Just finished Stiff: the curious lives of human cadavers, by Mary Roach. Usually when I read a non-fiction book, I know a little about the subject. Not much always, but at least a little. I read a lot. I have to say I don't think I knew anything that was in this book. Totally cool subject and a great read, though perhaps not for the squeamish.
- Human crash test dummies
- Airplane crash investigation
- Bullets and bodies
- Brain death and location of the soul
- Head transplantation
- Human composting
- Remains of the author
So far, this is my favorite book of the year.
