What should have been a fascinating story suffered from boring writing Also the whole point was to show how Lamarr was a multi faceted woman inventor actress etc but the majority of the book is about her clothes looks and acting Occasionally it s mentioned that she read a book about physics but not much else is given to help us understand her scientific side A disappointing book about a fascinating woman 25
