Product description


'[O'Mahony] beautifully describes the "ideal" fantasy death we create for ourselves' Irish Examiner.

'Offers a frank and pessimistic view of how we think about death ... provocative and effective' The Times.

'O'Mahony leaves no stone unturned, sniffing out cant and hypocrisy wherever he finds it. And his views are as consistently intelligent as they are surprising. All of this culminates in an impassioned battle-cry' 4/5, The Daily Telegraph.

'Gives us a rare glimpse into the world of death and dying from the vantage point of a medical doctor' Irish Times.

'The book forces you to confront the most uncomfortable of subjects. This is a good thing' Prospect magazine.

'A joy to read ... I hope that when I die that I have a doctor like O'Mahony to look after me' BMJ blog.

'Compelling, throught-provoking book' The Tablet.

'A provocative essay' Sunday Independent (Dublin).

'A searingly honest and humane book that is challenging yet profoundly important' Guardian.

'Trenchant but compassionate' Irish Daily Mail.

About the Author
