The authors focus on the years 2014 to 2016 and tell the stories of women working in or leading tech companies. Also included are stories of women entrepreneurs in primarily internet companies. Cabot and Walravens include statics regarding women in the tech industry.
They tell the stories of many women such as Michelle Phan, creator of the e-commerce cosmetics company Ipsy, and Tracy Chou, a software developer at Pinterest. The authors also told the story of female “angel investor” Joanne Wilson who invests in women developed and owned businesses. The authors also have made a point of writing about minority women.
The book is well written, researched and organized. The authors cover failures as well as success. I felt the book focused more on female entrepreneurs instead of engineers, mathematicians and other STEM scientists. As a scientist, I was not the least interested in reading about what someone wore to the interview. I think the title of the book should have been Women Entrepreneurs instead of Geek Girls. I think the target audience of the book was high school girls. The overall presentation of the book was one of optimism and encouragement.
The book was just over seven hours long. Author Heather Cabot narrated the book.
