Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers
Mary Roach, 2003
W.W. Norton & Company
Outrageously funny, irreverent . . . (Denver Post)
For 2,000 years, cadavers—some willingly, some unwittingly—have been involved in science's boldest strides and weirdest undertakings.
In this fascinating, ennobling account, Mary Roach visits the good deeds of cadavers over the centuries and, in so doing, tells the engrossing story of our bodies when we are no longer with them. (From the publisher.)
