    If you can t cope with the idea of death without a hearty dose of euphemism this probably isn t going to be the book for you.When I became an archivist at the City of Melbourne a very dear friend of mine became a technician at the city Morgue I figured at the time he had watched a couple of episodes too

    Fascinating, touching and surprisingly wholesome considering it s about dead bodies Many people will find this book disrespectful There is nothing amusing about being dead, they will say Ah, but there is. Mary Roach brings cadavers into a whole new, sometimes painfully bright, light We follow her as sh

    Mary Roach writes about what happens when you donate your body to science Hilarity ensues Well, maybe not hilarity but it is a good dose of edutainment.Way back around the time the earth s crust cooled and life spread across the planet, late 1994 or early 1995, I should think, I visited a chiropractic college with

    Mary Roach details a lot of uses for human cadavers in this book, but she missed a major one As Weekend At Bernies taught us, you can always use the corpse of your boss to scam your way into a free weekend at a beach house That scientific research is all well and good, but there s nothing in here at all about the best ways to simul

    Find all of my reviews at Cadavers are our superheroes They brave fire without flinching, withstand falls from tall buildings and head on car crashes into walls You can fire a gun at them or run a speedboat over their legs, and it will not faze them Their heads can be removed with no deleterious effect They can be in six places at once
