A few Good Books

  • •The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
  • Stiff: The Curious Life of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach (warning, while I really enjoyed this book, it discusses what happens to bodies after death, including organ donation/ harvests, causes of death and scientific research done on cadavers in detail. You have been warned)
  • A Brief History of Medicine by Paul Strathern
  • •Anything by the Mutter Museam (medical curiosities)
  • Girl with a Dragon Tatoo by Stieg Larsson (the movie is quite good too, some excellent cinematography and great visual shots. it is rated R however, and very rightly so.)
  • most books by Caroline B Cooney are good for easy and entertaining reads. They ask interesting questions, and while fluffly, are still entertaining.
  • Death and the Virgin Queeen by Chris Skidmore
  • Physics of the Impossible by Michio Kaku
  • Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare 
  • Catalyst by Laurie Halse Anderson (I will admit that I love most all her books though)
  • more to follow later :)
