Content is what I expected, but many pages have highlighted passages or sentences by previous readers which is a bit off putting. I know it was second hand but I did not expect the book to be defaced like this.

By Lisa Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book explains many different aspects of how cultures prepare a person after death. This is important information for anyone who works with multicultures. Schools and nursing homes would find this information helpful when deaths occur.
