Packing for Mars
Packing for Mars
Mary Roach

The September/October 2011 pick is this years' One City One Book, Packing for Mars. Known for her candid and hilarious explorations of the odder side of science, Mary Roach now turns to her most compelling subject yet – space– a world devoid of the things we need to live and thrive: air, gravity, hot showers, fresh produce, privacy, beer.
