I picked this book up for book club and was a little unsure of whether or not I would like it just because I'm not a big fan of nonfiction books. After the first chapter though, I was hooked. The author discusses the subject in a respectful yet witty matter, often throwing in her own hilarious observations or little jokes. If you are easily grossed out by descriptive details, this might not be the book for you. I, however, loved it. It was fascinating to learn about all the research that is done with cadavers. I usually think of medical research, but there is so much more!
