I got this book as I had enjoyed her first one so very much. This was a disappointment. It tells, in a more difficult to follow manner, of the things she saw in her visits to various parts of the world- much of it here in the USA and their death rituals and practices. Seems she had to stretch it out as there wasn't that much of interest, not anywhere near as much as I expected after her excellent first book. I didn't walk away from this feeling inspired or informed. May she get back to the fun and fact filled type book she had written the first time and stay away from trying to make some other rituals seem so exciting and informative. The book fell flat for me.
