I thought the explanation of the title was meaningful. So...read up on Cotard syndrome (walking corpse syndrome).

Not quite a book on zombies, and yet....still kinda horrific. Especially the parasite chapter.

the parasite chapter is the most disturbing. This is a pretty short book that tries to cover a large topic, so the reader gets just tidbits on the various medical curiosities. It is a good fast read, but will not give you everything you want to know. I guess that is where the bibliography can come in handy!!
