    When you are young you read that Watson and Crick helped decoding the DNA model. It's only later one realizes that Rosalind Franklin was the researcher who actually spearheaded the study and is not even credited for it. She deserved much more acclaim and visibility but that wasnt the case. Its fascinating to read about the everlasting impact she had on the field. She was a true fighter in all senses. She defied the social conventions, kept researching even while battling with cancer and stood up When you are young you read that Watson and Crick helped decoding the DNA model.

She defied the social conventions, kept researching even while battling with cancer and stood up to colleagues who tried to dismiss her just because she was a woman. Nevertheless,she will continue to inspire countless generations who follow in her footsteps.Just like DNA - the genetic strands of life that she studied- Franklin's legacy will most certainly continue to live on.

    This biography of a vastly overlooked leader in the research that lead to our understanding of DNA was a surprise. Rosalind Franklin was a leader in the team that produced at least 4 Nobel Prize winners. However, either because of being a woman scientist during the 1940s and 1950s or her untimely death at age 37, she never received much recognition.

    This is a good starting point to learn more about a relatively unknown trailblazer in science. Rosalind Franklin did a great deal to help us all understand more about ourselves through our DNA. At the same time, this short biography is not meant to tell you every single thing about Franklin and her life, just the basics. A good introduction to such an amazing scientist, intended to make you want to read more in-depth books about her and her often overlooked contributions.

    Very good read even in this time of woman trying for equality. She was a very brilliant mind in a time of sadly mans dominance. What could she have achieved.....

    Barely worth reading - contains only the briefest, most superficial look into the life of what must have been a very interesting woman.

    A model is just a guess As biographies go this on is a history of DNA research. I would have liked to have known her better.
