Okay, so it's been a couple of weeks since I finished reading Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach and a lot of what I read is still with me. It was such an informative and interesting read about the use of cadavers for research. I would definitely recommend it if you have an open mind and aren't too squeamish (I would probably skip chapters 9 & 10 if you are). Mary (yeah, we're on a first name basis) also does an awesome job of writing about cadavers without coming off as insensitive or off-putting. A must-read!
