I love Mary Roach’s books, which cover topics from death and the afterlife to sex to our digestive system in a conversational, sometimes kind of gross way. I don’t know how she gets scientists and other professional people to answer some of her questions! If you’re the kind of person who loves to have random facts on hand to share with all of your friends and relatives and anyone within shouting distance, you will love this book.
