What do you want to do with your death? Who knew we would still have such a wide variety of career choices? In Stiff, Mary Roach educates us on all the possibilities.
Interested in having plastic surgery? It costs the cadaver nothing!
Ever wanted to be a car crash test dummy? It’s not too late!
Join law enforcement and commune with nature working on the infamous body farm.
Speaking of nature, how about giving back to the environment as compost? You can do it! No previous experience required!
All these and many more options await you in Stiff.
Written in a conversational tone for the layperson, Roach asks all the questions you would want to ask but would feel stupid doing so. She asks no matter how silly and, yes, in the end this makes for a very entertaining read.
