"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.Biografía del autor:
Pilotlight is an organisation set up to act as a tiny flame sparking ideas, projects and alliances to tackle issues of injustice in creative and unexpected ways. It connects unlikely combinations of people to generate fresh approaches to philanthropy. Pilotlight is deliberately small and lean with an increasing network of partners and friends spanning the corporate, philanthropic, government and community sectors. They start from the belief that nothing is impossible and that everyone - through their passion, skills, imagination and ideals - has the right and responsibility to become an agent for social change.
