One of the Best Embalming Textbooks on the Market
on July 22, 2013
I originally purchased this book about two to three years ago, (which I believed I already left a review for it). When I purchased this book was when I started with my interest in becoming an embalmer and attending mortuary college. Even after realizing that this dream was not for everybody, I came to realize that regardless of whether you are studying to become a professional embalmer, funeral director, medical examiner, coroner, mortuary assistant, etc., this fascinating textbook is one heck of a historical reference for none other than a funeral service historian, by none other than one of the best mortuary science authors on the market as well, "Mayer".
So, whether or not you are studying for mortuary school, this book provides a great historical account and appreciation for anybody learning about thanatology, mortuary sciences, the tools-of-the-trade, and more. Worth every penny, of course, I have a knack for purchasing inexpensive textbook that are like locating the Holy Grail, and if you're a college student, then you can understand how expensive a textbook is, and how often if you do locate one that is relatively inexpensive, to snap it up in a heartbeat.
