Stiff

July 24, 2009

stiffToday’s book recommendation is not for a book that I’d like to sell.  Well, I’d like to sell it if I had multiple copies of course, but this is a book I just bought myself.  If you have not yet discovered Mary Roach, do yourself a favor and buy this book!  This title is both a wonderfully funny and still respectful exploration of the science of cadaver research.  Sounds interesting, right?  It is, trust me, it is.  The often quoted opening line tells it all: “The way I see it, being dead is not terribly far off from being on a cruise ship.  Most of your time is spent lying on your back.”
