Lab Girl
Lab Girl | Hope Jahren
An illuminating debut memoir of a woman in science; a moving portrait of a longtime friendship; and a stunningly fresh look at plants that will forever change how you see the natural world Acclaimed scientist Hope Jahren has built three laboratories in which shes studied trees, flowers, seeds, and soil. Her first book is a revelatory treatise on plant lifebut it is also so much more. Lab Girl is a book about work, love, and the mountains that can be moved when those two things come together. It is told through Jahrens remarkable stories: about her childhood in rural Minnesota with an uncompromising mother and a father who encouraged hours of play in his classrooms labs; about how she found a sanctuary in science, and learned to perform lab work done with both the heart and the hands; and about the inevitable disappointments, but also the triumphs and exhilarating discoveries, of scientific work. Yet at the core of this book is the story of a relationship Jahren forged with a brilliant, wounded man named Bill, who becomes her lab partner and best friend. Their sometimes rogue adventures in science take them from the Midwest across the United States and back again, over the Atlantic to the ever-light skies of the North Pole and to tropical Hawaii, where she and her lab currently make their home. Jahrens probing look at plants, her astonishing tenacity of spirit, and her acute insights on nature enliven every page of this extraordinary book. Lab Girl opens your eyes to the beautiful, sophisticated mechanisms within every leaf, blade of grass, and flower petal. Here is 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, as you discover along the way the person you were meant to be.

As I read the first chapters, Jahren's dispassionate tone was hard for me to empathize with & not being a plant person (I underwatered a cactus, so there's my botanical resume for you), I didn't think this was for me. Then I began to grow fond of Hope & Bill's friendship & invested in their adventures. I also appreciate her reflections on her mental health & professional struggles. Not something I would've picked up on my own, but glad I read it.

I‘m listening to this on audio while working and after this particular passage I had to bring up my kindle copy and share with y‘all cause it‘s just too bizarre to keep to myself (tho given the popularity of the book I‘m fairly certain a good amount of you have already read this 😄)

I‘m really enjoying this book and Hope‘s life and love of science... and I‘m also loving oddball Bill and Hope‘s relationship with him.

No, Bill. It‘s not normal.

This was a great #audiorun listen, especially once I sped the narration up a tad! The author reads it well. A few times she obviously teared up, so I may have cried a bit on a couple runs. 😂😭 This memoir kept me listening- loved her passion for trees/plants/soil, her friendship with Bill, her marriage and child, the struggle of being a female scientist with bipolar disorder, and her love of reading. I could see myself revisiting this someday. ❤️

Well...the stuff about trees was good. And actually, I enjoyed the beginning about her childhood & her interesting Scandinavian-in-Minnesota upbringing. But by the halfway point (maybe sooner) I started getting quite bored. Way too much about random shit (like 6 pages about her coworker‘s haircut) & oddly little about her actual work. Lovely prose about flora, some good commentary on sexism in science/academia, but overall thin & tedious. 2/5 ⭐️

Laughterhp Yeah, I had to bail on this audiobook. I think around the time she started talking about his haircut... 3mo
alisonrose @Laughterhp Right?? I still can‘t get over how much ink she spilled about this dude‘s damn hair. 3mo

...female professors & departmental secretaries are the natural enemies of the academic world, as I was privileged to overhear discussions of my sexual orientation & probable childhood traumas ... thru the paper thin walls of the break room adjacent to my office. By these means I learned that altho I was in desperate need of a girdle, I was better off than [another] female professors, who‘d never lose all that baby weight by working all the time.

Another long day of studying with a quick #audiorun! Ran on a treadmill mostly to make sure I didn't get over enthusiastic and run too fast. 😂 I have a race in two days so I don't want to use up all my energy! This audiobook, written and read by Hope Jahren, is such good company for runs. I feel like I know her and Bill and am invested in their lives. As a side note, it's going to rain in the Bay Area today! 😄🌧️ #NFNov @Clwojick @rsteve388

Enjoyed a midmorning #audiorun today and several hours of reading and other schoolwork at home and at the library. No class this week because my professors are at the SBL/AAR conference! It's giving me the much needed time to work on my final round of projects, papers, and presentations due before the end of the semester. So nice to spend a few minutes running with Hope Jahren in the sunshine as a break. 😊 #NFNov @Clwojick @rsteve388

I struggle to read non-fiction. I‘ve always thought I might enjoy this book, but kept avoiding it anyway because not fiction. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Thanks to #readingwomenchallenge for the ‘featuring a woman in science‘ prompt... I LOVED this book!

The science was fascinating (I love the way she talks about trees!) and Hope Jahren‘s stories of her life were even more so. Such a smart, accomplished woman with an honest and compelling story.

cont‘d ⬇️

sprainedbrain I really enjoyed her sense of humor, her relationship with Bill, her motherhood anecdotes, and all of the literary references.

I listened to the audiobook: I do love a memoir read by the author, and this was no exception, but wow... it seemed even slower paced than most books. I had to speed it up to 2x (1.75 is my normal speed these days). 😬

For me, curiosity-driven science is a very interesting researching field, especially in the connection with nature. How fascinating is the fact that the trees have memory, that they can decide things⁉️ This heartwarming story is presentation of a complicated life of a scientist, from personal to professional struggles/sacrifices, and this story is also beautiful, simple ode to the nature, friendship and patience.

Although some of the chapters detailing experiments and in depth plant knowledge dragged a bit for me, this was overall an enjoyable read. Not being a “lab girl” myself, I did find myself skimming some of the more science heavy sections but really enjoyed the memoir portions. I think everyone needs a Bill in their lives - a friend that sticks by you through it all. I also really want to go out and plant some trees in the backyard now.

This is getting a pick from me but just barely. I would have liked to hear a lot more about her work and a lot less about random stories that happened along the way. Also, I get that she was trying to be both and writer and scientist, but the literary references and overly flowery prose cane off to me as trying way too hard. Parts were really interesting though. #readingwomenchallenge #womanwithamentalillness

This is a difficult book for me to review because I have a lot of respect for Hope Jahren, not only for her contributions to science but also for her willingness to be so vulnerable about professional, as well as, personal struggles. Unfortunately, botany and geochemistry just don‘t really interest me. This memoir is well written and is loved by many, I just don‘t think I‘m the right reader for it.

Strange but charming. There were entire chapters I could‘ve done without but also memorable moments that had me laughing out loud. As the child of a field biologist, I couldn‘t help but see him, his colleagues, and our family in Hope, Bill, and her many lab techs and students. True insight into the worries of modern scientists but also tying in the beauty and wonder that they seem to see and experience all around them.

Completed for “something with science” in #nonfiction2019, this memoir details Jahren‘s life as she works to become a paleobiologist. It also touches on larger themes in the scientific community, including the current problems with securing funding, the over-saturation of the market with scientists, and the sexism that female scientists face in the field.

I wanted to love this book and connect with the author but her voice for the audiobook made me bail. She sounds sad and weak throughout, when I don‘t think she actually is, and she overdramatizes any lines that I think I‘d actually enjoy just reading to myself (anywhere she uses hyperbole or personification or any other literary device). I‘d like to try this again in the future but I definitely do not recommend the audiobook.

This is Jahren‘s memoir of becoming a scientist and what goes on in a typical university lab. It is also a memoir of her life, touching on motherhood, falling in love, finding a family, and finding herself. It is very much a “science book” in that she discusses the nuances of paleobotany (her field), yet it‘s extremely readable and engaging.

Really worthwhile read. And beautifully written. Really accessible account of what it's like to be a scientist. Having been a scientist for a while myself, it definitely rung true, although she is much more passionate about it than I was (hence why I now write about it, rather than doing it!). The lack of funding for science and the constant struggle for grants seems to be a problem everywhere.
Bonus: I learnt lots of cool things about trees
