Summary

In her new book, Lab Girl, Hope Jahren transforms the sedentary, slow-growing lives of plants into a vibrant series of stories that are interwoven with tales of her own research career. "In the end, I am not sure which is more extraordinary, the plants or the woman who studies them," writes reviewer Meg Lowman.
