Reviews. "In Loren Mayshark's Death: An Exploration: Learning to Embrace Life's Most Feared Mystery, he writes, 'experiencing death has dragged me into emotional pits and has also compelled me to deep contemplation. This journey has filled me with wonderment as well as remorse.' I found those sentences to be humble ones which transmit the abstract premise of his book into something we can explore in a concrete way. His narrative voice is at the same time both scholarly and personal. It lets the reader join him in trying to figure out what this concept of death is. His observations emerge out of his curious youth, grow to an adolescent's pondering, and then further mature with the wise citations of well-researched information from philosophers, scientists, and other distinguished thinkers. The author makes no definite assertions in his book, allowing the reader to stay open to nuance. Like Mayshark, we are all immature in answering death's puzzling question." -Peter Hamilton, author of The Devil Hates a Coward "In Death: An Exploration: Learning to Embrace Life's Most Feared Mystery Loren Mayshark shares his personal inquiry of what death is or could be in the stories of others as they faced the inevitable and find solace in religion, science, nature, spiritual guidance. But the exploration doesn't stop there. While knowing and understanding death often remains a conundrum, this exploratory primer suggests what is separate can be whole; what defines death, defines life. Death: An Exploration: Learning to Embrace Life's Most Feared Mystery is a terrific read for those embarking on their pursuit of the illusive, the contrary, the inescapable: death... and life." Linda A. Lavid, author of The Dying Of Ed Mees--This text refers to the paperback edition.

The author explores the connection between death and nature--the extreme environments taking their toll. He explores taking ayahuasca--seeing death in a vision. He explores what death might look like a few short years in the future based on inventions people are creating now, such as nanobots.
This book is far from morbid. It's a tool to think about something that we all experience, something we all must go through both as a spectator when those we love die and as a participant. It doesn't hurt to think about it a bit does it? Mayshark just wants people to ponder what death means, why it matters and how it can be different depending on how we view it. It's a fairly quick read but I enjoyed it.I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
In some chapters, each comprising an essay on one or two facets of death, the author carefully holds your hand and guides you through the possibilities of what happens after we declare our permanent vacation from the realm of the living. In other chapters, he nurtures the that maybe one day we as a species will triumph over it.
It's a mindful approach to a topic that many people turn a blind eye to, yet the material empowers you after turning the last page. Furthermore, the footnotes of the book have a plethora of resources to further engage the topics touched on by the book.
All in all, I really enjoyed this book, and I'm definitely looking forward to Mayshark's future releases!
Personally, I really liked the passages that related the journey of salmon and their cyclical life, where they instinctively swim back to where they were born to die, tied to the idea that perhaps we have a greater instinctual knowledge on how to die (in terms of how to deal with death) than we think. Definitely an interesting concept, and the book offers such a diverse set of views that it really gives you a lot to think about.
