The acclaimed author and historian Barbara Goldsmith has discovered the woman behind the icon we have come to believe in - an all-too-human woman trying to balance a spectacular scientific career with the obligations of family, the prejudice of society, the constant search for adequate funding, and the battle for recognition. Using original research to peel away the layers of myth, Goldsmith offers a dazzling portrait of Marie Curie, her amazing discoveries, and the immense price she paid for fame. Goldsmith is the best-selling author of 'The Straw Man,' 'Johnson v. Johnson,' and 'Other Powers.' 255p.
