What's the one you would recommend to gain more knowledge on death and dying?
Robert Thurman has one I found very informative: The Great Book of Natural Liberation Through Understanding in the Between. There's also a companion lecture on audible: Liberation Upon Hearing in the Between.
it contains some shortcomings & mistakes

The best description of the death process can be found in ChNN's Birth, Life, and Death. It is the clearest and most profound resource in English.
Arrived today. It is short but incredibly dense and will take me a long time to absorb. Thanks for the recommendation. :)

as far as i remeber f.e.: in the section about the practice the mantra of the wrathful herukas & the mantra of the peaceful buddhas are described and translated horribly wrong
