9780195120110: Marie Curie: And the Science of Radioactivity (Oxford Portraits in Science)

Marie Curie discovered radium and went on to lead the scientific community in studying the theory behind and the uses of radioactivity. She left a vast legacy to future scientists through her research, her teaching, and her contributions to the welfare of humankind. She was the first person to win two Nobel Prizes, yet upon her death in 1934, Albert Einstein was moved to say, "Marie Curie is, of all celebrated beings, the only one whom fame has not corrupted." She was a physicist, a wife and mother, and a groundbreaking professional woman. This biography is an inspirational and exciting story of scientific discovery and personal commitment.

Oxford Portraits in Science is an on-going series of scientific biographies for young adults. Written by top scholars and writers, each biography examines the personality of its subject as well as the thought process leading to his or her discoveries. These illustrated biographies combine accessible technical information with compelling personal stories to portray the scientists whose work has shaped our understanding of the natural world.

Review:


"This well-written account of the life and work of the Polish-born French chemist provides and in-depth look at the person as well as the scientist whose work with radioactivity led to two Nobel Prizes."--The Horn Book Guide


"An intelligent chronicle of Curie's life, from her struggle to educate herself in Russian-occupied Poland to her successes in France; her pioneering work with her husband; and her troubles and triumphs after his death.... A perceptive and informative biography."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)


"While there are a number of effective biographies of Marie Curie available, this one has the advantage of focusing attention on the scientific aspects of her discoveries and presenting her life for an older audience."--School Library Journal


"A fascinating profile that combines personal information not found in other YA resources with a fairly detailed account of Curie's research.... A chronology and an extensive bibliography round out a book that will be a valuable addition to both school and public library collections."--Booklist
