There are some really interesting questions in this book such as Can someone donate blood after they die? and Did mummies stink when they were wrapped? The answers are extensively researched and not based on personal opinion or experience per se.

Lots of illustrations by Dianne Ruz accompany the text in the book. These illustrations are not scary and kind of cute in fact.

Overall, this book did increase my knowledge on death. The author busts some myths with scientific explanation and I did feel fun reading the book.
