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.
