Peck uses this exploration of the moral and legal ramifications of euthanasia as a platform to condemn what he views as the "rampant disorder" of secular humanism in the U.S. This abridgment omits in its entirety the book's discussion of medical issues and gives brief attention to the legal issues, concentrating on the psycho-spiritual aspects of what Peck calls "the work of dying." Peck's reading leaves the impression of a rather pedantic and stuffy lecturer who is grappling with his own fears about death and dying as he addresses the social and political debate on euthanasia.
