Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-9- Both books are attractively laid out, with open formats and ample reproductions and full-color photos. However, one is significantly more successful than the other. Curie is elegantly written and flows smoothly, creating a balanced portrayal of the scientist's life. It details her struggles, from juggling her personal and professional lives to succeeding in the "man's world" of science. By contrast, Edison's accomplishments are presented in technical detail that sometimes bogs down a bit. Also, some of the discussions of the inventor's business partnerships are confusing and unnecessary for an introductory biography. Linda Tagliaferro's Thomas Edison (Lerner, 2003) is a better choice.-Kristen Oravec, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Strongsville, OH Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
