The “Curious Science” of Mary Roach

    Mary Roach isn’t afraid to go there. After tackling the “curious science” of cadavers, outer space and the human digestive system (Stiffed, Packing for Mars, Gulp), the bestselling author explores the military in her new book, “Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War” (W.W. Norton & Company). In Grunt, Roach uses her trademark wit, warmth and curiosity to dissect the fascinating science of keeping soldiers alive – before, during and long after battle.
