Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal by Mary Roach

The author Mary Roach is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.  It seems like she can make even the most mundane facts and information fascinating, and her propensity to research far from typical subject matter (oftentimes, subjects that would make many people queasy) is especially appealing as well.  In this short read, you will learn answers to many questions you may have asked yourself, as well as many more you haven’t thought about before.  Ranging from information regarding eating to bowel movements, chewing to stomach acid, and everything in between, this book is a phenomenal read.  While the information may not be for everyone, those who enjoy anatomy and physiology, this is an excellent book.  As always with books by Mary Roach, this is an entertaining read to say the least.
