Outside The Box

I recently wrote about the ever growing importance of digital assets planning and digital legacy safeguarding for the upcoming ‘Outside The Box’ book. The book highlights society’s disconnection with death and the problems this can cause. It brings together a range of end of life, palliative and funeral professionals and explores what it is to live ‘outside the box’ in today’s world.

About the Outside The Box

We live in a society where people struggle to look death in the eye. Death has become the territory of professionals and we rarely see a dead body, unless it is someone very close to us. Death has become hidden, and so more traumatic. This book shows that, if we start talking openly about death, it can change the way we live. In it, people from all walks of life share their experiences and what they have learned from accompanying others. Heartbreaking, angry, questioning and contradictory – even laugh-aloud funny – the stories illuminate, inspire, reassure and inform. They are accompanied by advice and comment from professionals working in end-of-life planning, health, bereavement and funeral care.

Outside The Box: Everyday Stories Of Death, Bereavement And Life – is available from: 26/11/2020 via the link below (free postage) and in Waterstones, Amazon etc.
