If Mary Roach isn't your favorite science writer by now, well, neighbor, you've been missing out. A regular contributer to National Geographic and a frequent speaker, Mary Roach is absolutely fantastic when it comes to exploring a topic -- serious, but also with her tongue firmly planted in cheek and a raconteur's ability to deliver a story.
I just got my reader's copy of her new book and I am totally pumped!
Her first book explored the realms of the dead.
Then she moved on to things that went bump in the night.
Then she moved on to the vast unknown frontier of sex. This book had me totally weirded out, grossed out, and in stitches.
I give you the wonderful Mary Roach!
