Review:

The tone of the chapters is non-threatening and reassuring. The topic of death and dying is a difficult one that can heighten reader apprehension. The authors appear at ease with these topics and address issues directly without sensationalism or deception...There is a pleasant balance between presenting research findings and describing those experiences/feelings/thoughts that are more difficult to quantify.

The book offers broad, yet in-depth, coverage of relevant topics. Organization of topics is nicely sequenced. Examples are clear and relevant. A wide range of material is presented to illustrate chapter content (e.g., poetry, drawings, photographs, case histories).
