Product description

Review

This book held my interest from beginning to end. Mrs. Stein has written a useful and rare kind of historical biography, one that evokes a historical period and sets a record straight. -- Tracy Kidder * The New York Times Book Review * A rich study of human drama and social history at the birth of the modern world... Ada comes remarkably alive in this book, passionate but at times neurotic, with almost too much self-awareness, and falling into disasters ranging from illness and accident to losses on the horses -- all this is wonderfully preserved in her correspondence and is most ably presented here. -- Richard Gregory * Nature *

About the Author

Dorothy Stein is a psychologist with a special interest in thought and language and a background in physics and computer programming. She has taught courses in nineteenth-century women's history and in the biology and psychology of sex differences, and is particularly concerned with the use of myth in science.
