Reviews

"This collective biography is most timely. An interesting, engaging collection . . . that will encourage readers to explore further and perhaps pursue their own scientific curiosities."--Kirkus Reviews

"The descriptions of the women's lives often have a quiet poetry. Readers . . . will find much to admire in these accomplished and unconventional women."--Publishers Weekly

"Swaby's powerful book serves as an indispensable reminder that women have always been essential to science and innovation. With clarity and meticulous research, Trailblazers is certain to inspire the next generation of scientists."--Nathalia Holt, New York Times bestselling author of Rise of the Rocket Girls: The Women Who Propelled Us From Missiles to the Moon to Mars
