someone else! When we survey our lives, seeking to fulfill our creativity, we often see we had a dream that went glimmering because we believed, and those around us believed, that the dream was beyond our reach. Many of us would have been, or at least might have been, done, tried something, if...
If we had known who we really were.”
Julia Cameron
