"different edition so page numbers aren't accurate, but so far it's talked about Cecil Rhodes building the early identity of South Africa, scientists balancing politics, nationalism and independence in Cold War America, and Rwandan adoption of informational technology as part of their rebuilding process.

Lab Girl by Hope Jahren
"“Because I am a female scientist, nobody knows what the hell I am, and it has given me the delicious freedom to make it up as I go along.” This memoir puts so many things together that it shouldn’t work, yet somehow – delightfully – does. With wit..." Read more of this review »

I listened to this in some serious chunks. I loved most of it - the stories of deciding to become a scientist, and memoirs of building a science lab, and explanations of how science is funded in the USA. Science, from the discoveries to the teaching ...more
Heidi is 75% done with Lab Girl: Well that was more than I knew about child birth, An interesting aside in the book, and somewhat unexpected but it makes sense that it would be in there, I suppose.

I enjoyed this book - I did a quick reread of the series before starting this new installment and that helped. I'm now anticipating the next one, hopefully with a shorter wait!
