A decent attempt at examining death. It covers the physiological aspects in depth that I haven't seen in other books on the subject (probably a good companion to "Being Mortal" by Atul Gawande). It gives a bit more coverage to right to die issues than some other books, and examines the origins of hospice care. It seemed to buy into the whole near death experience a bit too much for me. Although that is a good reminder for me of how faith can help people deal with their fears of death. While that may not hold for me, it was a good reminder of respecting that it can help other people, and I should probably let it go if it helps them. My other big take away was that the most common regret of the dying was living the life other people expected of them rather than having the courage to live life true to themselves. Certainly a valuable lesson for living.
