#popsugarreadingchallenge prompt 22: by or about a woman in STEM.

I really liked this book. I loved the mix of science with personal stories; I loved Black’s scientific distance and deep emotional connection to the bodies she works with; and I loved how I felt both chatted to and educated, all at the same time.
For me this book was a perfect combination – a hugely successful woman, death and a memoir – ticks many of my reader boxes.

If you like Mary Roach then you will enjoy this author too.
