An interesting report on the "death-care" business as told from a former journalist who decided to take a sabbatical and try being an undertaker in Canada. Gave a lot of insight into how funerals work, how the business is run, and all the options one has when he or she dies. It was a good book--an easy, quick read--but it would have been better if it contained more humor. The writer was witty and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny but the book could have benefited from more of that.
