When it comes to death, we are all beginners. We must deal with the practical decisions to be made in the coming months and years, as well as engaging with loved ones and facing our fears. Miller and Berger guide you, your friends, and your family through the unfamiliar to-do lists and the emotional and medical choices that often overwhelm us. From choosing how much (or how little) you want to know about your condition to sharing family secrets and adapting your sex life, they start before diagnosis and end well after the memorial. -- adapted from jacket
