In a voice of gentle gravitas, narrator Grover Gardner clearly conveys the complexities of the sciences in this dual biography. Orens's audiobook recounts the stories of Albert Einstein and Marie Curie, towering figures in scientific history. Einstein emerged from humble beginnings while working at a patent office; Curie's accomplishments in the field of radioactive elements were significant despite the deeply rooted patriarchy preventing women from advancing in the sciences. Their respective paths to prominence eventually crossed at the first Solvay conference for science and biology, culminating in their friendship of "radiology and relativity." Listeners unfamiliar with the intricacies of the photoelectric effect or radiology need not hesitate; Gardner's natural confidence keeps the proceedings clear and accessible.
