Midwest Book Review Thumbs Up!

The Midwest Book Review named A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die a Reviewer’s Choice in the January 2012 issue of the California Bookwatch. Here’s what they said:

“A GOOD GOODBYE: FUNERAL PLANNING FOR THOSE WHO DON’T PLAN TO DIE provides an outstanding coverage of funeral arrangements and covers everything from cremation to caskets. Dosed with light humor and practical insights, it is intended to impart important funeral arrangement details that most don’t know about until faced with a death in the family, and is designed to explore all options and reduce family conflict. Any general lending library should have this reference.”

In addition, the Midwest Review’s Small Press Bookwatch also made A Good Goodbye a Reviewer’s Choice. Here’s what they had to say:

“Dying is the furthest thing on the minds of the living. “A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die” is a guide to planning for one’s death and how to face death when you’re pretty sure it’s not going to happen for a few decades. From planning one’s estate to making one’s last wishes known, Gail Rubin advises readers to talk about death and step off it being a taboo topic. “A Good Goodbye” has plenty of wise wisdom, and is well worth not overlooking for those who don’t want to live in fear of the reaper.”
