The Seven Ages of Death
What can death teach us about life?
In his career conducting thousands of post-mortems, Dr Richard Shepherd has examined death at every stage of life. From old to young, murder to misadventure, and from illness to accidental death, each autopsy is its own unique investigation- revealing secrets about life, mortality, and even about himself.
From the author of Unnatural Causes comes a powerful, endlessly fascinating and above all reassuring new book about death - how to understand it, postpone it, and, when our time comes (as it must come), how to embrace it, as our last and greatest adventure.
