Review: Death: A History of Man's Obsessions and Fears

User Review  - Misa - Goodreads

Pretty awesome historical review of Western society's thoughts and practices on death. Definitely some new information for me bringing some killer visuals... but I'm a sucker for the subject. Oh, and there's pictures. That's right. Read full review
