This inspirational book celebrates the lives and achievements of brilliantly original, convention-defying scientists - both men and women - who trod the road less traveled, overcame great odds, and changed the world.

Inside this beautifully illustrated full-color book, you will find the fascinating stories of 16 pioneering figures of strikingly different backgrounds: people of varied ethnicities, nationalities, genders, lifestyles, and wealth. What they all have in common - other than their genius - is their bravery, their resilience, and their ability to think beyond the bounds of established convention.

This innovative and boldly visual book will inspire readers to follow in the footsteps of these STEM heroes and spark their curiosity in the history of science.

Our trailblazing scientists include such figures as:

• Valentina Tereshkova, the extraordinary first woman in space.

• Marie Sklodowska Curie, the great pioneer of radioactivity, and first person to win two Nobel prizes.

• Galileo Galilei, the great physicist who bravely stood by his cosmic theories in the face of the Roman Inquisition.

• Katherine Johnson, the "human computer" who played a key part in NASA's space programme.

• Stephen Hawking, the world-famous physicist who overcame physical paralysis to transform our understanding of black holes.

About The Series: Trailblazers celebrates the achievements of men and women from across the arts and sciences - from computer scientists to sculptors. By sharing their life stories and amazing accomplishments, this series will inspire a new generation.

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    Birgitta Johansson

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
