Not for lunchtime reading

A friend lent me her copy of Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers. I first heard of it on Six Feet Under and was intrigued. Basically the author goes into details about what really happens (and has happened) to cadavers. There’s a chapter on the Body Farm, one about anatomy classes, and so on. Although it gets a little too detailed in places for my own taste, and therefore is probably best not read at mealtime, I have to say Mary Roach has a great sense of humor. Interesting, informative, and engaging book.
