In this biography of Marie Curie, Pasachoff focuses on the woman behind the scientific work, highlighting the events and conditions of Curie's life rather than her scientific accomplishments. Curie’s relationships and decisions are described in a human and lyrical fashion. The author depicts Curie’s loves, from her marriage to Pierre to her affair with Paul Langevin.

The book is an interesting profile of Marie Curie’s personal life.
