MBB: PRE-ORDER NOW Mary Roach's new book: Fuzz: When Nature Breaks the Law

Mary Roach
author of Stiff, Packing for Mars, Gulp, Grunt, Spook, Bonk
(she's always a good read: funny and full of science)

Her newest book comes out September 14

What's to be done about a jaywalking moose? A grizzly bear caught breaking and entering? A murderous tree? As New York Times best-selling author Mary Roach discovers, the answers are best found not in jurisprudence but in science: the curious science of human-wildlife conflict, a discipline at the crossroads of human behavior and wildlife biology.

Roach tags along with animal attack forensics investigators, human-elephant conflict specialists, bear managers, and "danger tree" faller-blasters. She travels from leopard-terrorized hamlets in the Indian Himalaya to St. Peter's Square in the early hours before the Pope arrives for Easter Mass, when vandal gulls swoop in to destroy the elaborate floral display. Along the way, Roach reveals as much about humanity as about nature's lawbreakers. Combining little-known forensic science and conservation genetics with a motley cast of laser scarecrows, langur impersonators, and mugging macaques, Fuzz offers hope for compassionate coexistence in our ever-expanding human habitat.

Time to pre-order now.

The first ten to order will get a special patch.
It's all a mystery now, but stay tuned for more details
