Mary Roach has been described as "America's funniest science writer," not a superlative that one would expect that an author on a book about human cadavers would receive. In her latest effort, the author of Stiff and Packing for Mars takes us on an incredible voyage down our gullets and into dark digestive regions where more timid observers dare not go. Thanks to her apparently unflagging curiosity, Roach is willing to ask and answer essential questions, like "Why doesn't our stomach consume itself?" and "How long can an oyster live inside us?" Simply put, Gulp will make you gasp with delight; another Discover author continues to do good and make us proud.
