I was not expecting to enjoy this book anywhere near as much as I did. I’ve read (and loved) many Mary Roach books before but (I must confess) I was questioning how she could possibly make a book about the digestive tract interesting. She didn’t just make it interesting, she made it fascinating! In Roach’s capable hands, saliva was not just accessible but riveting. Nutrient absorption was engrossing. I was rapt reading her discussions of waste expulsion.

Who would have thought?
