One book forever changed the life of T.V. repairman Bob Nelson. Sparked by a 1962 tome by "the father of cyronics," he became a vocal proponent in the movement for the low-temperature preservation of terminally ill humans in hopes of later recovery. Not content to be simply an advocate, he transformed himself into a determined would-be resurrectionist, arranging and sometimes personally funding cyronic suspensions. Risking ridicule, litigation, and financial ruin, he continued his "freezing for life" mission. Nelson's story, rendered here as a memoir, will become an Errol Morris dark comedy film starring Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig, and Christopher Walken.
