    Was more of a synopsis and review of her movies than anything else; wish there had been more than a page or so on her inventions.

    I've read a few of these Hourly History books and while I do enjoy them, it seems that every single one has a few weird phrases that could be ironed out with a bit more editing. The phrase "audience goers" is used several times here rather than "audiences" or "theater/film goers." Another is "they liked what they say" rather than "saw." Switching "alludes" with "eludes" is one I read in a previous Hourly History book. It seems like the author(s) might be relying too much on spellcheck rather than I've read a few of these Hourly History books and while I do enjoy them, it seems that every single one has a few weird phrases that could be ironed out with a bit more editing.

These books are good summaries of people and events. It's a shame to have weird phrasing regularly distracting from the subject matter.

    Hedy Lamarr was undoubtedly a beautiful woman.  I was disappointed there weren't more photos of her, her husbands, or in her roles on film. In fact, there was nothing more than the cover black-and-white photo.  It was great that the bio included her invention and patent for the military.  Actually, Hedy was more of an inventor than this book indicated. It was disappointing that she was on the outs with her children.  I would have liked to have known more about her reasoning.

    This is a lightweight easy read that is really just the basic highlights of her life and movie career. She was also a lightweight actress, but rather gorgeous which really was her main stock in trade. I am intrigued at her electronic invention and would have liked to find out more about this side of her life, but I will have to do that on the Internet. This is one for the fans and the curious, like me.

    Just a the Facts Our book club plans on reading Marie Benedict’s “The Only Woman In The Room” for our June selection. It is a novel faded in the life of Hedy Lamarr. When I saw Hourly Histories offered this short glimpse into Hedy’s life I decided to read it first. Good insight in to Lamarr’s life.

    Little known facts As a child I remember hearing her name. I remember the depictions of her beauty were the primary topics. I enjoyed this brief overview of Lamarr's life it makes me want to read more about her inventions and the struggles she must have endured being that beautiful. I wonder did anyone actually see her.

    World is not nice to beautiful women This the second biography that I’ve read and least flattering. The other spent considerable time explaining her inventions and escape from Austria.

    It was a quick read and enjoyable. Hedy Lamarr was an amazing woman who for a long time was judged by her looks and not by her incredible mind. I'm glad she got the recognition she deserved for her scientific inventions while she was still alive. It was a quick read and enjoyable.

    Pretty good for the Hourly History imprint. Would have liked a little bit more info about her inventions, but I guess I can always check out another book or two.

    A short read which highlights all major incidents in her life before dwelling deep on any topic. There could be more focus on her invention.

    A quick and enjoyable read. I was drawn to read this book, not so much as she was an actor, but that she had a keen interest in science and technology. Besides acting, Hedy Lamarr did help brainstorm the idea of frequency hopping originally for use in guiding torpedos, but later in the technology of mobile phones, "Trunked" radio systems, and other civilian and military communications.
