You are planning NOT to die, don't read this book. But, if you are wondering what your choices are?  If you are wondering what the laws are surrounding this subject?  Check this book out.  It's looking like there is a revolution in the death industry and we,  baby boomers are right in the middle of it.  Everyone I seem to ask mentions that they would like to be cremated.  Others can't talk about the (ugly not going to happen) subject.  Others, such as myself, thought one thing, but after reading this book, are wondering what choice to make.

Of course we know that we will all die, that's a given.  Every last one of us.  We can be prepared or we can create chaos.  It's totally up to us.  Read this book and get educated.  At least educated to the extent of what's happening today in the body disposal business, otherwise known as the Fancy Send Off.  Hint:  People seem to be running the other way from 'traditional' funerals.

BTW This is a fascinating, funny, well written, unsentimental look at our own mortality.  This girl is smaaaaaaht, and writes the way I think she speaks...Fun, informative read.  People no matter what your decision let it be an informed one.  And yes, it's happening.  Really.
