Reviews

2022 Imadjinn Award Finalist

"Benjamin exposes readers to death in a light, humorous, and practical way."--Chicago Tribune

"Kathy Benjamin puts the fun in funerals by making readers chuckle, kind of in a shoulder-nudging way that lets us know it's okay if we don't necessarily want crying beside our crypts."--PostBulletin.com

"This illuminating, brisk guide breathes vibrant life into a topic many would rather avoid."--Publishers Weekly

"Just the right touch of macabre....helpful, introspective, and fun."--Library Journal

"A complete, non-depressing reference to end-of-life planning that every household should have and every person should read."--BookTrib

"Laugh-out-loud funny."--GeekMom, 5/5 stars

"[A] concise but comprehensive guide with charm, wit and more than a little absurdity. It's the rare book that I'd recommend even to someone who hates the subject matter (in fact, I'd argue that's precisely who needs it the most)."--Jason Pargin, former executive editor of Cracked.com and author of John Dies at the End

"Fact-packed and funny, It's Your Funeral! is essential reading for these changing times."--Florence Isaacs, author of Do I Have to Wear Black to a Funeral?

"Glib and slightly irreverent, this quirky tome is packed with useful nuggets for planning one's final send off. With breezy writing and helpful planning guides, It's Your Funeral! makes the task of funeral planning seem less daunting, and dare I say a bit of fun."--Todd Harra, undertaker and author of Mortuary Confidential

"Dying seems bad--which is why I never really planned to do it--but Kathy's hilarious and informative book proves that it doesn't have to be. I laughed, I learned and I even started coming up with basic plans for my own funeral including a funeral cake (which, Kathy's right, should be a thing). I'm still not entirely sold on the *idea* of dying, but I at least feel better equipped to handle it on a logistical level."--Daniel O'Brien, writer on Last Week Tonight
