“Charles Cowling speaks openly and with clarity about every aspect of the practicalities of death and funerals. The result is a surprisingly gripping book to read and one that will help many to help themselves through what we all know can be a difficult time. Don’t wait till the need arises, read it now and have it to hand when you do need it.” The Good Book Stall
“There are not many books that you can say with assurance should be in every home without exception, this is definitely one!” Norwich Christian Resource Centre
“One of those wonderful and sadly all-too-rare writers who are able to be witty, serious, and funny all at the same time.” Bob Butz, author of Going Out Green
“The content is extremely comprehensive, but is broken down into easily-assimilated sections … there are also plenty of signposts to relevant websites.” Help the Hospices
“Not for the fragile … I found its “Just decide what you want” approach a touch too bracing at times.” Church Times
