Publisher's Summary

One of the most famous women of the 20th century, Marie Curie was a trailblazer in the truest sense. Known for her discovery of two radioactive elements, radium and polonium, Marie Curie was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize. She remains the only woman to win two Nobel Prizes in different sciences. 

From this audiobook, you will learn about:

  • Early life and loss
  • The Flying University
  • Nobel prizes
  • Scandals
  • Curie’s first World War efforts
  • The discovery that killed her
  • And much more!

Marie Curie lived by her own rules in a society marred by misogyny and xenophobia. A scientist, but also a loving wife and mother, she defied expectations as a matter of course. Curie also fought for her country during the First World War the best way she knew how - with science. There is much more to Marie Curie’s story than the discovery of the radioactive elements that eventually killed her.

A Clear Concise Information Filled Biography

This is a brief, information filled, biography. I use this reading as an adjunct to my larger studies of the history of France and European history. Obviously Marie Curie is a great person worthy of a longer biography. However this particular product fit my needs exactly. I learned a lot and enjoyed the experience. Thank You....
