Reviews

Hilarious! With Fuzz, Mary Roach again takes us into an unfamiliar scientific realm, in this case the science of managing the conflicts between humans and the natural world--lethal leopards, rampaging elephants, jet-downing birds, even killer trees. It's an ever-widening conflict zone, but one that Ms. Roach gleefully mines for a multitude of bizarre facts that'll make you snort coffee through your nose.--Erik Larson, bestselling author of The Splendid and the Vile
Bestseller Roach sheds light on nature's malefactors in this often funny, always provocative survey...Roach's writing is wry, full of heart, and loaded with intriguing facts...This eminently entertaining outing is another winner from Roach.-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
