Hennar siste bok Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong and the New Research That's Rewriting the Story (2017) vann Physics Worlds pris for årets beste bok, og Inferior var også blant finalistane til Goodreads Choice Awards.

I 2019 kjem Angela Saini med ny bok: Superior: The Fatal Return of Race Science.

Saini is a meticulous researcher whose attention to detail is evident (..) It is my hope that this important book encourages scientists and educationists of the need for more evidence-based approaches to ensure equality and diversity in science.

JESS WADE, PHYSICS WORLD - om Inferior

An enlightening account that shatters gender stereotypes. (..) Angela Saini paints a disturbing picture of just how deeply sexist notions have been woven into the fabric of scientific research – and how they are still being perpetuated within the science community today.
