Stiff: the curious lives of human cadavers by Mary Roach

This was a great book, as entertaining as it was educational.
If you want to know what it means to donate your body to science or
are interested in medical and scientific history, you'll enjoy this book.
It is well-written and the author approaches her research with a
respect and a sense of humor that I imagine would keep even the
squeamish reading on.


p.s. Don't skip any of her footnotes.

  • I don't think of myself as horribly squeamish, but I've been listening to this audiobook in the car and I've had to turn it off a few times already. I did fine with crash test cadavers and mortuary science, but the body farm put me off my feed!
