A SMALL NOTE REGARDING OBSESSION

Mary Roach 1

“I am obsessed with my research when I’m working on something new, not by nature but serially: book by book and regardless of topic. All good research–whether for science or for a book–is a form of obsession. And obsession can be awkward… I like to think that I never completely disappear down the pike; I like to think that I still have a lot of miles to go before I am COMPLETELY consumed by a topic.”

– MARY ROACH, author of the books “Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex”, “Stiff: The Curious Life of Cadavers, and “Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife”.
