Now for the first time, Oxford offers the general public a series of readable, accessible biographies of major scientists. These illustrated biographies combine intelligible technical information with compelling personal stories to portray the scientists whose work has shaped our understanding of the natural world. In this inspiring biography, Naomi Pasachoff reveals the many sides of Marie Curie: wife, mother, professional woman, scientist, and celebrity. Throughout her life, Curie's passion for science propelled her to make do with little. Her first laboratory was an unused corner in her husband Pierre's workplace. Her second was a rude shed, where her experiments with uranium led to her discovery of radioactivity and to two Nobel Prizes. Pasachoff also investigates touchier episodes of Curie's life; her affair with a married colleague after her husband's death, and the harsh treatment she received from the French press. Using clear, understandable language, Pasachoff details Curie's scientific discoveries and the legacy she left through her research, her teaching, and her lifelong commitment to the welfare of humankind.

Learn about the life and work of Marie Curie, who risked her life for science. The winner of not one, but two, Nobel Prizes for Physics and Chemistry, Marie Curie discovered two elements, radium and polonium, which cannot be broken down any further by chemical means. Her work was her salvation, leading her from bouts of depression and fueling her to succeed in a world of "no girls allowed." Marie married Pierre Curie, a brilliant scientist, who gave up his research to help her move forward with hers (which was more ground-breaking). Despite the fact that Marie and her husband both died from overexposure to radiation, she would not have considered herself a martyr to science.
