Description
 
Talk about a “glowing reputation”! Marie Curie, the woman who coined the term radioactivity, won not just one Nobel prize but two—in physics and in chemistry, both supposedly girl-phobic sciences.

When Marie Skłodowska was a little girl she learned many things at home. Her parents did not think that children should only learn in school. Marie's father, Władysław, read many books to her. Later Marie's daughters were also taught at home by various professors. For Marie every day was a chance to discover a fascinating world. Marie liked to help people. On the other hand, she didn't like jewelry, or beautiful clothes, or high-heeled shoes, which she compared to stilts. Marie knew five languages, she like to draw, play piano and read poetry. She said that a scientist was like a child in an enchanted, fairytale world. Fame and money meant little to her. Interesting experiences were what mattered. If you want to learn more about this ordinary, and at the same time extraordinary person, read this book!
