Read Fascinating Book About Cadavers

Stiff: the curious lives of human cadavers by Mary Roach — Probably should have skipped this one on my lunch break, but I thought it was fascinating nonetheless. I'm a sucker for medical history, and the author covers the uses and abuses of human cadavers from medical treatments to scientific inquiry to disposal methods. Oddly enough, I wasn't really put off by any of the information, and I learned about some very cool methods of body disposal that were introduced locally (yes, southeast Michigan is featured several times in this enthralling tome).
