This is a great book on a difficult subject. The author covers the topic from about every conceivable perspective, having sat bedside with people as a friend, relative, physician, and ethics consultant. It is written with great sensitivity, caring, and knowledge, and provides a full background of the history and the progress of death-with-dignity movements and laws. Long before California finally made physician aid-in-dying legislation a reality (June 2016), he outlined exactly how the law should and does work.

This is one of the finest books in this genre. Stories about real people and the caring doctor who befriended them, tended them and saw to their final wishes. Highly recommended!
