Funeral director answered all sorts of taboo questions in his industry including will author see the client naked, the strange stuff customers wanted in their caskets, fights among grievers. biggest ripoff with industry, conglomerate McCasket, how funerals were paid, how the industry changed, getting more business on fixing other funeral director's mistakes to what he think of Six feet under TV show.
Author sure cheerfully destroy the funeral director stereotype portrayed by Hollywood.
Book may be frank & graphic and may put off people ,but it presented tactfully & tastefully.
Epilogue on author's son on why he followed his father's business because his father played poker games on slow times on the job so apt.
