Marie Curie
Describes the life and work of the scientist who won two Nobel Prizes and died of radiation poisoning from years of investigating the dangerous elements that she herself had discovered. Readers will learn about the dark side of a woman and her devotion to science--the politics of science, her depression, and the drive to succeed. It is a brutally honest portrayal of a woman in a field dominated by men.
