Iserson's frank, accessible description of what happens to bodies after they die is full of facts, history, quotations, and statistics that provide the reader with an inkling of the complex history of burial, the mores of other cultures, the development of current funeral practices in the U.S., and the impact on the environment of burial in the face of growing population. Iserson hopes, after reading his book, his readers will donate their organs and tissues; forms are provided at the back of the book. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
