Factual book discussing the biological meaning of death, attitudes of the dying, survivors, and society toward death, with chapters on euthanasia, abortion, capital punishment, murder, suicide, and immortality.

The book is a little dry, but it is factual, presenting a composite of ideas neatly grouped together. For this reason it would probably be very useful for teens, especially those who would just want a few pages on the subject. It's a different kind of a book!
