Some biographies are written as novels, some are written as a PhD thesis; this one is more in the latter category. Although I'm interested in women's history and how pioneers in their fields proceed along their ground-breaking journeys, sometimes it's not the facts and the names and the dates, but the ideas and the mistakes and the thoughts that you really crave. This was so informative, perhaps too informative for my interest, as I kind of got bored reading about so many people and so many people's children, and who went where and with whom and where they lived and what they thought of mushrooms.

Perfect if you like a ton of research on a fascinating maverick, but too dry for my random interest in historical figures I've never before heard of.
