Although many people associate the names Watson and Crick with the discovery of DNA, few know that Franklin took the photograph that led the two men to their conclusions. Written in an easy-to-read manner, this book highlights her personal and professional struggles, and readers interested in the history of science will marvel at how such a huge player in the discovery of the double helix could have been overlooked. Black-and-white and color pictures complement the text, and some of them illustrate scientific concepts. The book is carefully annotated, has a detailed index, and includes helpful Web sites. A fine addition to large science collections.
