    "McKellar... may well have done more to encourage girls to stick with math than any government task
    force... the wildly enthusiastic response [her books] have received speaks to the effect that can be achieved by
    reworking the contents of standard math and science problems and countering the perception that boys won't like girls
    who are smart."—Eileen Pollack, The New York Times

    "Exhorts her female readers not to fall prey to others' low expectations, especially expectations that are based on
    deeply ingrained stereotypes stemming from one's appearance... McKellar genuinely wants to change the way girls view
    intelligence and, more importantly, themselves... McKellar hopes to revise the girly image of dim-bulbs with a new
    formulation: Smart is sexy. And that's an equation we all can understand."—Erica Stalnecker, National Review

    About the Author
    ----------------

    Best known for her roles on The Wonder Years and The West Wing, Danica McKellar is also an internationally
    recognized mathematician and advocate for math education. A summa cum laude graduate of UCLA with a degree in
    Mathematics, Danica has been honored in Britain’s esteemed Journal of Physics and The New York Times for her work in
    mathematics, most notably for her role as co-author of a groundbreaking mathematical physics theorem, which bears her
    name (The Chayes-McKellar-Winn Theorem.) Her passion for promoting girls’ math education began in 2000, when she was
    invited to speak before Congress on the importance of women in math and science. Since then, Danica has made it a
    priority to find time in her busy acting schedule to promote math education, often appearing around the country as a
    speaker at national mathematics conferences.
