Concise and thoughtful summary of practical and conceptual aspects of encounters with severe illness. Some useful frameworks and reflective insights. Recommended.
This book is good for everyone and anyone. Although it is primarily a book written for caregivers to learn more about what their loved ones are going through when given terminal diagnosis, it is an incredibly helpful book for anyone to help them know more about empathy in life in general. I highly recommedn it.
A concise, very valuable guide to health care providers and loved ones as they strive to communicate sensitively and effectively with people who are seriously ill... I highly recommend this!
