Not What I Expected! 11 Jun 2006
By - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Be warned that this book is only a list of publications about mortuary science. I didn't know that when I ordered it. I'd assumed that it was an actual mortuary science textbook that would be useful for fiction writing research. As it was not what I expected, I returned it.

Excellent Resource! 22 May 2004
By Jeffrey A Gifford - Published on
Format: Paperback
As a medical librarian, I find this book to be invaluable to anyone pursuing a career in Funeral Service, as well as any academic institution providing a Funeral Science curriculum. Szabo's annotations are detailed, informative, and intelligently written. The bibliographic data cover an exhaustive range of topics, making this a concise reference source suitable for either academic or public libraries.

An invaluable resorce for the funeral director. NOT A TEXT BOOK 14 Jan 2008
By R. S. Curtis - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a list of people, places, and things used by funeral directors, it's a little dated but still a good starting place for locating things funeral directors, and funeral homes in general might use. If you are looking for a book with techniques, and practices of funeral directors this isn't it. This is more like a phone / address book for the industry.

Why would I buy this? 26 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Why would I ever buy this book when I can't even look at at table of contents! Too bad I HAD to give this one star.
