Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War

Questioning. Whenever questions enter Mary Roach’s fertile mind, she searches for answers, then shares them with readers, to our great benefit. Her latest book titled, 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. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Grunt from
