Throughout the book, the focus is patients' needs. The author's approach is humane, open-minded, and oriented to effective reseults. Dr. Hallenbeck clearly believes that listening is a key skill, and has as clearly listened carefully to his patients, and learned a great deal from them. That orientation has a lot to do with making this book a positive one to read, as well as a source of a great deal of useful information. From other reviews, it seems that medical professionals find it very useful. So too did this non-professional -- so much so, that it will affect the choices I make when I am next responsible for the care of a dear one who is dying, and when my own time comes.
