I enjoyed reading this book. The author writes in a very comforting style. The book certainly gives you a lot to think about but doesn't overwhelm or scare you about what might be coming up in the future. Instead, the book and the author make you feel like you can do this.

I admit I am biased but this book blew me away. It is approachable, it is hard, it is funny, it is poignant. So many people need a book like this as our parents, grandparents, and friends face sudden or not-so-sudden illnesses. Filled with personal and relatable stories, this book gently guides you through a journey, one you realize you are already on yourself. Beautiful.
