5.0 out of 5 stars Illuminating and sensitive biography, 10 May 2010
This review is from: Dorothy Hodgkin: A Life (Paperback)
I sought out this biography after reading Georgina Ferry's piece in the collection of essays Seeing Further, brought out to celebrate the 350th anniversary of the Royal Society. I knew very little about Dorothy Hodgkin, and had been convinced I could never understand crystallography. But Georgina Ferry's luminous and precise descriptions of the techniques brought this extraordinary, fantastically difficult detective work to life. In her introduction Ferry expresses some concern that Dorothy Hodgkin, a very private person, would consider even this affectionate and deepy respectful "attempt on her life" an intrusion, but I don't think so. A really brilliant book
