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, Không chấp nhận những suy nghĩ tiêu cực.. In these pages, Hope takes us back to her Minnesota childhood, where she spent hours in unfettered play in her father’s college laboratory, Không chấp nhận những suy nghĩ tiêu cực.. 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, Không chấp nhận những suy nghĩ tiêu cực.. And she extends the mantle of scientist to each one of her readers, inviting us to join her in observing and protecting our environment, Không chấp nhận những suy nghĩ tiêu cực.. Warm, luminous, compulsively readable, Lab Girl vividly demonstrates the mountains that we can move when love and work come together. Vậy thì tốt quá rồi!.
