I really enjoyed this book and learned quite a bit from it. Can't wait to listen to it again. If you're interested in Forensic Pathology/Anthropology you need to get this one. Great narration. Big thumbs up!
I've always had an interest in "The Body Farm" and have often wondered where & how it got its start. This is a wonderfully told story and it is very enlightening as well as educational and humorous in all the right places. It was nice to learn about Dr. Blass as well. I highly recommend it.
I live in Knoxville and can actually see the Body Farm from where I work. The book started a bit slow, but became truly fascinating and educational. A must read for anyone who is intrigued by forensics. This is also a great history of the field.
Enforcement officer and Freelance Photographer. I always say yes to adventures, lovely music and good books.
This is a book that aproaches death in a humble way. When Dr Bass talks about his own family and his experiences whith death I get really touched.
The book is very interesting both in a forensic and a medical way. Whithin my job as a crisis consultant I sometimes have to talk to people that have stubled upon dead humans. This book has deepend my understanding for their findings.
If you are the least interested in this subject - get the book!
Dr. Bass and his co-author weave personal life and professional cases into a funny, entertaining, yet serious book, based on the innovative research carried out at the Body Farm. However, I wish this series was unabridged. I hate unabridged books!!
A story by a wonderful man. Unfortunately, while the idea is good, the execution leaves much to be desired.
