SummaryAdd a Summary
Author Mary Roach has been called "The funniest science writer in the country" by veritable New Yorker staff, and I heartily agree. Looking for a dry, Hite-Report like tome on sexuality? You sure won't find it here -- but what you will find (and not for the sex-squeamish) is an often-hilarious look at the statistics & factual research behind many of our socially uncomfortable questions. I enjoyed this read so much that I will be tracking down her other best seller, "Stiff : the curious lives of human cadavers", and "Spook: science tackles the afterlife."
