"What is genius? How is it recognized, why is it important-and why do 90 percent of Americans believe right now that geniuses are more likely to be men? New York Times bestselling journalist Janice Kaplan dives in, both to explore the question and to celebrate women geniuses past and present. Even in a time of rethinking women's roles, genius is narrowly defined and understood as being male. When people are asked to name a genius, their answers are predictable-Albert Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci, Steve Jobs. But in one survey, the only female genius anyone could name was Marie Curie. Janice Kaplan, the New York Times bestselling author of The Gratitude Diaries, set out to determine why the extraordinary work of so many women has been brushed aside. Using her unique mix of memoir, narrative, and inspiration, she makes surprising discoveries about women geniuses now and throughout history, in fields from music to robotics. Through interviews with neuroscientists, psychologists, and dozens of women geniuses at work in the world today-including Nobel Prize winner Frances Arnold and AI expert Fei-Fei Li-she proves that genius isn't just about talent. It's about having that talent recognized, nurtured, and celebrated. Across the generations, even when they face less-than-perfect circumstances, women geniuses have created brilliant and original work. In The Genius of Women, you'll learn how they ignored obstacles and broke down seemingly unshakable barriers. The geniuses in this moving, powerful, and very entertaining book are an inspiration to everyone who wants to find their own path and move forward with passion"-- Provided by publisher.
