Here's what Ann Curry & Lynn Sherr have to say about The Mercury 13

"What is it about this country of America that launched the women's movement
that it would so easily forget the story of these thirteen women who wanted,
who dreamed of, and tested for space travel? They were part of our nation's
history...["The Mercury 13"] is an important book."
--Ann Curry, NBC's "Today" Show

"By discovering [the Mercury 13 and their] supporters and chronicling their
activities, Ackmann has given us a new pantheon of heroes."
--Lynn Sherr, ABC News Correspondent
