Publisher's Summary

For fans of Being Mortal and When Breath Becomes Air, the acclaimed founder of Death over Dinner offers a practical, inspiring guide to life's most difficult yet important conversation.

Of the many critical conversations we will all have throughout our lifetime, few are as important as the ones discussing death - and not just the practical considerations, such as DNRs and wills, but what we fear, what we hope, and how we want to be remembered. Yet few of these conversations are actually happening. 

Inspired by his experience with his own father and countless stories from others who regret not having these conversations, Michael Hebb co-founded Death over Dinner - an organization that encourages people to pull up a chair, break bread, and really talk about the one thing we all have in common. Death over Dinner has been one of the most effective end-of-life awareness campaigns to date; in just three years, it has provided the framework and inspiration for more than 100,000 dinners focused on having these end-of-life conversations. As Arianna Huffington said, "We are such a fast-food culture, I love the idea of making the dinner last for hours. These are the conversations that will help us to evolve." 

Let's Talk About Death (over Dinner) offers keen, practical advice on how to have these same conversations - not just at the dinner table, but anywhere. There's no one right way to talk about death, but Hebb shares time- and dinner-tested prompts to use as conversation starters, ranging from the spiritual to the practical, from analytical to downright funny and surprising. By transforming the most difficult conversations into an opportunity, they become celebratory and meaningful - ways that not only can change the way we die, but the way we live.

So grateful that I had this book when my mom died

I don't remember how I found this book but I am so grateful I did. It completely changed my perspective on death and showed me how to really start processing my grief. A must-read for everyone to be honest, because everyone could benefit from seeing death and grief through a different perspective.
