Amazon.com:
She’s Such a Geek is a groundbreaking anthology that celebrates women who have flourished in the male-dominated realms of technical and cultural arcana.

Editors Annalee Newitz and Charlie Anders bring together a diverse range of critical and personal essays about the meaning of female nerdhood by women who are in love with genomics, obsessed with blogging, learned about sex from Dungeons and Dragons, and aren't afraid to match wits with men or computers. More than anything, She’s Such a Geek is a celebration and call to arms: it's a hopeful book which looks forward to a day when women will invent molecular motors, design the next ultra-tiny supercomputer, and run the government.

Edit 29.6.2008: I just finished this book and I had started it a few days earlier. I totally loved it! I could really identify with these women. I'd love to meet them. Having said that I have to confess that not all essays were as good. It really depended on the writer. But there were definitely more positive reading experiences than negative ones. This will definitively belong to my personal collection.
