"Two-time Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie did more to promote women in science than perhaps any other person. Her story is one of determination. Curie studied "illegally" at Warsaw University before attending the Sorbonne in France, graduating at the top of her class. She met Pierre, a brilliant scientist, by chance. After they were married, they worked side by side, leading to the discoveries of polonium and radium as well as many other crucial scientific finds. Their pioneering work is detailed in this accessible volume full of photographs and quotes that bring the personalities of these two scientists to life"-- Publisher.
