"Perfect Endings is a book about making peace while we still can. It offers a perfect beginning for the rest of our newly lived life."
"Robert shows us how dying is not only a part of living, but also how it is possible for us to prepare for our own death and—as caregivers to others dying—how we can help them with this polar process."
The book is not at all linear or explanatory and in that lies its strength. It's the best book I've read for getting a feel of what it's actually like to attend a dying person. It works because it conveys the complexity, the many layeredness, the jumble of events and people that tent to coalesce around a deathbed. In this way it would be useful in preparing anyone who has not attended a death to do so.
