"It is Kevorkian's only authorized biography, one that attempts "to correct the incomplete portrait ... known by most Americans." Maybe that sounds like the makings of a whitewash job, but the book is about the doctor's flaws and missteps as well as his lesser-known charms and tender side of character." CAPITAL NEWSPAPERS "This is an enlightening book and for those thinking on both sides of the issue, the new book about Dr. Kevorkian is a vital read." THE OTTAWA CITIZEN "Jack Kevorkian was not only the most famous physician in the mid-1990; he was, after Bill Clinton, probably the nation's best-known celebrity. Whether you admire or condemn him - Kevorkian made an enormous impact on how the entire nation regards end-of life issues. Surprisingly, their book is excellent, accurate and balanced. While both men are strong supporters, they also know very well his faults and don't shrink from listing them. No reader of this book can have any doubt, for example, that the reason Kevorkian has been in prison since 1999 is Jack Kevorkian. What I had assumed was that they would produce an essentially worshipful work that was more hagiography than biography. Fortunately, I was wrong. "Between the Dying and the Dead," is a much better book." THE OAKLAND PRESS
