Two books inside one volume, this book is for the guidance of terminally ill or chronically physically ill persons who wish to hasten the end of their lives due to pain and distress. (It does not deal with suicide for other reasons.)
Written by the author of the bestselling "Final Exit", this is a vital companion to that book, not only because of the methods and drug information contained within, but also the familial and emotional aspects of assisted suicide.
In the 'Let Me Die..." section, true stories are told of how dying people handled their ends, what methods they used, and how the experience affected them and their loved ones.
In the 'Supplement to Final Exit" section, the laws and political developments are outlined, but, more important, the newly-developed means of 'self-deliverance' using helium or other inert gases is described, with illustrations.

Derek Humphry is an international journalist and author who in the last quarter of a century has written, lectured, and broadcast about voluntary euthanasia and assisted suicide.
He founded the Hemlock Society in l980 and built it into a national organization until retiring from it in l992.
Today he is president of the much smaller 'think-tank' type of organzation, Euthansia Research & Guidance Organization (ERGO).
While his fame is based on the international success of 'Final Exit', his other books, such as the one above, are valuable to the thinking person who wishes to plan carefully for a dignified end.Review:
