Preparing to Die: The Last, Most Important Thing You Will Ever Do
Dying remains one of the last taboo subjects. Most people will talk about money, or even sex, before they will dying. I think this is true of most people, but it seems especially true of "Baby Boomers," the generation of which I am a member... This reluctance to discuss dying is one of the things I considered when deciding how to structure this book. In reality, my target audience should be anyone with whom God has not shared their departure date for leaving this world. But part of my experience in dealing with the reluctance of people my own age to discuss their own death is that they do have the reality of dealing with the approaching death of their own parents. Thus some of this material, Section Two, will be given from the viewpoint of helping someone prepare to die, while the primary section, Section One, will be addressed directly to those preparing for themselves.
