I've read information on the Body Farm before, but nothing from the man who created and runs the facility. It was interesting to hear the ideas that helped him get things started, and incredibly interesting to read about some of the cases he's worked on and helped to solve. He manages to keep things light hearted, even though the subject matter is anything but. I didn't realize how much work he'd done prior to starting the facility, and all of that was very cool as well. All in all, an engrossing read (no pun intended!) and one I'll definitely recommend to my friends with stronger stomachs :)
