Marie Curie (Giants of Science)

Marie Curie (Giants of Science)

Talk about a "glowing reputation!"  Marie Curie, the woman who coined the term radioactivity, won not just one Nobel prize but two, in physics and in chemistry, both supposedly girl-phobic sciences. As with her previous star-studded biographies of Leonardo da Vinci, Isaac Newton, and Sigmund Freud, all three chosen as ALA Notable Books, Kathleen Krull offers readers a fascinating portrait of this mythic "giant of science" who abhorred publicity. And she also places Curie's ground-breaking discovery of two elements within the framework of science at that time.--from the publisher
