Bringing Death to Life

by Andrew Anastasios

We’re all dying. Sooner or later we’re going to croak, kick the bucket, give up the ghost, cash in our chips, shuffle off, bow out or go to our happy hunting ground. It’s the one thing we all have in common. Yet no one seems to want to talk about it.

Unlike our ancestors, for whom dying was an important part of living, many of us will face death without any innate spiritual insight. When someone dies, no one seems to know what to say. Dying to Know aims to change all that.

Based on the bestselling Change the World for Ten Bucks, Dying to Know is a collection of conversation starters and idea buds partnered with practical information, quirky facts and specialist advice that lifts the lid on death: planning a personalised funeral; designing and decorating your own coffin; organ donation; coping with the pain of loss; creating online memorials; strange mortuary practices; avoiding teenage suicide; making setting up a Will fun; helping children cope with death; things to do before you die; and a host of other topics.

Each is presented in a double-page spread and aims to empower, inspire and, at times, amuse the reader.

Words of Inspiration

"I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it."
Mark Twain
“They say that a part of you dies when a special Loved One passes away...I disagree...I say a part of you lives with your Loved One on the other side.”
Daniel Yanez
