Narrator Lisa Flanagan's bright, impassioned tones are perfect for this memoir by Elkins-Tanton, a planetary scientist, professor, and NASA lead investigator. Flanagan's ease with conveying complex scientific terminology and concepts, as well as her consistent and enthusiastic pacing, helps listeners absorb subject matter that may be unfamiliar. Much of this memoir focuses on Elkins-Tanton's professional accomplishments and interests, including team-building and advocacy for gender equality in academic and scientific communities. Elkins-Tanton also reveals her personal challenges, including ovarian cancer and childhood sexual trauma. While this memoir will be best appreciated by those with a strong interest in planetary formation and geology, Flanagan's steady and engaged performance creates an easy listening experience for a general audience.
