"A helpful book for planning ahead... The authors are two U.S. family physicians who have done an admirable job of putting together some cogent advice for persons planning their health care direction and for the health professionals who might be advising them... Very clear descriptions are presented for the non-professional reader about cardiopulmonary resuscitation, ventilators, dialysis, enteral and parenteral nutrition, intravenous medication and hydration, autopsy, and organ donation. Hospice care is nicely outlined." -- Journal of the American Board of Family Practice
