Dude, the footnotes are at the end of the e-book......it's easy to find, read, and laugh

This is Mary Roach at her most curious and funniest. BUT, the e-book lacks the extensive footnotes found on nearly every page of the printed book. Mary's footnotes are full of relevant information and hilarious observations. Example page 195: "... Meston called the questionnaire the Washington Examination of Expected Negative Identity Post-Peyronie's: the WEENIE PP."
Without the footnotes you're missing some valuable background information and only getting half of her sense of humor.
Funny and informative
Mary Roach is a fantastic author. I have read Stiff and Bonk and enjoyed both very much. She has an entertaining way of writing that keeps her witty comments intact but also allows you to learn about the subject she is focusing on. I am a freak for medical books and this one was very interesting to me.
