"Though many people are familiar with the work on DNA of James Watson and Francis Crick, biophysicist Rosalind Franklin's scientific contributions have remained in the shadows - partly because Watson was reluctant to recognize the importance of her work. In this thoroughly researched biography, Brenda Maddox explores both Franklin's personality and her achievements as a scientist, revealing that - in contrast to the view projected by her male colleagues - she was self-assured (though reserved), brilliant, and also warm and generous towards her family and friends. Franklin's work, though cut short by ovarian cancer at age 37, is well deserving of the recognition this biography offers."
