I absolutely loved the quality content of this book. Many of these men were raised by tough women who were far from "complacent and docile."

However, after taking a history class and quite a few writing classes, I'm rather appalled by the amount of conjecture in a couple of chapters. So we don't know anything about Agnes Taylor. The best writing will admit that and move on to what we do know. Similarly, an editor who could streamline trains of thought would tighten up logic and storylines that jump around a bit.

The research was impressive. And many of the stories fascinating-- Read Mary Fielding Smith's chapter for a taste. But the technical areas could use a little changing. Presentation helps the case and I, personally, have found very little to be wrong with professionalism in scholarship.

Felt a little forced and some seemed like they might have been personal ancestors of the writers. But others were truly remarkable and deserved more than the 2.5 pages used to tell their story. I think the tone was too academic, the research limited, and the engagement minimal. Could have been improved on.
