    Epub Rachel Swaby Ö Headstrong Epub ´ Ö headstrong ebok, Headstrong ePUBA Feminist's holy Bible Thank you for this great short book Rachel As a Scientist my teacher talked a lot about Rosalind Franklin and how her data was key to the double helix model But she was never credited for her work And i'm glad that the truth got out and everyone now knows that it was a team work Not just Watson and Crick my teacher also talked a lot about Barbara mCclintock and how she was treated and isolated but she made a major breakthrough when she discovered transposition and used it to demonstrate that genes are responsible for changing corn's color phenotype i learned about the rest of these strong successful women from this book

While I might have been able to come up with a few Rosalind Franklin Irene Joliot Curie the names wouldn't spring to mind as easily as I would like Now that I've read Headstrong I'll have no trouble coming up with a dozen or off the top of my head The best way to remember things is to connect a story to it Here are 52 short stories of a few pages each and you'll definitely remember at least a few of them

    Epub Rachel Swaby Ö Headstrong Epub ´ Ö headstrong ebok, Headstrong ePUBI got this book to review through the Vine program This book goes through uick profiles of 52 women who had large contributions to science The women are divided into different areas of science by the science they contributed to physics math earth and stars medicine etc This is a decent book My biggest complaints are that the sections on each woman are so brief that just as you are getting interesting in that woman the section ends It only gives you a very brief look into their livesAlso the sections are a bit sloppysome start at the beginning of the woman's

    Epub Rachel Swaby Ö Headstrong Epub ´ Ö headstrong ebok, Headstrong ePUBThis book is about 52 women who did have an impact on our lives and what saddened me is that I didn't know the majority of themFew pages for mini biographies the idea is awesome some readers said the author should have narrowed the number to 10 or less and spoke of these ten but no I love the fact that 52 women were mentionned you get to know a little about them their fights struggles and passion this will tease your curiosity to find out leading you to books and a whole new load of information and inspiration

    Epub Rachel Swaby Ö Headstrong Epub ´ Ö headstrong ebok, Headstrong ePUBI'd probably knock off half a star for some of the writers literary choices I swear there was a line that was like He made her career there wicked hard and a lot of time the tone dropped into slang which isn't a bad choice on it's own but it didn't fit the tone of the rest of the book but to be honest I have pretty low standards when it comes to books about women in scienceYou know because it's freaking hard to find them and when you do it's even harder to find books about women in science that aren't like Look at this one woman who is special
