"A fascinating book, written in a lively, accessible style." -- "Choice"
"Highly readable and offers several examples of Cantor's wry sense of humor. It also reveals an extraordinary depth and breadth of research and advances a number of serious conclusions." -- "Journal of Legal Medicine"
"Although death is a universal experience, few of us have looked beyond the simple choice between burial and cremation. For those who share the author's curiosity, Mr. Cantor has provided an informative, thorough, and often entertaining explication of the fate of our bodies." -- "New York Journal of Books"
"Norman Cantor has taken a subject that could be dull and dry and written an extensive and interesting account of the various customs and practical questions that might arise concerning the care of a corpse.... Cantor's ingenuity is manifested by his ability to present lively examples and intriguing anecdotes." -- "Health Progress"
