If you have ever wanted to know in concise, short and sweet detail what happens to a human body right before, during and after the death process, this is the book you have been looking for. This is written in a style that ordinary readers can understand and consider. There isn't a massive amount of detail. What is written gets right to the point and leaves plenty of space for your imagination to take you as far as you wish to go. The book also provides enough fuel for thought to get the interested reader pointed in the right direction. There are parts that are graphic, yet not grotesque. Personally, i found that I simply could not put the book down. I was rivitted. Read it at night and alone if you dare. Good book with a short, useful glossary as well.
