From Scientific American
This book is truly a humanistic tour de force. It is a classic, and should be read not only by those who must interact with a dying loved one, but by each of us as we confront our own mortality, and the meaning of a life well lived.
This book provides incisive insights into the hospice process, as only a nurse with the extensive experience of Carolyn Jaffe could express it. . . I am pleased to recommend the reading of this compassionate and enlightening description of hospice, as seen through the eyes of possibly the most important participant in the process-the hospice nurse.
