I was half-way through this one when I realized that I’d read it before. It’s a quick read because most of it is in pictures. It’s a quick over-view of burial, but for my money, The American Way of Death is much more interesting. Not a bad read. It has some good pictures. Still, get it from the library. Don’t bother buying it.
