    Nowhere is there another lab like Dr. Bill Bass's: on a hillside in Tennessee, human bodies decompose in the open air, aided by insects, bacteria and birds, unhindered by coffins or mausoleums. At the "Body Farm," nature takes its course, with corpses buried in shallow graves, submerged in water, concealed beneath slabs of concrete, locked in trunks of cars. As stand-ins for murder victims, they serve the needs of science, and the cause of justice.

    Overall

    Expecting discussions about this facinating facility where bodies are left to decompose for the purpose of study - I was left wanting. What I heard was more or less the life of Dr. Bill Bass, his life and research. Don't get me wrong. I found his story to be intriguing and inspiring. He has taken forensic research to a different level, tackling a subject matter that would leave you with horrible visions. What I was hoping for was a book detailing the studies conducted at anthropological institute. Details of how the research is done, studies and results.

    It is not a bad book by any means. Hearing about the challenges he faced both in his work and life validates his humanity. I would recommend this book for those wanting to learn about who this man is and his visions rather than those looking to hear fine details about the facility.
