Editorial Reviews

Review

"Roach ferrets out basic truths and endless absurd details amid mountains of dry science on her chosen subject. . . . It’s a wonderful read, sprinkled with facts you can quote to amaze your friends."
San Francisco Chronicle

"[Mary Roach] is a bold, tenacious, and insatiable reporter. . . . A greatly satisfying romp."
New York Times Book Review

"Roll over, Kinsey. Mary Roach has done it again.... Bonk proves that full-bodied research can be riveting."
O, The The Oprah Magazine

"Roach is a fearless and witty reporter."
Wall Street Journal

"[An] account that is at once revealing―alarmingly so―and very very funny. She studs (forgive me) her journey with a multitude of knee-crossing bits of fact that will enliven bedtime conversation everywhere."
Erik Larson, author of Devil in the White City
