...Provides a unique window into the fear and anxieties of the seriously ill patient.

Review:

"This is an exceptional book. At times it is superb; occasionally it is utterly elegant.... It is always warmed by the uniqueness and individuality of each human being whose thoughts and experiences are quoted.... The authors are uniformly superb as they comment on the words of their reporters.... As a readable and concise text to assist clinicians and families needing the advice and experience of others in similar straits, the book's brevity is a plus.... The authors' sensitivity and scholarliness are frequently enhanced by their philosophical observations...."-Journal of Nervous and Mental Disorders
