I'm rarely jealous of, let alone in awe of a fellow writer. I am both re Mary Roach: She does so much research to find so many wonderful stories that make even a non-book-reader read. So, it's my pleasure to say that my in-studio guest on the June 25, 2017 edition of Work with Marty Nemko is Mary Roach. She's written great books about orgasm, cadavers, traveling to Mars, and scientists' search for ghosts, but because my program must focus on career-related issues, I confine our conversation to her latest book: Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War. We'll talk about what it's really like to be a soldier, but from unusual perspectives, for example, what goes into creating their protective clothing, simulation-based training-, for example, in a virtual Kabul, bullets whizzing and soldiers gushing like garden hoses amid the wail of a call to prayer.
