This 1974 biography draws on documents and interviews with three people who worked with Marie Curie to provide a realistic perspective of that eminent scientist, who was a woman ahead of her times. The author, Robert Reid, a chemist and science writer, details both the scientific and personal aspects of the two-time Nobel laureate. Her scientific triumphs are contrasted with the tragic death of her husband Pierre and the well-known scandal involving Paul Langevin. The work gives a compassionate view of Marie Curie and those whose lives she touched.
