I’ve been a fan of Mary Roach’s since my medical student daughter gave me a copy of “Bonk”. That book addressed various ways in which we have sexual experiences and I found Mary Roach to be both thorough and hilarious. She addressed a serious topic with wonderful attention to detail and very funny comment.
My Planet has the same Mary Roach feel. While she’s not addressing one specific topic in this offering, she maintains the same refreshing, funny look at life. This appears to be a series of columns and I enjoyed reading every one.
