Review: The Last Dance: Encountering Death and Dying

User Review  - Katie - Goodreads

The best book I've read on death and dying issues...everything from cultural attitudes on death to the psychological impact of different types of death (ie, death of a child, suicide,etc.), and the process of grieving. Excellent! Read full review
