The picture on the cover should give a hint about her sense of humor and the pictures inside are witty and on target. I read anything she writes.

Humorous mix of sex and science

Next to A. J. Jacobs, Mary Roach must be one of the most obsessed authors writing today. Fortunately both obsess over interesting topics and write with a wonderful sense of humor. This is an adult book and some may be offended by the content. However, if you are a Mary Roach fan you know that her books are meant to entertain and enlighten. I picked up "Bonk" because I enjoyed "Stiff" a great deal. I had to find out -- if Mary Roach could make the study of cadavers a pleasant reading topic, imagine what she can do with the study of sex. She didn?t let me down.
