"This is a fascinating exploration of how online sites and resources represent, and, in some ways, transform death. The book is written in a lively and accessible style. It helps us to understand our attitudes toward death in a new and illuminating way. Highly recommended!"

—John Martin Fischer, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, University of California, Riverside, USA

"[Stokes addresses] the exploitation of dead people's memories in the form of big data, where numerous e-commerce giants work in tandem with social media platforms … Stokes leaves us here with a call to action. We must wrestle control from these corporations. We must restore dignity to the dearly departed."
