Born Curious Characters ↠ 2 í “An inspiring look at women who realized curiosity plus tenacity euals success” — Kirkus Reviews Discover the histories of twenty incredible female scientists in this inspiring biography collection from beloved author Martha Freeman and Google Doodler Katy Wu Why do galaxies spin the way they do What’s the best ki E and many other fascinating uestions And it’s lucky for us they did Without their vision insight and hard work the world would be a sicker dirtier and dangerous place The twenty groundbreaking women including Rosalind Franklin Marie Tharp Shirley Anne Jackson and came from all kinds of backgrounds and had all kinds of life experiences Some grew up rich Some grew up poor Some were always the smartest kid in class Some struggled to do well in school But all had one thing. All of the women covered are amazing and I was pleased that there wasn't a huge overlap with other collections I was also pretty impressed with the range of sciences covered It could have been a little less white and AmericanWestern European centric I'm glad there was a glossary and bibliography but I wish there'd been a pronunciation guide for some of the terms
