I agree wholeheartedly with the review below! It is visually attractive and I appreciate the concept, but it is more theoretical than concrete or a pathway forward.

Reshma Saujani is my hero. The work she's accomplished with the Girls Who Code movement is remarkable. Unfortuantely, this book suffers from an identity crisis. While it includes short bios of important women in the tech field as well as an intriguing color palate (who doesn't love teal?!) with a diverse set of illustrations, the advice on being a woman in the tech industry is heavy handed. The subtitle suggests the call to arms "Learn to Code and Change the World," but the text is only theoretical rather than practical. Keep this for those young women who like to research (extensively) and who need quite a bit of encouragement before taking on a project.
