Publisher's Summary

Discover the remarkable life of Hedy Lamarr....
Free BONUS Inside! 

Hedy Lamarr was a rare kind of woman. She was not only a strikingly beautiful actress who took Hollywood by storm in the 1940s, but she was also an inventor - and not just any inventor. Hedy Lamarr’s work with radio frequencies is credited with paving the way for wi-fi. It seems that the greatest bomb that this bombshell dropped would only fully explode until the last years of her life because when Lamarr passed away in the year 2000, the computing world was just then mainstreaming many of her ideas. 

Sadly, as amazing as her early career was, in later life, Lamarr became reclusive and had very limited contact with the outside world. It is perhaps ironic that it was the ideas of this recluse that would bring so many people together in the modern world of interconnectedness. In this book, we delve deep into the full unvarnished life and legacy of the woman we know as Hedy Lamarr. 

Discover a plethora of topics such as:

  • The Runaway Bride
  • The Controversy of Lamarr’s Adopted Son
  • Hedy During World War II
  • Lamarr’s Last Film
  • Arrested for Shoplifting
  • Hedy’s Disappearing Act
  • And much more!

Straightforward Biography

I really enjoyed the series of books and how they condense a persons life into short easy to understand chapters. Using her own words to start off each chapter was a nice touch. The narrator is clear and consistent. I’m glad it ended on one of her triumphs.
