The preface to this manual reads, "A career in death and dying chooses you. You do not choose it.... It has been my perspective, and privileged view, to observe one marvelous point. If one wishes to understand the meaning of life, it will most assuredly be found in the words off the lips of those who are about to leave life".
The author's fifteen years of experience working as a psychotherapist with AIDS patients and ten semesters teaching death and dying have culminated in this comprehensive, thoughtful, humanistic manual that is destined to become an invaluable resource book. The book's 130+ exercises and activities explore the emotional, social, and legal aspects of death, including euthanasia, wills, caregiving, stress, the death penalty, and death-related rituals. No book does more to humanize the experiences of death and grieving and promote a more healthy and well-informed response to the many ways in which death enters our lives.
