"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Emphasizing the importance of planning ahead, this manual addresses the practical matters that death raises. It is divided into three parts: before, during, and after a death. Part I describes wills, living wills, and planning for disposition and commemoration. Part II deals with imminent death, covering the definition of death, uses of life support systems, hospice programs, and death care. Part III is for survivors, detailing how to make arrangements for disposition and funerals, how to administer an estate, and how to find help in grief and bereavement. The book on its own is an excellent guide for preparing for the inevitable. The detailed resource listings that follow each chapter make it a truly outstanding reference: annotated bibliographies, organizations, and agencies offering assistance are included. An appendix lists additional resources for finding help facing death. Highly recommended.
