Oh, if only this book was less pretentious.
It is obvious that the topics are chosen with great care and are well thought of, language and style are deliberately meant for a quick read, even the way the chapters are built is meant for reader to be completely drawn in. However, after three chapters in the same way it loses its momentum... Luckily, material presented and researches mentioned are so interesting that everything else can be forgiven.
One more thing - on couple of places author uses her as a general professions gender (as in A doctor - her job was...). It is so unusual and the effect is such that it makes you completely lose the meaning of current sentence. If the goal is gender equality, let us at least invent a new way of representing it. That way nobody will be offended and it will be universal.
