  • Death's Acre: Inside the Legendary Forensic Lab The Body Farm Where the Dead Do Tell Tales

    Story

    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.

    I loved the book "Dead men do tell tales" but this wasn't really the same. I expected more stories and I didn't really like a lot of the background - how he and his professor met, how he met his 2nd wife, how they dated, her medical problems. I didn't want to hear how he started the body farm...blah blah...Call me selfish, I wanted to hear lots and lots of stoires and it wasn't a whole lot.

    When he hit the airwaves 30 years ago, John Stossel helped create a whole new category of news, dedicated to protecting and informing consumers. As a crusading reporter, he chased snake-oil peddlers, rip-off artists, and corporate thieves, winning the applause of his peers.

    But along the way, he noticed that there was something far more troublesome going on: While the networks screamed about the dangers of exploding BIC lighters and coffeepots, worse risks were ignored.

    Bill says: "Could be the original No Spin Zone"
    "Best Thing I've downloaded so far"
    Overall

    Excellent, easy to listen to , very interesting!

    David Sedaris' collection of essays - including live recordings! - tells a most unconventional life story. With every clever turn of a phrase, Sedaris brings a view and a voice like no other to every unforgettable encounter. You can also listen to Sedaris in an interview with Terry Gross on Fresh Air.

    I read review after review and maybe I am not much of a satyrist but this was so boring! He is not funny at all...I would first urge and beg you to listen to Audible's free sample because this was a real waste. Sorry.

    Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool? What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common? Why do drug dealers still live with their moms? How much do parents really matter? What kind of impact did Roe v. Wade have on violent crime?

    Timothy says: "Fascinating book, despite the title."
    "Really enjoyed it"
    Overall

    I am not much of a economics lover and thought the book would be over my head but I really was surprised at what an easy listen it was..how often I found myself quoting his findings and how I could really understand it. The stories are great, the facts are unbeliveable - expecially about the KKK - I use that story at parties!
