"Dufris seems so comfortable reading about freezing people's bodies and heads for later reanimation that it takes scant imagination to hear him as the principal author." ---AudioFile --This text refers to the MP3 CD edition.

Very interesting book. However, the part where it is claimed the death of the patient in North Hollywood was "hastened" by an Alcor staff member is simply untrue. I was the RN caring for the patient that night and he died of natural causes. His body was turned over to Alcor per the prior arrangements (the patient and his partner with Alcor) after I declared he had expired. At no time have I ever been a member of Alcor nor been in their employ. And at no time did anyone other then myself administer any medications to the patient that night that I am aware of and I do not believe it possible that this could have been done. When I observed and documented that he had no pulse, no respirations, and no heartbeat I concluded he had expired. The authors of the book never contacted me. I was interviewed by detectives from the LAPD several years ago when these charges were first made and I told them what I am writing in this review. UPDATE: This "book" did very poor in sales and is available for 1 penny in some outlets which is a penny more then it is worth. So much inaccurate and false information has been put forward about the "author" in terms of his experience and background. Contributing "author" to a paramedic book portrayed as "the" authoritative book for paramedics. Actually, writing a few paragraphs which I guess is considered a contributing "author" of a textbook. And we are still waiting for how to access the police reports on all of those incidents where people in the dark banged on his door, chased him through streets, and threatened and terrorized him. Did he contact any police agency? Going into "hiding" as a paramedic in Las Vegas is quite a "hiding". And still asking for sources for the other "gigs" on his resume that defy validation by googling.Read more ›

There seems to be a need to qualify oneself in order for their reviews to be taken seriously regarding this book. So, for the record, I am neither an Alcorian or a cryonics basher. If that's good enough, here's my say:

I find it hard to believe Mr. Johnson. Why? Because the man doesn't have a single good thing to say about anyone or anything associated with Alcor at any point in his association with the organization (save for one engineer.) Normally in a whistle blower memoir we're introduced to someone who goes through stages. First they are a stalwart member of their organization (maybe a little naive but a believer nonetheless.) Then a hint of trouble arises. Then the trouble gets larger. Finally, near the apex of the story, we discover that all is definitely not well and the whistle blower wrestles with the moral obligation to bring down their associates.

From the beginning of this book, even before Mr. Johnson accepts Alcor's offer of employment, he makes the organization out to be a gaggle of physical freaks and comical caricatures. The office is filthy. The employees all look sickly and behave neurotically. There's dangerous, possibly illegal stuff in the supply cabinet that shouldn't be there. Red flags abound. Yet Mr Johnson signs on anyway. Why? So he can get away from his burn-out gig as a Vegas paramedic and live closer to his dad. Really?

Mr. Johnson is clearly a man with a long resume who would be sought after for his medical experience in a wide variety of fields. Why does he go to work for Alcor even after an interview he seems to equate with a visit to a mental ward? Why go to work for this gaggle of freaks who appear to have skeletons in their closet and red flags around every corner just so he can move to be near his dad?

After hearing about Ted Williams I simply had to read this book and while I initially believed what the Author was saying, I have since come to have serious doubts whether or not a lot of it is true. Alcor made a statement on their website regarding this book and its allegations and in all honesty they raise some legitimate issues. In particular is the fact that the author has tried to profit from all of this on numerous occasions. If the information really is true then it is a shame that Mr Johnson has taken the route he has releasing it to the public. For example putting the Ted Williams pictures on a website and trying to charge people [...] a pop so they can see them is..., well lets just say that this in itself does so much damage to Mr Johnson's credability that you really have no choice but to paint all of his statments and accusations with this same brush. It makes Mr Johnson appear to be an opportunist and in all honesty if he is willing to do the website thing then why shouldn't we believe that he is capable of lying to increase the shock value of his book thus making it sell more copies?

Do I believe that some of it is true? absolutely. Why else would Alcor get a court order against Mr. Johnson prohibiting him from releasing any additional information. Obviously he has information that can hurt Alcor and he has proof to back at least some of it up. This, combined with his poor choices, is one of the reasons why I am beginning to have my doubts about some of his accusations. The fact that Mr Johnson has real info that hurts alcor gives him the ability to make things up and it gives people a reason for believing such statements after all if he is telling the truth on statement A, why shouldn't we believe him on statement B?
