With wicked wit and a dash of morbid curiosity, this provocative narrative from the author of National Geographic's popular Gory Details blog takes us on a fascinating journey through an astonishing new reality where our weirdest and wildest fascinations will be illuminated.
No subject is off-limits for acclaimed science reporter Erika Engelhaupt, who boldly investigates the gross, the strange, the taboo, and the morbid. From the world's most murderous mammals to the research biologist who stung himself with every conceivable insect, from the mites who live in our faces to the most sordid sex in the animal kingdom, here are oft-ignored but surprisingly alluring facets of biology, nature, psychology, and more.
Featuring top-notch reporting, interviews with leading scientists, and a large dose of humor, this entertaining book answers all the questions you were afraid to ask - and reveals real-world applications of science in all their glory.
