Dimensions: 8.2in. x 5.5in. x 0.8in.Drawing on in-depth interviews with people who were dying and with the physicians who cared for them, as well as on his own experiences as a physician, Dr. Charles McKhann argues persuasively that physician-assisted dying should be made legally available under certain circumstances.

The author draws on extensive clinical experience in the treatment of patients with cancer, detailed interviews with seriously ill patients and the clinicians who care for them, and a thorough survey of the literature. . . . The book should be very helpful to those who are uncertain about where they stand on this deeply challenging issue. -Franklin G.
