This revealing autobiography of occupational medicine pioneer Alice Hamilton tells how she helped change history and the reasons for her unprecedented success in what was truly a male-dominated profession. Dr. Hamilton, in whose name AIHA has established an annual achievement award, was a leading authority on lead poisoning and other industrial hygiene concerns years before AIHA was even formed. This book provides insight into her personality, her humor, her beliefs, and, most importantly, her determination to make the world a safer place. Book includes an updated Foreword by the American Industrial Hygiene Association.
