Day 9 of #SciBookWishList features Gulp by Mary Roach

Today’s science book wish list recommendation is from Christina Fuentes Tibbit, Engagement Manager, and Anna Perman, Communities Manager at the BSA.

In this lively novel, delve into the alimentary canal travelling from mouth to rear, meeting scientists who tackle questions no one else thinks- or has the courage- to ask. Investigae the icky, taboo and underappreciated parts of the human body, and brace yourself for a truly eye opening journey into the human body.

Anna Perman, Communities Manager at the British Science Association believes that this book is “the best one yet” by Roach, and she particularly enjoyed the chapter about spit.

It’s a gross, but enthralling read.
