Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Drawing on new archival material, including Curie's journal, this biography presents new information about her life in Poland; her partnership with her husband; her affair, after her husband's death, with a married scientist which nearly cost her the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1911; and the difficulty of being a female student in late 19th century Paris. Also clearly describes her scientific work and fits it into the larger story of the nuclear age.
