A fascinating compendium of stories of uncredited scientists and inventors throughout the ages.

Over the centuries, women, people from underrepresented communities, and immigrants overcame prejudices and social obstacles to make remarkable discoveries in science—but they weren’t the ones to receive credit in history books. People with more power, money, and prestige were remembered as the inventor of the telephone, the scientists who decoded the structure of DNA, and the doctor who discovered the cause of yellow fever. This heavily illustrated and designed two-color book aims to set the record straight and celebrate the nearly forgotten inventors and scientists who shaped our world today—and explains in simple terms the scientific concepts they uncovered.Sources. Author’s note. Two-color illustrations.
