It's by no means a morbid book, is very well written and informative and not without its lighter moments. I found it compulsive reading, perhaps because my father is an Alzheimer's patient as was John's. I also lost my step-mother to cancer, and I wish I had had access to this book before in order to help and advise her.
Humphrys and Jarvis write from their own experiences, and although I'm sure there are other terminal illnesses and other circumstances under which people die or wish to be allowed to die, with a little tweaking here or there I think for the broader picture it paints that those others and their carers would appreciate the value of this book.
