The typical textbook read. Not great. Not engaging. Useful, to an extent. For those interested in the topic, it has some good information in it. There are probably much better ways, and books, to get it from though.
This was an extremely good book in preparing myself for handling the departure of family and friends in the future. It made me think of my own departure someday. I will go back to this book when needed and will recommend it for family and friends when they lose someone.
A well written textbook of important information that everyone will eventually face at some point in their lives. A thoughtful book of guidance; understanding and preparedness of the inevitable. I will keep this book for future reference.
