Till Death

The Book on Dying

Jane Brody has helped you eat well and stay healthy. But when that fails, she’ll help you cope with death, too. Her new book, Jane Brody’s Guide to the Great Beyond, sails into uncharted waters, and according to a Los Angeles Times review, Brody deserves praise for dabbling with the inevitable. Brody takes us from diagnosis to death, and describes every step of the way—from spiritual care to grieving. She provides checklists for dealing with doctors, planning funerals, and does it all in a straightforward and humorous way. As Times reviewer writes: “One has to love a book on death that says hopefully, ‘You've got time.”’
