Great Book I am Reading
Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers [Kindle]
by Mary Roach
Mary Roach has done it again. Taken an offbeat topic--what happens to the human body after it dies?--and at once educates and entertains. From the ancient Egyptians, to medical research, to cosmetic surgery to crash tests, she shows us all the ways we use corpses. Roach interviews and gets the facts and stories, but also inserts herself in the story and her thoughts, which are witty and hysterical. She is a gifted writer with tons of curiosity. The human corpse has contributed much to our understanding of the body and world, making our lives better and safer. Read this to learn, to grow in appreciation and for a good laugh! Four/five stars.
