My choice was helped by the reviews I read, & I am glad her writing has found so much favour in so many. Alas, I find it a trifle arrogant & precocious: perhaps the author didn't mean it so, or perhaps it was the translation, I don't know. But, that apart I do believe it contains much help in how the living can support the dying in their final (should that be "final"....or first??) days, and I have learnt much from this book. On that alone I would reccommend it: like so many things, it will largely be determined by what you seek within this book.
I wish though I had read it earlier in the day, perhaps then I would have seized it better. And not let it fall.
