Reviews

On Sep 22 2007, Hazelwood_Booksellers said:
In this monumental work, Susan Quinn, takes us intriguingly deeper into the life of Marie Curie than has ever been brought forth to the reader before. Meticulously referenced via heretofore unavailable personal journals of Marie Curie's, friend's testimonials, and other documents, Quinn presents a richly intimate biography of the woman we only thought we knew. She opens us to a complete insight of the woman and the scientist. Her life, loves, and work. Her passions, triumphs, and tragedies. Quinn strips away the superficial image we've grown accustom to, and gives us a very real person in terms of Marie Curie herself, the times she lived in, and the environment she worked in. A historical must read.
