Lab Girl by renowned scientist, Hope Jahren, is a book about work and love, and the mountains that can be moved when those two things come together. Told through remarkable stories about her childhood in rural Minnesota, about how she found a sanctuary in science, and about the inevitable disappointments, but also the triumphs and exhilarating discoveries, of scientific work.
Jahren's probing look at plants, her astonishing tenacity of spirit, and her acute insights on nature enliven every page of this extraordinary book. Explore an eloquent demonstration of what can happen when you find the stamina, passion, and sense of sacrifice needed to make a life out of what you truly love.
