A New York Times / National Bestseller "America's funniest science writer" (Washington Post) Mary Roach explores the science of keeping human beings intact, awake, sane, uninfected, and uninfested in the bizarre and extreme circumstances of war. Grunt tackles the science behind some of a soldier's most challenging adversaries—panic, exhaustion, heat, noise—and introduces us to the scientists who seek to conquer them. Mary Roach dodges hostile fire with the U.S. Marine Corps Paintball Team as part of a study on hearing loss and survivability in combat. She visits the fashion design studio of U.S. Army Natick Labs and learns why a zipper is a problem for a sniper. She visits a repurposed movie studio where amputee actors help prepare Marine Corps medics for the shock and gore of combat wounds. At Camp Lemmonier, Djibouti, in east Africa, we learn how diarrhea can be a threat to national security. Roach samples caffeinated meat, sniffs an archival sample of a World War II stink bomb, and stays up all night with the crew tending the missiles on the nuclear submarine USS Tennessee. She answers questions not found in any other book on the military: Why is DARPA interested in ducks? How is a wedding gown like a bomb suit? Why are shrimp more dangerous to sailors than sharks? Take a tour of duty with Roach, and you’ll never see our nation’s defenders in the same way again.

Grunt by Mary Roach | Summary & Analysis Preview: Mary Roach’s Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans At War examines technological and medical research in the military. Each chapter focuses on a different topic—for example, diarrhea among soldiers—and then presents historical background, interviews with scientists and affected military personnel, and possible solutions to the problem. Military research in both news accounts and films is usually presented as a matter of technology and combat equipment, such as faster airplanes, better bombs, and deadlier weapons. Much military research, however, is devoted to finding ways to protect soldiers or to help them cope in the aftermath of injury. For instance, researchers work constantly to develop clothing fabrics that will keep soldiers cool while still providing camouflage—a difficult task because the black in camouflage absorbs heat. Doctors and surgeons constantly develop new ways to address injuries from bombs and gunshots. They have made advances in reconstructive genital surgery and even some strides towards successful penis transplants… PLEASE NOTE: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.
