If, like me, you know nothing about the scientific achievements of the late actress, Hedy Lamarr, consider reading Richard Rhodes’ book, Hedy's Folly: The Life and Breakthrough Inventions of Hedy Lamarr, the Most Beautiful Woman in the World
. Lamarr worked with composer George Antheil and they came up with a technology during World War II that is used today in cell phones: frequency hopping. Thanks to Rhodes’ lively writing, this book will entertain interested readers from beginning to end.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
