When I saw the topic of Gail Rubin's latest book, A Good Goodbye, two immediate concerns leaped out at me: 1) How can she fill an entire book with funeral planning? (she did) And, 2) this is going to be quite a somber read (it's not). For your information, the book is chock full of incredible ideas, information and real life stories that are incredibly relevant. As for concern number two, the book is anything but a downer. It's practical, creative and even funny. Gail Rubin presented a touchy topic in a wonderfully easy-to-read, light manner. A Good Goodbye is a book I didn't know I needed until I read it.

I don't know anyone who likes to think (let alone talk or read) about dying, but given the inevitability we all need to just buckle down and prepare! Finally, there's a upbeat guide book that brings a light touch to the "icky" subject everyone tries to avoid. Gail is our perky party planner (ok, so it's for a party no one wants to go to) but hey, her humor will keep you reading and learning what most don't learn until a crisis or death - which is a really bad time to find out! I was shocked to read that only 24% of us preplan a funeral -- and less than 46% tell their family their final wishes. Oyyy, that's a lot of unnecessary heartache waiting to happen. I love when she says, "Just as talking about sex won't make you pregnant--talking about funerals won't make you dead!" Gail also includes important checklists and a free 10-page planning form downloadable from her website AGoodGoodbye. I think it is a must-read for Baby Boomers... and well, any adult still breathin'! Gail was a dynamic guest on my Internet radio program, Coping With Caregiving, on May 21, 2011, which you can hear at `Listen via the archives', segment 2 at wsRadio. -Jacqueline Marcell, Author of 'Elder Rage', International Speaker on Eldercare and Alzheimer's, Host of the 'Coping with Caregiving' Radio Show
