Summary

Every day, funeral director Caitlin Doughty receives dozens of questions about death. What would happen to an astronaut's body if it were pushed out of a space shuttle? Do people poo when they die? Can Grandma have a Viking funeral?  

In the tradition of Randall Munroe's What if?, Doughty's new book blends her scientific understanding of the body and the intriguing history behind common misconceptions about corpses to offer factual, hilarious and candid answers to more than 50 urgent questions posed by her youngest fans. 

Listeners will learn what happens if you die on an aeroplane, the best soil for mummifying your dog and whether or not you can preserve your friend's skull as a keepsake. Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? will delight anyone interested in the fascinating truth about what will happen to our bodies after we die.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

Interesting Questions brilliantly answered about the D word shhhh

I love Caitlin Doughty’s YouTube channel so jumped at the chance to get this especially knowing she was narrating.

Some death questions answered in a brilliant way, interesting from start to finish.

A must read(hear) if you want to know the answers to random and relevant questions about death. Caitlin has a wonderful personable way about her and she will get you hooked with her honesty and humour.

Loved it!

fab

loved the book 100% only down side was that the author sounded quite tinny both when using headphones and speaker maybe there is a sound issue not sure but it's worth a listen funny and interesting.
