Fuzz: When Nature Breaks the Law
Praise for Mary Roach
There is much to enjoy about Mary Roach--her infectious awe for quirky science and its nerdy adherents, her one-liners.She is beloved, and justifiably so.
-- Jon Ronson, New York Times Book Review
Our most consistently entertaining science journalist.Roach goes where other writers wouldn't dare.And her search produces images--a kind of technopoetry--that are hard to forget.
-- O, The Oprah Magazine
Nobody does weird science quite like [Mary Roach].
-- Lexi Pandell, Wired
[Mary Roach] is a bold, tenacious, and insatiable reporter.[She] has a knack for posing the embarrassing, nonlinear and too obvious questions that others are always afraid to ask.
-- Pamela Paul, New York Times Book Review
[Roach's books are] meticulously researched, beautifully written, and disturbingly funny.Roach's prose is a triumph--an engaging blend of anecdote, research, and reflection.She's the most courageous--and empathetic--science writer we've got.
-- Emily Rapp Black, Boston Globe
Roach excels in capturing science's 'foreign country' aspect--roaming as a stranger in a strange land among its weird norms and novelties, grand monomaniacal passions, practitioners' idiosyncrasies and obscure lexicon.She writes exquisitely about the excruciating.
-- Stephen Phillips, Los Angeles Times
