Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War
Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War, explores the science of how the military tries to keep its members healthy and safe. Any given topic could become a comprehensive book-length study, but Roach contains herself as she chooses to distill lots of observations into cogent anecdotes that both inform and entertain. She explores such diverse topics as heat exposure, shark repellent, sleep, and diarrhea. On these topics and others, readers can count on lively writing, interesting anecdotes and some sating of Roach’s curiosity and ours.
