He describes the legal status of assisted suicide in the US and in various countries; examines the issues of depressive suicide and the "denial of death syndrome"; devotes several chapters on Kevorkian; and examines the case for rational suicide and the possibilities in the future of euthanasia. He closes with appendices which include a chronology, a description of the state of Oregon's physician-assisted suicide laws, lists of related books and films, and the credo of the organization he founded to research the best legal ways to conduct self-delivered and assisted suicide.
