A very balanced review of Dorothy Hodgkin..her work and life in general. If you are not of a 'science bias' then I would say 'read it at a relaxed pace'..there is so much to digest. What a wonderful example of a mother balancing intensive research with a home life..they sounded like a super family. This is the book for you if you have only vaguely heard of Dorothy and her work and want to know more. Inspiring. This is the book for every girl who has the 'science bias' ,but has doubts due to lack of encouragement in her chosen subject.
