the life and breakthrough inventions of Hedy Lamarr, the most beautiful woman in the world
This was a fascinating book. It talked about Hedy Lamarr, the famous actress, but only to set up the story of her inventions. She and a music composer friend came up with spread spectrum technology in an attempt to help out the US navy with torpedoes, which the navy rejected. The got a patent on the technology, however, and it proved to be the basis for wireless phones, Bluetooth networks, GPS devices, and military communications. I learned a lot and enjoyed finding out what drove her to invent while still being an actress. The book is a little slow at first, but picks up as it goes along.
