Was Margaret Sanger a Venture Capitalist?

No.

But an interesting new book by Jonathan Eig frames the history of the first commercial birth control pill as a sort of Silicon Valley history of innovation. Although certain aspects of the book gave me pause, on the whole, I enjoyed it. It’s a page-turner, which isn’t something that can be said about most books in the history of medicine.

My review appears in the current issue of C&EN.
