Inhaltsangabe: Book by Teresi Dick

Críticas:

"The moment of death, suggests science writer Dick Teresi, is harder to pin down than ever...Charting historical definitions of death, the thinking of research greats and debates over near-death experiences, Teresi notes that the ethical challenges are immense, asking, for instance, whether all organ donors are unrevivable."
--"Nature
"
..".Chilling, controversial, and, at times, comical commentary on physical death...All sorts of experts--on coma, animal euthanasia, and execution--as well as undertakers, organ transplant staff, neurologists, ethicists, and lawyers weigh-in on the death debate."
--Tony Miksanek, "Booklist
"
"Like a real-life version of Robin Cook's medical thriller Coma, Teresi paints a grisly picture of organ harvesting and raises uncomfortable questions: Is the donor actually dead rather than at the point of death? Might he or she be revived given time and proper medical attention? ...Provocative... [An] examination of important ethical issues and the still-unresolved question of what constitutes death."
--"The Kirkus Review"
"Reading Dick Teresi's book is like discovering that your college class has been hijacked by the spitball-lobbing kid in the back row--and that the kid is twice as smart as the prof ever was. Taking on biologists, philosophers, and the medical establishment, Teresi zestfully skewers our confused thinking about life, death, and the states in between. "The Undead" is a rarity: a superserious examination of a profound subject that is a pleasure to read."
--Charles C. Mann, author of "1493 "and "1491"
"As I was pulled into this startling, informative account of death-defying and death-defining, I couldn't help putting a checkmark in the margin next to every line that made me gasp--or laugh--or marvel at Dick Teresi's bold, inimitable reporting style. On some pages I made as many as four checkmarks. The book left me reeling at the welter of uncertainty that surrounds the certainty oft


"This disturbing, often hilarious book raises many critical questions about deadness."
--"The New York Times Book Review"
"An indefatigable researcher and fluid writer, Mr. Teresi provides a good long riff on death past and present."
