Format: Paperback
This title attempts to cover a bit too much in a very small amount of space. While the title discusses numerous different parts of your body you can sell, it covers the process of selling some of them better than others.

If you are looking to sell a kidney, this title will tell you little more than the fact that it is illegal in the United States, that a kidney is worth about $50,000 and that it can be done legally in other countries. A few examples of where one might start are provided. However, it leaves the reader to determine who would buy, how to market the goods and so on. If you are looking to sell your kidney, this title will probably not be helpful to this end.

However, Sell Yourself to Science goes into sufficient detail on how to sell bone marrow, blood plasma, hair, breast milk and other byproducts. Perhaps the most interesting section is the part about how to sell small slices of your liver or spleen for big bucks before you die. You'll still be left with enough to survive and the organ does regenerate itself. This topic is covered briefly. Brief information is included on being a surrogate mom as well.

Sell Yourself to Science goes into great detail on how to sell your sperm (for both impregnation and for research only purposes, those selling for research only will face almost no screening [you can even be HIV positive] where as those selling for impregnation will be very carefully screened and face many probing questions about past medical history and more) and even provides an extensive appendix listing places that will buy your baby batter.

A substantial portion of Sell Yourself to Science (approximately 60%) is dedicated to the art of selling yourself to Phase One medical research studies.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First of all, this was written in pre-internet 1992.

So don't expect to find a listing of web-pages that will buy something from you.

Not sure why I bought, curious in a morbid way I guess and this book satisfied my curiousity. However from the standpoint that you might want to actually use it to make money, forget it. A few searches on Google returns far more info.

This is a fun and weird book to read but not what I really call a "keeper" book. One read is all you care to go through with it. Buy it used!
