What happens to your body after you have died? Fertilizer? Crash Test Dummy? Human Dumpling? Ballistics Practise? Life after death is not as simple as it looks. Mary Roach's Stiff lifts the lid off what happens to our bodies once we have died. Bold, original and with a delightful eye for detail, Roach tells us everything we wanted to know about this new frontier in medical science. Interweaving present-day explorations with a history of past attempts to study what it means to be human Stiff is a deliciously dark investigations for readers of popular science as well as fans of the macabre

I didn't find this book as amusing as some others did. Reading it felt a bit like being back in college.

OMG! I'm so happy to have received this book! I wanted to read this book for ages, because I'm really interested in death etc. I loved the toetag-bookmark. The body (doll) was happily received by my daughter, and although she is only two years old, she immediately started to dissect the arm from the body. Should I be worried now?
I want to thank you (Team Train) very much! I loved it!

I've just finished it. It was quite interesting, but not as funny as Bonk.
This book will be going to someone who wished for it on the wishlist-tag-game.

Received in the mail today having just returned from a lovely week vacation along the North Shore of Minnesota. What a nice surprise. Thank you dutch-book. Your profile pic is always enjoyable to see for me...I loved Tracy Chevalier's Girl with a Pearl Earring.
