This book will most appeal to plant ecologists, for the story of that field's development over the career of the author, or feminist (male or female) scientists, for the tale of Jean's career development and the attendant personal and professional struggles. More chemical ecology than a sleep-deprived new mother could totally handle, but I really loved the story and have so much respect for Dr. Langenheim.

A very good read for anybody interested in science. Many of the passages were quite vivid and easy to visualize. As a RMBL junkie I would have enjoyed a bit more detail on her impressions from her time in Gothic. Perhaps the absence of more information from when she taught is telling? I fully appreciated her description of OTS's struggles with cash flow in the 1970's.
