Author: Mary Roach
This is my 3rd book for the year
In Gulp, Roach takes us down a path (literally) into our bodies and the bodies of animals. She delves into subjects on taste and smell, all the way to the miracle of fecal transplants. She meets with scientist and even criminals to discover the inner workings of the body. She researchers were a lot of techniques got their start and where they are now.
Another great book by Roach. It is well written, and lightly whitty, and I learned quite a bit. She has a great way of taking even the most "ichy" topics and making them interesting to learn about. She does a great job taking a look at things we don't often consider and giving it a spin that makes it an interesting (instead of dry) read.
