Women in Science, which has been a New York Times best-seller, is a book that highlights the contributions of fifty notable women to the fields of Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) from the ancient world to the modern world. The book is both charmingly illustrated and educational. This fascinating collection is not only full of striking and unique works of art, but it also includes infographics about pertinent topics such as the rates of women currently working in STEM fields, rates of lab equipment, and an illustrated scientific glossary. The profiled pioneering women include well-known figures like primatologist Jane Goodall as well as less well-known pioneers like African-American physicist and mathematician Katherine Johnson, who was responsible for calculating the trajectory of the 1969 Apollo 11 mission to the moon.

Women in Science is a celebration of the accomplishments of the courageous women who have paved the way for the next generation of female engineers, biologists, mathematicians, doctors, astronauts, physicists, and many other scientific careers!
