There's Something About Mary

Author blurb --- Mary Roach

Where do all these wonderful women science writers come from (quite a change from the old days)! Former freelancer and non-scientist Mary Roach has now entertained the public with three best-selling simply-titled, witty, humorous, yet fact-based excursions into quirky corners of science ("Stiff," "Spook," and "Bonk"), and hopefully her insatiable curiosity will bring us many more to come. If there's such a thing as 'escapist' scientific writing (fun, but you still learn stuff) I'd use the label here.

Her own interesting webpage here.

and couple of articles on her here and here.

Her books on Amazon here.
