Book Recommendation: Final Rights: Reclaiming the American Way of Death

Do you have questions about whether scattering cremains is allowed in Wisconsin? Are you wondering what about pre-paid funerals in Nebraska? Or regulation of casket sales in Oklahoma? The answers can all be found in a wonderful book I recently discovered, Final Rights: Reclaiming the American Way of Death by Joshua Slocum and Lisa Carlson.

The first half of the book addresses consumer rights issues ranging from green burials to embalming to caskets. The second half of the book answers common questions and concerns related to burial in all 50 states.

Easy to use, intriguing information, and internet resources make this a very usable resource. The current cover price is $19.95 -- I'm certain an afternoon reading this book will allow you to save costs on a funeral far beyond the initial expense.
