Lab Girl by Hope Jahren
Geobiologist Hope Jahren has spent her life studying trees, flowers, seeds, and soil. This autobiography is a celebration of the lifelong curiosity, humility, and passion that drive every scientist. Jahren takes readers back to her Minnesota childhood, where she spent hours playing in her father's college laboratory. She introduces us to Bill, her brilliant and eccentric lab manager. And she invites all of us to join her in observing and protecting our environment. Lab Girl vividly demonstrates the mountains we can move when love and work come together.
