Description
"A physician explores just how far the science of resurrection has come. Not too long ago, when you were dead, you were dead. There was no coming back. But a little electricity, applied to the heart in just the right way, has changed all that. Now death has become just another serious complication. Dr. David Casarett, a highly respected researcher and professor of medicine, now chronicles his journey to the cutting edge of resuscitation. His travels take him inside a sophisticated cryonics facility in the Arizona desert, into a darkroom full of hibernating lemurs in North Carolina, and to a laboratory that is experimenting with suspended animation. Fascinating, thought provoking, humorous, and a little unsettling, Shocked takes on questions of life and death with a light touch and a broad perspective. It's perfect for fans of popular science books like Mary Roach's Stiff"--Provided by publisher.
