Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife

Mary Roach likes to write about things she initially knows nothing about; she must really dig doing research (and meeting some off-kilter folks).  Her last book, Stiff, discusses what happens to the human body after death.  This book tries to look at what happens to the soul.

Its not as good a read as her last book – I thought this one lacked some of the “a-ha” moments that made the last book entertaining.  And, I thought her skepticism reduced some of the book’s potential.

While I recommend Stiff, I think I’d pass on Spook.
