"The facts are amazing, both the life story and the...science: how Curie overcame discrimination against women and came from Poland to study at the Sorbonne; how she and her husband, Pierre, launched the nuclear age when they identified radium, a discovery for which they shared the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1903. After his death Marie became the first female professor in France and won a second Nobel Prize, for chemistry, in 1911. Best of all are the final pages that take excerpts from notes that concluded her 1923 biography of her husband"--Booklist.
