Death & Dying for the Dying from the Dying

A Listmania! list by Jim Reed (Dayton, OH, USA)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Faced with death, many of us start to seriously explore what our lives have been about and what that means to us. More than 4 decades as a behavioral psychologist, health services researcher, and minister do not prepare me any better than 3 tours of combat duty in Vietnam, nor having taught in a medium security prison nor having worked in a state mental hospital, with adolescents. Please read the reviews posted for the books I'm recommending as what comforts one of us many only really tick off the next person, and who needs that when they're dying. These recommendations are from a dead man walking, if you'll excuse the melodramatic inclinations of my final days during the reigns of Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh."
