Gulp - Mary Roach

Sub-title: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal

I'd previously read Mary's book, "Stiff" about cadavers.  This book covers the digestive system, from nose/mouth all through to the other end.  She has a light-hearted style, interspersing asides with the medical facts and history of this vitally important body function.  I enjoyed learning about the evolution of medical treatment and diseases affecting the digestive trac.  Quirky read.
