"Despite incredible recent advances, much about the science of earthquakes remains puzzling and uncertain. But what this beguiling book makes abundantly clear is that the women studying these terrifying temblors are some of the most inspiring scientists around. Pick up a copy and get to know them." --Dr. Robin George Andrews, author of Super Volcanoes
"Readers of Quake Chasers meet women who have found a meaningful life in science in a variety of ways. They can see that a career helping people manage earthquakes can be researching how the earth moves or how people respond to that movement, or helping people prepare for that movement. The stories of these women show both a career and a life that can inspire future scientists." --Dr. Lucy Jones, expert seismologist, founder and chief scientist of the Dr. Lucy Jones Center for Science and Society
