Product description

Review

This is an important book. It needs to be. Slowly, we are coming to realise that a life well lived might decently conclude with a death well and timely died. We used to know this, although it was only spoken about in code. The medical profession certainly understood it, and then Harold Shipman scared the daylights out of everybody. The baby boomers have tried to jog away from death and are learning that whatever you do you still end up out of breath. Yet what we dread is not death, but the prospect of an agonising time a dying. We shouldn't have to fear it. Thank heavens John is talking about. (Terry Pratchett 2008-11-13)

'Powerful... compelling' (Daily Mail 2008-11-13)

'Comforting... Honest... It is a relief to have some of the private struggles of dealing with death brought out into the open. He is determined to tell it like it is.' (Daily Telegraph 2008-11-13)

'Impassioned and impressive' (Sunday Time, from an interview with Dominic Lawson 2008-11-13)

'Tremendously uplifting ...deserves the widest readership' (News Talk 2008-11-13)

'A thought-provoking, eye-opening book.' (YOU Magazine 2008-11-13)
