    This was an interesting book that looked at ten women of science The authors primarily chose women who won the Nobel Prize in one of the fields of science There were a few selected that had not won the Prize but the authors felt they should have won The authors concentrated on women of the 19th and 20th Century Women who advanced in the 19th century were exceptional as in most countries women were not allowed to have a university education or hold jobs in the fields of science this began to change in the 20th centuryThe book was well written and researched Some of the women they chose were obvious such as Marie Currie but they did present some of my favorite scientists such as environmentalist Rachael Carson who did not win the Nobel Prize Others of my favorites that were presented that won the Nobel Prize were Virginia Apgar Chien Shiung Wu and Rita Levi Montalcini When I was in school these women inspired me to continue in the field of science All these women were fascinating brilliant women This is primarily a collection of mini biographies and helps reveal just how far women have advanced in education and the work place since those daysI read this as an audiobook downloaded from Audible The book is ten hours and twenty five minutes Lisa Coleman does a good job narrating the book Coleman is an English actress and audiobook narrator This book was published by Hachette Publishers
