    I found this book inspiring as a narrative but so frustrating as a literary work Reading about the accomplishments of an unsung hero of science made me want to dive into my own work, which makes the book a worthwhile read Yet I wanted to take a red pen to the book and send it back to the editor with the recommendation that it be returned to the author for major revisions Dr Portugal clearly did extensive research in order to do this biography justice, it is a shame that the editors at MIT Press did not have a higher bar for publication In sum a compelling and exciting read, but really needs some editing.
