Staff Reviews

This book has been getting awards and recognition everywhere- and for good reason. Lab Girl is a stunning memoir of a geobiologist whose passion, determination, and lifelong curiosity led her to a fascinating life in science. Jahren's narrative voice takes readers into the wonder of plant life and tells her life story with humor, emotion, powerful honesty, and excellently written tales of her trials, triumphs, and adventures as a lab and field scientist.

“This book has it all: nature, love, science, drama, heartbreak, joy, and plenty of dirt. Not since Cheryl Strayed's Wild have I read such a rich and compelling nonfiction narrative. Lab Girl is the story of Jahren's life in science, and her writing on the wonders of nature will renew your sense of awe. But more than that, it is an exploration of friendship, mental illness, parenthood, and the messiness of life. The only flaw -- these pages fly by too quickly, leaving you wondering what you could possibly read next that will be just as good.”
