Brilliant

This is a book everyone in our. Modern western ‘culture ‘ should be familiar with.
Yes, the content will make you cry but stick with it, there is safety and truth in the words.
As someone who has the knowledge of a journey soon to end, I am less scared of the destination and separation that transition will enforce.
Thank you for your wisdom.

Informative and comforting

I purchased this audiobook after my mother had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. It was recommended to me by my dentist who had read it and knowing of the sad situation of our family, thought I might find it helpful. At first I thought it was a bit gory to read a book about death. But it actually prepared me for what was to come in a comforting way, so I knew what to expect, that things did not come as a shock or a surprise. I recommended the book to the nurses of the palliative care unit and some of them read it and found it good too. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to understand better and who wants to alleviate the fear of the unknown. Thank you Dr Mannix!

If you read only one book this year.....

Joining what I can only imagine is a river (stream is not enough) of fan mail. Thank you for such a brilliant book. I fear I’m not articulate enough to tell you here how much I admire your work, not just the work of your career but also the book.
As I read it I kept thinking of my friends young and old and thinking they should read it too!

Food for the soul

A thought provoking sometimes difficult theme to listen to but such an authentic honest discussion of death and the process of dying. Thank you Kathryn.

Such a great book!<br />

I really thought this book was great all the way around! The only thing that I wish is that it included some story about someone who wanted to end their medical suffering but isn't allowed to do so in the State that we live in. How do you handle that person? otherwise...the book is very well written and nariated. Five stars!
