From her first day at Westwind Cremation & Burial, 23-year-old Caitlin Doughty threw herself into her curious new profession. Coming face-to-face with the very thing we go to great lengths to avoid thinking about, she started to wonder about the lives of those she cremated and the mourning families they left behind, and found herself confounded by people's erratic reactions to death. Exploring our death rituals - and those of other cultures - she pleads the case for healthier attitudes around death and dying.

Recently started watching Caitlin's YouTube videos and was so happy to find that she has written several books.
This books contains the same charm as her videos on YouTube and I am looking forward to listening to more of her work.
Not for the squeamish!
