PUBLISHERW. W. Norton & Co.
CITYNew York, NY

This relatively short, intimate biography humanizes the legendary scientist Marie Curie without detracting from her accomplishments. Using personal documents available only after 1995, the author explores Curie's personality and relationships, including those with her father, Professor Sklodowski; sister, Bronya; husband, Pierre; daughters, Irene and Eve; son-in-law Frederic Joliot; associates, Paul Langevin and Andri Debierne, as well as her scientific peer, Lord Ernest Rutherford. The well-researched and readable work provides fresh perspectives on the personal and public life of the scientific icon.
