I talked about innovation on Face the Nation with Walter Isaacson, Buzz Aldrin, and David McCullough. (Yes really). Here’s a Clip. “‘Headstrong’ author Rachel Swaby was inspired to write her book about women scientists after reading a New York Times obituary about Yvonne Brill.”
Headstrong in the New York Times Book Review.
“Swaby tells the scientists’ stories with energy and clarity. Refreshingly, spouses and children are mentioned only when relevant — and the book is recipe-free.”
Review of Headstrong in The Washington Post.
“Brisk, bright biographies.”
Headstrong in O, The Oprah Magazine.
“Some of history’s unsung innovators get their due in the new book Headstrong: 52 Women Who Changed Science—and the World by Rachel Swaby.”
Headstrong was reviewed in Publisher’s Weekly.
“Swaby has collected an inspirational master list of women in science with accessible explanations of their work.”
I was interviewed in The Daily Beast.
Headstrong was also featured in Entertainment Weekly and Elle Magazine. (Reviews only in hard copy, alas.)
