CenteringIndex
"This book offers an unusual opportunity to learn about the careers in psychiatry of a number of women from disparate backgrounds, many from minority areas. These women followed wide range of pathways to reach their professional goals. The book provides insights into the combination of background, historical moment, individual talents, and the role of mentors and supports that have led to success. There are also unique personal histories, interesting in themselves and for their diversity."-- "Malkah Tolpin Notman M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, Brookline, MA"
