Profits of Death
Americans stand to gain $2 billion a year by educating themselves about the funeral industry!
Profits of Death In his controversial new book, Profits of Death: An Insider Exposes the Death Care Industries, Darryl J. Roberts, a 30-year veteran of the death care business, breaks the industry's tacit code of silence. This book and website's purpose is to educate the public about the ways many funeral directors and cemetery operators seduce consumers into spending far more than they need to when making final arrangements.

As seen on CBS 60 Minutes

Profits of Death Every once in a great while, a book comes along that reveals information so startling, so unthinkable, that it challenges all our notions about "how things are done". By unlocking the doors to the mortuary and swinging back the cemetery gates, he reveals to the American public the unvarnished truth about...

  • What actually goes on behind a mortuary's closed doors
  • How the "death merchants" manipulate you into overspending
  • Why giving too much information to the funeral director is risky
  • When pre-need planning may be your best option
  • Some of the biggest mistakes you can make when planning a funeral
  • How to skillfully navigate the maze of decisions that must be made
...and the many ways you can save money to cut your costs by as much as half!

Mr. Roberts is available as a speaker and/or guest columnist.
