Product description

Review

‘Uplifting and forthright, calm and positive – and alive to all our needs’ (Michael McGirr, author of Books that Saved My Life)

‘At last, a book to help us prepare for the end of life, with tremendous warmth, wisdom and compassion’  (Caroline Baum, author of Only)

‘Death is a subject most of us try to avoid, and all of us need to discuss. I can’t imagine a better starting-point for that conversation than Ranjana Srivastava’s illuminating, inspiring and intensely practical book. The things we most want in a doctor – kindness, compassion, empathy and the reassuring blend of technical skill and professional integrity – are all here, shining through every word.' (Hugh Mackay, social researcher and author of The Good Life)

‘A book brimming with pathos and profound insights on facing death with compassion, kindness and forgiveness for ourselves and those we may be caring for who are dying. In helping us grapple with our own mortality with unflinching honesty and pragmatism Dr Srivastava empowers us to live our lives to the full with an urgency and authenticity that will transform all our lives for the better.’ (Kon Kon Karapanagiotidis, author of The Power of Hope)
