The book does not engage in any philosophical discussion of life and death, despite the title. The author talks about breast pumps, cryogenics and birth control without venturing an opinion about them.
She seems more interested in the biographies of people who were associated with various movements than in discussing our attitudes of life and death. Rather than taking a stand on an issue the reader is left to determine the author's position by how sympathetically she paints the protagonists. The subject matter is so rich it is hard to believe that she did not dive into it with more conviction.
The performance is very good. It is read with excellent pacing and inflection and the narrator's voice is pleasant.
Despite the title this is not a reflection on life and death. I'm still not sure what it is.

Beautifully written & scholarly, Professor Lepore sweeps the reader through life’s stages
& the backstory history. Highly recommended for anyone but especially boomers!
