The Seven Ages of Death

A Forensic Pathologist's Journey Through Life




Forensic pathologist and bestselling author of Unnatural Causes, Dr Richard Shepherd, brings his unparalleled honesty and insight to a new book about life and death.

What can death teach us about life?

In his career conducting thousands of post-mortems, Dr Richard Shepherd has examined death at every stage of life. From old to young, murder to misadventure, and from illness to accidental death, each autopsy is its own unique investigation: revealing secrets about life, mortality, and even about himself.

From the author of Unnatural Causes comes a powerful, endlessly fascinating and above all reassuring new book about death - how to understand it, postpone it, and, when our time comes (as it must come), how to embrace it, as our last and greatest adventure.
