Dorothy Hodgkin Summary

Dorothy Hodgkin: A Life by Georgina Ferry

Shortlisted for the Duff Cooper Memorial Prize The first biography of the only British female scientist to receive the Nobel Prize. 'For me, the science book of the year.' John Gribbin, Independent 'This life of Hodgkin is in the top rank of scientific biographies, hooking the reader from the first page and keeping you absorbed to the end.' Sunday Times Ferry's biography is far more than a clear exposition of Hodgkin's scientific work. She reveals the inner life of a strong and passionate woman who set out against unimaginable odds in the Oxford of the 1920s. This is a wonderful book about love of science and love for humanity.
