This book describes Marie's struggles for funding and material in a predominantly masculine world, as well as her relationship with her husband Pierre and his untimely death. The book features full-colour illustrations which combine humour and accurate scientific detail. Here's the Science boxes illustrate and explain crucial technical information, while captions, a complete glossary and index combine to make this title an ideal educational text.
