Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

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.

By John Gregg on October 25, 2011
Format: Paperback
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....
