Placing the Bucket
The book argues that this represents a lost opportunity and there is much that we can do to prepare for this moment so that those we leave behind are less adversely affected. We tend to avoid the subject of our own inevitable passing as long as practically possible.

This book initially started life as a practical guide focused on preparing for death, but as it progressed it went on to include, pain management, grieving and culminated in suggestions to the newly bereaved, as they commence their new life alone; as such it is intended for both men and women... men who perhaps need to take a leading role in planning and preparing for death, and women in respect of advice on their resumption of a normal life, once their husbands have died. Some may consider my gender approach somewhat sexist, but it is based on the assumption that many men invariably die first; their average longevity in 1st World countries being at least 5 to 6 years less than that of women. Just look around any retirement village and the preponderance of women will verify this statement! (Of course, this should hardly be a surprise given the well-known fact that God, preferring men, takes them sooner?). It is recommended reading for both mature aged and younger couples alike. (But not for those already deceased – for them I am afraid it is one book too late!) Given the serious nature of the subject matter, I won’t encourage you to enjoy the book, but I do hope that you find it beneficial and that you read it in time!
“Congratulations on publishing another fine and useful book. It is very well written, with the serious nature often interspersed with moments of apt humour and poetry. I truly admire all your effort to have made this possible.”
