5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By John G. Tomlinson on January 28, 2008
Format: Hardcover
This book is more helpful for people dealing with family issues when trying to plan long-term care. It was not very helpful for me as I had gained similar information already from other books that also including practical information about planning long-term care. It really is just a list of questions with a brief intro to each topic. Given the inexpensive price, I do not regret buying it, but I only got one or two ideas from it.

Format: Hardcover
Susan Piver provides a great service to all of us--especially Baby Boomers who now must face life's great challenge: the death of parents--and eventually ourselves.

Piver's previous books seem like a natural lead-in to this her newest book. She shows us how to face the facts of life--and death--with integrity and wisdom.

An important book to have--and share with friends and family.
