"Death As A Salesman is incisive. It's a logical and easy read on a difficult and emotional subject. Brian Johnston drives home, in an accessible and engaging way, why 'Thou shalt not kill.' still makes sense." --Professor David B. Warner, University of Steubenville
"This book is a tremendous resource for anyone called on to address the issue of 'assisted suicide.' And since we're all going to die, and know friends and family who will likely go before us, it is an issue facing us all!" --Dr. Margaret Anderson
"This is what I've been looking for, it spells out all the dangers that I could see, but couldn't easily explain. I'm going to be giving copies away." --Susan Singleterry
