"Kerrigan's tone is carefully balanced and the writing is compelling - he urges us to seize the day before it seizes us" (Sarah Stone, Dying Matters Coalition).

Perhaps if we prepare ourselves thoughtfully for death - whether our own or a loved one's - and take charge of our own affairs, we will be able to reduce some of the suffering involved. With new medical life-support technologies, generational & family conflict, complicated loans and pensions, concerns for a greener planet, and all our online activities...Dying, mourning and their aftermath can be a whole lot of grief. Where There's a Will guides you through all the emotional, financial, legal and practical issues that you need to consider. With a combination of constructive tips and thoughtful reflections on dying, death and bereavement, this book throws light on subjects that all too often remain taboo.
