Madame Curie: A Biography by Eve Curie
I’ve never been that into science, but I got this book for a project and quickly became a huge Madame Curie fan. She was a selfless BAMF who revolutionized everything we know about how the world works, and her story is as inspiring and touching as one would expect it to be. She is now one of my biggest heroes. Her daughter does an amazing job of capturing her mother’s essence, and you can feel her respect for her mother in every sentence. Wonderful book.
