You are going to die. If that incontrovertible fact bums you out, you may want to read The Inevitable, which contains 20 essays about death that are alternately funny, sad, enlightening, and fascinating. The book doesn't pretend to have the the answers on this mercurial subject, but at least it asks intriguing questions. Read it before you kick the bucket!
