Madame Curie by Eve Curie

Eve Curie reveals the remarkable life story of her mother, Marya Sklodovska, better known to the world as Madame Curie. This sweet and tender account of her mother’s life tells the story of Marie’s love and devotion for her father and siblings, her husband Pierre, her daughters and her work. The life of Madame Curie is truly inspirational not only because of her many great contributions to science for which she was awarded two Nobel prizes but also because of her ability to overcome adversity and to see what really matters in life, family. For me, Marie Curie’s life exemplifies the saying "you can have it all."
