Description

  • Great product!
  • "One of the funniest and most unusual books of the year....Gross, educational, and unexpectedly
    sidesplitting."―Entertainment Weekly

    Stiff is an oddly compelling, often hilarious exploration of the strange lives of our bodies postmortem. For two
    thousand years, cadavers―some willingly, some unwittingly―have been involved in science's boldest strides and weirdest
    undertakings. In this fascinating account, Mary Roach visits the good deeds of cadavers over the centuries and tells the
    engrossing story of our bodies when we are no longer with them.
