REVIEW: Nothing is certain in life but death and taxes however people are normally more willing to talk about the taxes side of things rather than death. Having recently gone through a bereavement in the family I've been coping the best way I can by working my way through it. So when this title arrived to review I was more than interested.
Taking the reader on a death tour of the world, we get to see how many cultures deal with death, traditions associated with it and presents you with a number of exercises to work through so that you see death as a part of your own cycle and helps you plan for not only dealing with the loss of those who have left you but also to give you idea's and thoughts on how to deal with what will happen after you own time.
Its well written, advice and information comes from those knowledgable of each religion and also all round tells you things in a matter of fact way. Back this up with an easy to follow journey of the world and all round its a more than fascinating read.
