Do you like reading about science and medicine? Are you waiting on your hold on Hope Jahren's Lab Girl or Margot Lee Shetterly's Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race to arrive? We've compiled a list of books that just might pique your interest! There are some familiar names, such as Gina Kolata [Rethinking Thin] and Dava Sobel [Galileo's Daughter]; something to interest fans of Oliver Sacks - "the poet laureate of medicine" - but perhaps not so pithy as the works of Mary Roach.
