Synopsis: In 1986, Rita Levi-Montalcini became only the fourth woman in history to receive the Nobel Prize in Medicine. After opening this evocative autobiography with a quotation from William Butler Yeats on the necessity of choosing perfection in either one's life or one's work, this brilliant scientist presents both her life and her work as examples of the beauty of imperfection.
