Lab Girl

Invitation. So many memoirs are self-serving on the one hand or totally dysfunctional on the other. Readers will find something quite different in Hope Jahren’s memoir titled, Lab Girl. Jahren is a biologist, a prominent scientist, and her book is a subtle invitation to young women: this is a great life, consider becoming a scientist just like me. Her voice encourages close attention, her love of plants might become contagious, and her humor keeps the book moving along at a brisk pace. If any of that sounds interesting to you, chances are you will be delighted by this memoir. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Lab Girl from
