Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers (Paperback)
Scientist have done some pretty crazy things with human cadavers in the name of scientific research. This book is equal parts educational, gross, and hilarious thanks to Roach’s incredible wit.— From Allison
Stiff is an oddly compelling, often hilarious exploration of the strange lives of our bodies postmortem. For two thousand years, cadavers--some willingly, some unwittingly--have been involved in science's boldest strides and weirdest undertakings. In this fascinating account, Mary Roach visits the good deeds of cadavers over the centuries and tells the engrossing story of our bodies when we are no longer with them.
