This often tongue-in-cheek but also serious look at resuscitation science through the ages will take you from the days of taverns paying bounties for successfully revived patrons to cryogenic laboratories in Scottsdale, AZ. It may also leave you thinking about your own end-of-life plan and the implications of death becoming "just another serious complication." Some knowledge of biology is recommended but not required.
