Stiff, by Mary Roach

Staff Pick

Mary Roach is an expert in demystifying taboos and, in Stiff, the first of her seven popular science books, she pulls back the operating room curtain on what happens to our bodies after we die. With chapters covering everything from extremely realistic crash-test dummies to beating-heart cadavers (exactly what it sounds like), this book is a journey through our ingrained discomfort with death and a survey of the practical, emotional, and medical considerations that surround the disposal and preservation of human remains.
