There are real life plans scattered throughout the book. Dillman helps with ideas for who to name to your "funeral posse", picking food or a signature drink, creating a playlist of meaningful music, and many green burial options. Even reminders to check with authorities before starting that funeral pyre are helpful (and now I know I need to check into how to get my husband's body to the Ganges River in India as he desires)! The book is written with a lot of wit, helping to alleviate the unease with which we tend to view our mortality. It's not often you can read a nonfiction book that imparts useful information in an entertaining way, but "The Party of Your Life" fits that category perfectly!
