STAFF REVIEW: For soft science writing about the digestive system, I thought no one could equal Mary Roach's GULP, but Giulia Enders has done just that with GUT. Though not as roll-on-the-floor funny as Roach, Enders' science is much more detailed and, surprisingly, easier to understand than Roach's. With plenty of her own childhood digestive issues prompting her, Enders went into medical school and specialized in microbiology. GUT constitutes cutting edge research into the brain/gut connection and, more generally, into an as yet woefully un-researched part of the human body. Fascinating for anyone who has a gut of his or her own! – Recommended by Kelly
