Yes, you read that right. This book is about dead bodies, and it is surprisingly funny. Just don't try to read it while you're eating! Everything you read in this book, no matter how weird, is true. For example, did you know cadavers are used to practice plastic surgery techniques? To help interpret the data from crash test dummies? And to assist detectives in interpreting clues from decaying bodies? You never know what will happen when you donate your body to science! This nonfiction look at life after death puts the "gross" in "engrossing."
