The book is, Encyclopedia Of The End: Mysterious Death In Fact, Fancy, Folklore, And More by Deborah Noves.
Written in encyclopedic form, this book delivers. It is a compilation of a large variety of topics and things relating to death, dying, burial, and what lies beyond.
Well read people will likely already be aware of much of the information covered in the book. The book itself would best be displayed as a coffee table book and morbid conversation starter.
On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this book a 7.
