Lab Girl
    2017-May-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

This book is the winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for autobiography*.

Geobiologist Hope Jahren has spent her life studying trees, flowers, seeds, and soil. “Lab Girl” is her revelatory treatise* on plant life—but it is also a celebration of the lifelong curiosity, humility, and passion that drive every scientist.

In these pages, Jahren takes us back to her childhood, where she spent hours in unfettered* play in her father’s college laboratory. She tells us how she found a sanctuary* in science, learning to perform lab work “with both the heart and the hands.” She introduces us to Bill, her brilliant, eccentric* lab manager. And she extends the mantle* of scientist to each one of her readers, inviting us to join her in observing and protecting our environment. Warm, luminous, compulsively readable, “Lab Girl” vividly demonstrates the mountains that we can move when love and work come together.

This is not a simple “I was born, grew up and lived” story. It reads like a novel, with plot twists*, heroes, villains* and a happy ending.

Jahren was born and grew up in small-town southeastern Minnesota, just a few miles north of the Iowa border. She completed her Ph.D. at the University of California at Berkeley in 1996, and then took an Assistant Professor position at the Georgia Institute of Technology. In 1999 she was hired by Johns Hopkins University and went on to become the first woman ever to be promoted with tenure* within their Earth and Planetary Sciences Department (est. 1876). The book is available at online bookstores like jd.com.
