Get Dead by journalist (and non-chef) Jamie Oliver is a taboo-smashing insider look at the subject of death and all who deal with it in a professional sense. Oliver talks to doctors, homicide police, religious leaders and funeral directors – all of whom have their own unique slant on the state of death. The book aims to debunk some myths surrounding death and to offer an unsentimental narrative on various aspects of it, and how as a culture, we deal with the inevitable reality of death.
