Grades 3-6. The latest in the Be What You Want series takes the mystique out of jobs relating to mortuary science and forensics. Bedell asserts that these jobs, rather than being reserved for people who are fascinated with blood and gore, are actually perfect for those who love to help others, make scientific discoveries, and study the way that people in the past lived. The focus is truly interdisciplinary, exploring careers in both the sciences, social services, and humanities. Cutting-edge technology careers involving advanced techniques in cryonics are described alongside the jobs of those who explore cultural and historical differences in the ways groups of people deal with death. Interviews with real working professionals discuss job conditions and educational requirements, while activities that introduce readers to methodologies in certain jobs are both fun and easily executed. A detailed list of additional resources is included in the end matter, arranged by topic. Using humor and straightforward descriptions, Bedell manages to make jobs dealing with death seem like perfectly natural career choices.
