(I have the advanced copy!)
Personally this book took me a long time to read. It switched from characters all the time and wasn’t done in an easy to understand way. It also didn’t really have a story line, which I know that it is nonfiction but if the events and people were changed in order it could possibly be better. I did however think that the information in the book was correct and explained well. Overall this book was great at giving the female scientists the correct acknowledgements.
