Title: Dying Well: Peace and Possibilities at the End of Life
Author: Ira Byock, MD
My Take on this Title:
Our final phase of life is, in my humble opinion, one of our greatest opportunities to live our values and love most deeply. But, it is viewed in our culture as taboo so no one discusses it or prepares for the inevitable. In this book, Dr. Byock recounts the stories of his patients and their families in order to illustrate how good medicine can help people face death, resolve conflicts, and facilitate death with clarity and peace.If you, or a loved one, is seriously ill, you will not regret learning from Dr. Byock’s decades of seeing the best, and the worst, of living through the final stages.
