The Dark Lady of DNA by Brenda Maddox (2003): In 1962, Maurice Wilkins, Francis Crick, and James Watson received the Nobel Prize, but it was Rosalind Franklin's (1920-1958) data and photographs of DNA that led to their discovery. Tells a powerful story of a remarkably single-minded, forthright, and tempestuous young woman who was airbrushed out of the greatest scientific discovery of the twentieth century.
