Mary Roach, Author of Gulp -- Adventures on the Alimentary Canal
Oakland, California-based author Mary Roach has written books on such diverse popular science topics as death (Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers), the afterlife (Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife), Sex (Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex), and extraterrestrial life (Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void). The latest subject of her investigative -- and comedic -- curiosity is the tube that runs from our mouth to our, ahem, rear. In her newest book, Gulp, she takes readers on a crazy tour of the invisible realm known as our digestive system. She looks for the answers to questions you didn't even know you had, but come to think of it ... How much can you eat before you literally burst? Can constipation really kill you? Join America's funniest science writer for a fun and funky examination of the inner workings of the human body.
