An extremely informative book, which is also touching. Ms. Doughty, who has a popular YouTube site "Ask a Mortician," provides an autobiographical account of her beginnings in the mortuary business. She provides a behind-the-scenes look at a controversial industry. You may disagree with her opinions, but she provides you with information that you can use to form your own. She's witty, funny, and thoughtful. Enjoy!
