Wow! I picked this book up solely because of its placement on the library shelf. I learned a lot about dying and preparing myself for the inevitable. There are many things one can do to make it easier on family when one is getting ready to pass into the next life. Give possessions away first. Write out a living will. Donate organs. Tragic deaths can and do happen. Get an autopsy.

Excellent resource. Tremendous help to our family after my mother was diagnosed with terminal ovarian cancer and throughout her transition. Has the best form for end-of-life medical decisions (including the specificity necessary for effective DNR conditions) that I've ever run across, too.

I wish this book had been around before my parents died. I also found it very helpful for me in planning/creating documents I need to have. And yesterday's death of Natasha Richardson reinforced the need to have end-of-life documents ready.
Debra
The financial advisory/author takles issues we'll all have to face someday. A great overview of many end-of-life topics with terrific suggested readings at the end of each chapter. I highly recommend this title.
Jen
A good reference book, but I wouldn't have picked this to read if I didn't have to for a class.
Benedette
A good, informative book that stirs up a lot of feelings. I have to be in the mood to read it.
Elaine
Everyone should probably read this book. It's not
something only for seniors!
Victoria
