Description"Dying to Know" is a ground breaking new book that aims to cut through the taboos and place death firmly in the circle of life. Quirky without being irreverent, accessible without being glib, and challenging without being disturbing, "Dying to Know" is a collection of conversation starters that lifts the lid on death and helps connect us all a little more. Subjects covered include: planning a personalised funeral; ways to help people who are terminally ill; making an emotional will; organ donation; creating online memorials; opening the conversation with children; things to do before you die; and, a host of other topics. "Dying to Know" is the result of lengthy consultation with palliative care workers, people with terminal illness, funeral industry professionals, children, religious leaders, doctors and those who have lost loved ones. It doesn't claim to be a book with all the answers. Just ideas, insights, advice and inspiring, illustrations about a subject none of us can escape. Read it and then rush into the daylight to get on with the more challenging matter of living.

Reviews for Dying to Know
Very useful book
'Dying to Know' is the second book from the Pilotlight group, a not-for-profit who published 'Change the World for Ten Bucks'. Pilotlight believe that renewing a conversation abut dying (which has become a taboo in modern society) can help build supportive communities and inspire change for the living. 'Dying to Know' offers 60 thoughts that reflect on responding to terminal illness, death and grieving. Input for the book was received from children, palliative care workers, people with terminal illness, funeral industry professionals, religious leaders, philosophers, doctors, those who have lost loved ones and many friends. The result is an easily accessible, attractive, practical offering that helps open the door to conversation and practical action. by Stephanie Edwards
