Covering the exploitative nature of shrunken heads to the sci-fi trope of "brains in a jar", Larson gives the reader a prompt run through of the fascination with, well, severed heads. If you're looking for a solid answer on why humanity seems to be drawn to severed heads, well, this might not be the read for you. Larson is fantastic at getting the reader to think critically; as she runs through the different ways that people have encountered skulls, she shares her personal opinions (without forcing the reader to agree with her and without quite blatantly forcing it down the reader's throat.
