You can’t attend your own funeral. But you can have a blast planning it!

Death is scary—but planning your funeral doesn’t have to be! It’s Your Funeral! will help demystify death, decrease your anxiety, and put the fun back in funeral, whether that means a drunken bacchanal or a somber reflection on just how great you were. Every stage of the legacy planning process is considered, from a burial outfit to a funeral theme. Practical and cheeky questions alike are answered, including:

• What is the most eco-friendly burial method?

• Can I write my own obituary?

• Can my body be shot into space after I die?

• How can I manage my digital legacy?

Offering a plethora of curious facts, strange stories, and inspiration to help you think outside the coffin, It’s Your Funeral! includes worksheets that will ensure your wishes are recorded for posterity. Planning for death should be the time of your life, so let’s get started!

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Light, humorous, and practical.” Chicago Tribune
“Entertaining, educational, and even funny at times…[It’s] a complete, non-depressing reference to end-of-life planning that every household should have.” BookTrib
“Just the right touch of macabre…Helpful, introspective, and fun.” Library Journal (starred review)
“This illuminating, brisk guide breathes vibrant life into a topic many would rather avoid.” Publishers Weekly
“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?
“Kathy Benjamin is amazing at finding answers I never expected, to questions I never expected I’d ask. I am thrilled she’s applied those skills to my future ultimate party." Alex Schmidt, comedy writer and host of Secretly Incredibly Fascinating
“Glib and slightly irreverent…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’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
“[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
