  • Smoke Gets in Your Eyes And Other Lessons from the Crematory
Product Description:

"Morbid and illuminating" (Entertainment Weekly)―a young mortician goes behind the scenes of her curious profession.

Armed with a degree in medieval history and a flair for the macabre, Caitlin Doughty took a job at a crematory and turned morbid curiosity into her life’s work. She cared for bodies of every color, shape, and affliction, and became an intrepid explorer in the world of the dead. In this best-selling memoir, brimming with gallows humor and vivid characters, she marvels at the gruesome history of undertaking and relates her unique coming-of-age story with bold curiosity and mordant wit. By turns hilarious, dark, and uplifting, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes reveals how the fear of dying warps our society and "will make you reconsider how our culture treats the dead" (San Francisco Chronicle).

ATTENTION: Doctors Who Are Burnt Out, Sick of the Bull, and Want a New Career


Are you working longer and longer?

Are you getting paid less and less?

Are you spending too much time filling out forms?

Are you frustrated with the EMR?

Are you worried about lawsuits and doing everything you can to cover your butt?

Do you feel like medicine is not what it used to be?

Do you think your future will get worse with Obamacare?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you have probably thought about leaving medicine.

But the problem is ... you don't know who to turn. Few of your peers dare to leave and fewer will help you make the right decision.

DISCOVER: Strategies for Quitting Medicine and Starting a Non-Clinical Career You Will Love


Let "Doctor, Quit Your Job!" be your guide.

In chapter 1, you will find my story of how I became a doctor and how I finally left medicine.

In chapter 2, you will find reasons why the future of physicians is quite bleak and how you are not so crazy for wanting to give up practicing clinical medicine.

In chapter 3, you will learn about famous people who were doctors or who had medical schooling, but then left the field to pursue something else. Their stories will instill hope in you. You will see that it is possible to have a bright future in a whole new line of work.

In chapter 4, you will learn how to decide if you should quit or not. And if you do decide to quit, you will learn how to face your fears and find the strength to leave, while minimizing your financial risks.

In chapter 5, you will learn how to tackle your student loans, no matter how much you owe Uncle Sam.

In chapter 6, you will learn about the hidden cost of quitting – the malpractice tail coverage – and if you really need to get it or not.

In chapter 7, you will learn if you need to go back to school to get another degree or not.

In chapter 8, you will learn about non-clinical jobs available to physicians. Transitioning into a new field won’t be easy, but once you make it, you will see how your medical background gives you a substantial advantage over your competition.

In chapter 9, you will learn why you don’t need someone to hire you and why creating your own job is the best gig out there.
