Book Description :

Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Autobiography A New York Times 2016 Notable Book National Best Seller Named one of TIME magazine’s "100 Most Influential People" An Amazon Top 20 Best Book of 2016 A Washington Post Best Memoir of 2016 A TIME and Entertainment Weekly Best Book of 2016 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 she’s studied trees, flowers, seeds, and soil. Her first book is a revelatory treatise on plant life—but 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 Jahren’s remarkable stories: about her childhood in rural Minnesota with an uncompromising mother and a father who encouraged hours of play in his classroom’s 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. Jahren’s 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.

Lab Girl by Hope Jahren | Summary & Analysis Preview: In her memoir Lab Girl, Hope Jahren describes the life she’s lived and the knowledge she’s learned as a scientist trying to find her way in the world. Focusing mostly on a period of professional development that stretches from 1997 to 2008, the bulk of the narrative follows Jahren from her first appointment as a professor in Atlanta to her current job at the University of Hawaii. Navigating personal and professional challenges including bipolar disorder, meager budgets, and sexist work environments, Jahren and her eccentric lab manager, Bill, learn a lot about themselves, each other, and the mysterious lives of plants. Growing up in Minnesota, Hope feels starved for human connection. Her parents and her three older brothers are quiet, distant, and seemingly emotionless. The only sure love in her life is the feeling she experiences in her father’s laboratory, a place where she feels happy and curious… PLEASE NOTE: This is summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

Book Description :

Cancer Ward examines the relationship of a group of people in the cancer ward of a provincial Soviet hospital in 1955, two years after Stalin's death. We see them under normal circumstances, and also reexamined at the eleventh hour of illness. Together they represent a remarkable cross-section of contemporary Russian characters and attitudes. The experiences of the central character, Oleg Kostoglotov, closely reflect the author's own: Solzhenitsyn himself became a patient in a cancer ward in the mid-1950s, on his release from a labor camp, and later recovered. Translated by Nicholas Bethell and David Burg.

Book Description :

From the headlines of today comes the ultimate adventure story of discovery. Two scientists unwittingly introduce a small tribe of prehistoric people living in isolation for a half million years to the ultimate modern predator: humanity. This is their adventure combining a clash of cultures, religious ardor with the oldest stories of all: the meaning of friendship and love. The two scientists, Sarah and Richard discover the existence of a living human ancestor, Homo floresiensis on an isolated tropical island. These small Hobbit-like creatures are not the Hobbits of JRR Tolkien¿s stories, but a small tribe of prehistoric people living in seeming isolation for nearly a half million years on the Indonesian island of Irmã Flores. In their unrelenting quest for knowledge, Sarah and Richard unintentionally expose these innocents to the onslaught of the modern world including corporate raiders, Indonesian pirates and religious zealots. In the process of discovery and befriending these ancient people, Sarah and Richard rediscover their own humanity and the opportunity to find true love. This as a rousing adventure book with serious undertones about our very definition of humanity, and how we treat the other sentient creatures that occupy our small planet. What is at the core of being human, and how are we systematically destroying those very same qualities that we hold so dear?

For fans of Beth Revis, Firefly, and Battlestar Galactica. As a child, Ava's adopted sister, Miyole, watched her mother take to the stars, piloting her own ship from Earth to space making deliveries. Now a teen herself, Miyole is finally living her dream as a research assistant on her very first space voyage. If she plays her cards right, she could even be given permission to conduct her own research and experiments in her own habitat lab on the flight home. But when her ship saves a rover that has been viciously attacked by looters and kidnappers, Miyole, along with a rescued rover girl named Cassia, embarks on a mission to rescue Cassia's abducted brother, and that changes the course of Miyole's life forever. Harrowing, provocative, and stunning, Sound begins roughly a decade after the action in the author's critically acclaimed Salvage, and is a powerful stand-alone companion.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From Tess Gerritsen, bestselling author of the Rizzoli & Isles series, her stunning first thriller! A beautiful young woman’s corpse is found dumped in a garbage-strewn alley. Now laid out in the office of medical examiner Kat Novak is an unidentified body that betrays no secrets—except for a matchbook clutched in one stiff hand, seven numbers scrawled inside. When a second victim is discovered, Kat begins to fear that a serial killer is stalking the streets, using a deadly drug to do his dirty work. The police are skeptical. The mayor won’t listen. One of the town’s most prominent citizens, with a missing daughter of his own, is also Kat’s chief suspect. As the death toll rises, Kat races to expose a deadly predator who is close enough to touch her. Praise for Tess Gerritsen “[The author] has a knack for creating great characters and mysterious plots that seem straightforward but also dazzle with complexity and twists.”—Associated Press “[Gerritsen] has an imagination that allows her to conjure up depths of human behavior so dark and frightening that she makes Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft seem like goody-two-shoes.”—Chicago Tribune “One of the most versatile voices in thriller fiction today.”—The Providence Journal Previously published as Peggy Sue Got Murdered

The Boathouse is the story of 13-year old Traci Johannson's encounter with an angel. It is early September, and as she begins her eighth grade year at East Harbor Junior High, Traci's life is complicated by the surprising good fortune of being chosen by "cool" Jackie Jonas as her new best friend. Happiest on the soccer field, science lab, sailing her vintage Blue Jay across Long Island Sound or working as a “puppy-walker”, Traci’s new friendship quickly embroils her in mystery, romance and unexpected adventure. Set among famous landmarks of Cold Spring Harbor and nearby Manhattan, The Boathouse is a funny, fast-moving tale of Traci’s quest for romance, excitement, and self-discovery. From the safety of home, Traci’s journey leads her on a midnight chase across the harbor, onto the glamorous set of TV soap opera, and with nearly fatal consequences, to an unforgettable night at Shea Stadium for the sold-out Diamond Jelly concert. A quest for adventure, independence and self-knowledge, Traci’s story is most importantly, an uplifting reaffirmation of the reality of an absolute Good and the power of self-determination.

Book Description :

This volume brings together a series of papers written by the authors over a period of 15 years, in combination with new material developed specifically for this volume. The result is a coherent vision of the uses of ethnographic methods in educational settings. The volume answers the need to compare and contrast ethnographic work from Britain and the United States. Three themes unite all of the chapters. First, there is a commitment to making the familiar strange - a vital first step for all ethnographers. Second, there is a commitment to reflexivity in data collection, analysis, theorising and writing the text. Third, there is a commitment to eclecticism and pragmatism in ethnographic research. The first chapter includes not only a diagnosis of the major faults in most published ethnographies of educational settings, but a set of strategies that scholars can adopt to avoid or counteract them. In the second half of the volume, chapters exemplify the different strategies and present data gathered in a variety of educational settings from schools to higher and professional education.
