This is a review of the book Review: Freezing People is (Not) Easy by Bob Nelson. The book recounts his experiences as president of the Cryonics Society of California during which he cryopreserved and then attempted (and failed) to maintain the cryopreservation of a number of early cryonics patients.
Better known as "the Chatsworth disaster".
Amazing and sad story. Maybe a tale of how to not set things up if you are in need of long term success.
This book is the best argument I know for the professionalism of Alcor over the affordability of CI.
