Description


Full of anecdotes on the weirdest funerals and final resting places the world over, this guidebook is a tongue-in-cheek romp to an aspect of life that frightens most people. Discussing the burial practices of the past--from the embalming practices of ancient Egyptians to the funeral pyres used in India--while looking closely at how death and funeral services are practiced today, this humorously macabre guide answers questions such as What kind of party should be held at a funeral ceremony? Who should be invited to speak? Should flowers be sent? and What music should be played? A lively discussion on the history of being buried alive and 10 ideas on how to stop it from happening to you is also included.
