Lost in Wonder: Imagining Science and Other Mysteries by Colette Brooks

Abstract:
There is exactly one mention of science outside the U.S. and Europe, a brief mention that Indian and China might beat the U.S. in nanotechnology. To my knowledge, all of the scientists discussed were white, and only a few women are mentioned. Of the women, the inventors of Stove Top brand boxed stuffing and slippers (is this science or product development?) are mentioned in the same section with Ada Lovelace, perhaps the first "computer" programmer. The majority of women mentioned in the book are baffled wives and sisters or UFO-spotters (there's a whole section on the search for extraterrestrial life and the UFO craze).
