What you could do after death.

Author: Mary Roach

The topic may seem a bit morbid but Mary Roach's book reads more like a story than a non-fiction book.  She explores the various ways that cadavers are used in the medical community.  Each chapter is describes a "job" that a cadaver may have from a practice face for a plastic surgeon to solving murders (think CSI).   Ms. Roach weaves humor into each chapter and the science background is very interesting.   Not a quick read but very educational and entertaining.
