Abstract:
This book, written for a general audience, features the outstanding achievements of eleven women scientists. Their scientific accomplishments are even more remarkable when one considers he many obstacles they had to overcome. While these women played an important role in Noble Prize winning projects and similar endeavors, they were often not fully credited for their crucial part in such discoveries. It is interesting to note that Lise Meitner, one of the women in this book, was nominated fourteen times for the Nobel Prize—she was passed over fourteen times! Their inspiration lives, however, serve as excellent role models for young women. Unfortunately, the lives and accomplishments of these courageous women are not that well-known today.

  Pathfinders and Pioneers , 01/12/2009
Reviewer: William Smith
Pathfinders and Pioneers is an excellent book that succinctly and concisely encapsulates the lives and accomplishments of eleven very notable women in the fields of science and mathematics. These very accomplished women achieved prominence in their field primarily through their own drive and love of the discipline that informed their life’s work. I believe the book is a “must” read for all, but especially young women who have an interest in science and mathematics. Dr. Bobonich’s background in the sciences permits him to discuss the scientific concepts in the book in a way that is comprehensible to those without such a background.
