This is a fabulous little book that contains everything you need to know about you dying or someone you love. It’s packed full of practical information and tips; and is all written with the touch of humour that is required when talking of death. Although it seems short, there is no missing information and it is set out to be read all at once or you can dip in and out.
Amanda has writing style that makes you feel like you’re actually reading a letter from a dear friend who knows you well. I highl

This book is a must read for anyone diagnosed with a life limiting illness, and for friends, family and anyone else close to them. For a small book it packs a lot of punch, serving up information in a gentle, caring way, and offering many ideas and tips on coping with terminal illness, and how to work out what is important to YOU at a time when life is just overwhelming. EVERYONE should read this book!

An incredibly helpful, easy to read, easy to understand, practical book, tackling all the hard issues we need to deal with during the most stressful times of our lives, in dealing with death. Reading it is like having a cuppa with a good friend, who will gently help you cope, with great knowledge, and very practical and easy to follow steps. Every household should have Not Dead Yet, and everyone should read it.

I am very grateful to Amanda for taking the time to write this book. It makes so much sense but like many things in life it’s not until someone points something out do you realise what you need to do.
This book is a great resource.
