Sarah Everts, Journalism and CommunciationA new book by Carleton journalism professor Sarah Everts – The Joy of Sweat – is officially released today but has already attracted high praise from the likes of the New York Times, Time magazine and Oprah Daily.

The Joy of Sweat is an in-depth look at the science, culture and history of perspiration. Everts debunks many misconceptions about this vital biological function, and takes readers on a whirlwind tour around the world, visiting Moscow for a sweat dating event, going to Amsterdam for a sauna theater competition, and trekking to New Jersey suburbs to visit a professional sniffer who assesses armpit odour on behalf of deodorant companies.
