Summary
Could zombies actually walk the earth? Join science punk Frank Swain as he digs into the science of body and mind control, from Haitian Vodou potions to military interrogation techniques. He recounts true zombie tales from the archives, including resurrected dog heads, secret agent drugs, and remote-controlled bulls and rats. He even investigates how psychologists are shaping our thoughts in the design of city streets. Entertaining and mind-bending, this is incredible science at its best
