The information in this book is definitely interesting and thought provoking. And the way it was written was done well. Though some of the information might need to be looked into more the rest seemed okay. Read full review
Review: 10 Ways to Recycle a Corpse: and 100 More Dreadfully Distasteful ListsUser Review - Kyla - Goodreads
