Highly recommended, a much-needed book portraying the lives and works of strong women scientists. Fifty-two excellent role models for young women. I would have liked to see more biographies on women living outside the U.S., Europe, and Russia.
For most of the audible version, the narrator spoke in U.S. English. However, in parts where people from other countries were quoted, she slipped into accents that sounded stereotypical and almost disdainful. I would have liked it better if she spoke those parts without the accents.

These 52 vignettes of women who labored because of their love of science or technology is fascinating and needed reading by anyone interested in history of science or technology and by all teachers

Easy to understand and listen to. Perfect short summaries of amazing woman in our history.
What did you like most about Headstrong?
This book is an inspiration. Any woman in science should read it. It gives that balanced perspective that difficulties are normal even for these brilliant women, but if you love what you do, you'll do it no matter the circumstances.
