In Just Say Yes (D&M $34.95), due out in September, Bob McDonald offers a memoir spanning his early struggles in his illustrious career in science journalism. Despite dropping out of university due to academic challenges, McDonald’s passion for science remained undiminished. Through perseverance and enthusiasm, he transitioned from doing public demonstrations to becoming a national figure as the host of CBC Radio’s “Quirks and Quarks.” His memoir reflects on overcoming fear of failure, tackling life-transforming challenges, and rubbing elbows with scientific luminaries like Chris Hadfield and Stephen Hawking. With McDonald’s trademark pace and humor, Just Say Yes promises to inspire readers in new ways. 9781771624206
