Anne Wright & Personal Science

April 14, 2022

Summarizing Anne Wright’s description of how a person coping with chronic health issues progresses through the process of self-research.

Sara Riggare created this animation inspired by Anne Wright’s essay, Reflections on the BodyTrack Project. We were highly influenced by Wright’s work, which we cite in the introductory section of our book Personal Science: Learning to Observe.

We’ve made an almost finished draft of the book available in an “early access” edition via LeanPub so that people with a strong interest in self-tracking and personal science can read it. Please let us know what you think. LeanPub permits sell the early access draft using a “pay-what-you-wish” system..
