Join Mary Roach for an incredibly fascinating and wildly entertaining adventure through our hearty digestive system. Along the way, we encounter wacky scientists, strange diets, bizarre medical fads, and much more. Even though we know how the story ends, the journey along the way is really quite miraculous (and in the hands of Ms. Roach-hilarious!).— Julie
Like all of Roach's books, Gulp is as much about human beings as it is about human bodies.
