Summary
In this book the author , Robert larkins, "lifts the lid on what goes on inside the mortuary and behind the cemetary walls. By offering practical advice and using stories of those who have successfully bucked the system, Larken reveals what our real options are and how we can: keep funeral costs down ; avoid the traps set by unscrupulous operators ; seek genuine eco-friendly funeral alternatives ; ensure that our funeral wishes are carried out ; take matters into our own hands. Eye-opening, empowering and often darkly amusing, his book demystifies death, dispels popular myths about funerals, and shows us better ways of conducting our final acts of love." - back cover
