Death is a complicated and sophisticated subject as it is defined in a numerous ways and science cannot answer to every question associated to it. It is darker than the night. It brings sadness and fear. It is unpredictable and even when it stands as a truth nobody knows when to expect it. It comes and takes you.
When the body becomes lifeless, what happens to the soul, to the mind, to the feelings in it?
Even when death has uncertainty and ambiguity it is a very serious topic. But this very death meets us in every article under this book in the peculiar style of the author in a very straight forward way. They make us laugh, think, cry, and they bedazzle us.
