danica mckellar - who i first saw as an actress in the wonder years, has a book called "math doesn't suck" (online at http://mathdoesntsuck.com/) - i came across it at our local borders while looking in the computer section (sometimes i browse beyond the computer books into the math/physics section on purpose or by accident).  in this case the title caught my eye and prompted me to pick it up and read the back cover.  the book's purpose (helping middle school girls with math and self esteem related to the subject) seemed like a great idea.  as many in the computer field know, there are more men than women and i think books and programs like danica's could change that.  having a daughter who just started kindergarten i will be picking up my copy (might even do so well in advance of my daughter needing it!)
