In a new book, Pulitzer Prize winning writer Richard Rhodes tells the behind-the-scenes story of movie star—and inventor—Hedy Lamarr, “the most beautiful woman in the world.” Lamarr invented “frequency hopping,” a concept that’s still used in today’s wireless technology.
Richard Rhodes is a journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner for general nonfiction (1988). He’s the author of Hedy’s Folly: The Life And Breakthrough Inventions of Hedy Lamarr (Doubleday, 2011).
