Though death is a fact of life that we will all have to face one day, it is a difficult subject for people to discuss. Linda Jacobs Altman describes some of the controversial medical issues surrounding this subject, such as euthanasia and the right to die. She also takes us through the beliefs of different religions, discussing each group's idea of what happens to us after we die. Altman's straightforward text creates a better understanding of this sensitive subject.
