Death is something readers usually don't like to think about. That is understandable, but,as Margie Jenkins points out that kind of denial misses out on life's last adventure. Margie uses candor and common sense in an engaging tone to ease readers into the consideration of a difficult topic. They will learn how to prepare for death - well before they die. And then they will reap the benefits of a healthy view of death: the freedom to live boldly, with little anxiety or guilt, and absolutely no fear of the future. Death is something that demands respect, but that doesn't mean we have to miss out on its humorous moments.

As practical asit is profound, You Only Die Once teaches that good preparation for death is the foundation for a bold and rewarding life.
