Death for Beginners





Publication Information



Death for Beginners is a heart-wrenching, brutally honest, and ultimately cathartic book about losing his wife to cancer. There are lessons for all of us in his pain, the way he coped, and the desperate love he showed for his wife and their children in the face of an incurable disease. The book makes you stop and think-- and even occasionally laugh - about the things we take for granted in our lives, and in the lives and departures of our loved ones. From A to Z, it's a soul-searching chronicle of a death foretold that offers hope, and sustenance, with a remarkable absence of empty platitudes, for all of us.
