In spite of the macabre topic, Mary Roach must have had a ball doing her footwork for this book. Not happy to glean her information from published sources, Mary traveled extensively to conduct her research, and had doors opened for her that I doubt get opened very often.  This book has so many interesting tidbits on what happens to our bodies after we die. I was amazed and fascinated by the history and current research being done on human cadavers.   Although this book is not for the faint of heart, as we are obviously talking about cadavers here, you will yet find the interesting history behind the medical research being done every day to SAVE YOUR LIFE!  This was a book that I had to take in stride, due to all the information in each chapter that sent me pondering into the next day!  If your up for it, check this book out and let me know what you think!!
