I bought this book based on the reviews and I was not disappointed. This book was like no other and unique as it was written by a doctor who practices traditional medicine. It makes you think about your own life and what you want it to look like at the end. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has an ageing parent. The first part is about how we treat the elderly in nursing homes, and how attitude is key. The second half is about what people really want in the last period of their life when they are terminal.
