Product description

Review

‘The best kind of lavatory reading.’ Sunday Telegraph
‘Sassy sensibility and good-humoured gusto.’ The Times
‘Witty, illuminating and at times astonishing.’ Mail on Sunday
‘Gulp is an unalloyed pleasure.’ Fortean Times
‘No human organ goes unprodded in this epic quest for eupeptic enlightenment.’ The Economist
‘This is a wonderful read, with insight and anecdotes that make for great dinner party discussions or an absorbing read on the toilet. Which is appropriate enough.’ BBC Focus
‘The funniest [science book this year] by far… almost every page made me laugh out loud.’ Sunday Times
‘Gulp is far and away her funniest and most sparkling book… A vastly entertaining pilgrimage down the digestive tract, with Roach as the wittiest, most valuable tour guide imaginable.’ New York Times
‘Insightful, sharp science writing that will have you snorting with laughter is Mary Roach’s speciality.’ New Scientist
‘Diverting and witty.’ The Lady
‘Anyone who can’t cope with being reduced to helpless fits of laughter in public should read it only in the privacy of their own home. Roach’s writing is quirky, lucid, faultlessly re¬searched and outrageously funny… such a pleasure to read.’ Sunday Business Post (Ireland)
‘Joyously funny and intrepidly smart.’ Saga
‘[Roach] writes clearly, with gallows humour… compelling.’ Evening Standard
‘Fabulous, illuminating and nauseously graphic.’ Bookseller
