The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers - Mary Roach - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of Stiff:

Tasteful things to do with a dead body.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Death. It doesn't have to be boring."

Questions to ponder while reading Stiff:

Can death be funny?

Have you ever considered donating your body to science?

My thoughts about Stiff:

Oddly humorous.

Totally informative.

Completely respectful.
