Very interesting book full of well written details, not for the faint at heart. A must read for anyone who has been curious about where their "donations" go as well as for anyone thinking about going into the business. Included is a rebuttal by the author to the many articles written. Smart, straight forwarded, and at times humorous. A definite read, and a great discussion book.

This is a very well written story told by the Man who lived it all. I honestly thought the subject would be a little gory but the manner in which the business is explained opened my eyes to a many times hidden topic. The author use of everyday language and terms helps the reader understand the process and its good and bad sides....I'm not sure what a "superfluidy..ample sufficiency" is but most of the book is much clearer...Overall a good beach read..Avoid it in bed though....

Head Shoulder Knees and Bone$ is a fascinating book, written by Federal Inmate Philip J. Guyett Jr. The book outlines his 13 year career in the body parts recovery business. He explains how body donors are acquired and the processes used to recover tissue. My belief was that these types of "Recoveries" were performed by a medical team in an operating room shortly after death, I WAS WRONG! This book told me how it's really done. I recommend this book, it is a must read for anyone looking either enter this career field or is thinking of donating.

Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Bone$: A personal account of a "body broker's" thirteen year journey through the legal and lucrative body parts business

I just read Heads Shoulders Knees & Bone$ by Philip J. Guyett Jr. Its about the body and tissue donation program. What really happens to some bodies when donated. You'll be surprised!
What started out to be a great business in doing the right thing for the right reasons ended up costing him everything he had and more. Its a true story of just one person and what can happen to anyone in that business.
Because of one co. not doing one thing that "they" were responsible for and because Mr. Guyett trusted them to do the right thing and they didn't, and left him to take the blame for everything, Mr. Guyett made a bad choice and it cost him eight years of his life in federal prison, his wife, and kids.
If anyone is interested in donating their body to science read this book first. It might make you rethink your decision.
Just picture dead and naked bodies hanging in cooler rooms and held up by hooks in both ears!
Great book and a real eye opener.
