Publisher Description

The bestselling, "excellent…poignant—and scientifically lucid—portrait" (New York Times Book Review) of the remarkable Marie Curie.

Through family interviews, diaries, letters, and workbooks that had been sealed for over sixty years, Barbara Goldsmith reveals the Marie Curie behind the myth—an all-too-human woman struggling to balance a spectacular scientific career, a demanding family, the prejudice of society, and her own passionate nature. Obsessive Genius is a dazzling portrait of Curie, her amazing scientific success, and the price she paid for fame.

Meg's Jack Rusells ,

Good for book projects!

I am 11 years old and I found this book exquisitely good for any biography projects. Adults and teenagers will also agree with my opinion (it won't be to easy. I am just an advanced reader).
