The art of dying: how to leave this world with dignity and grace, at peace with yourself and your loved ones
St. Martin's Press,
1st St. Martin's ed.
" The Art of Dying speaks to modern readers with refreshing frankness and wit. It covers the subject thoroughly, from how to inform relatives of impending death, to coping with pain and fear, to death rituals, to preparing for a possible afterlife or, depending on one's viewpoint, the end of it all." -- Publishers Weekly "Along with our caring presence, this book may be the finest gift we can give someone facing the last stage of life." --Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People "Dr. Weenolsen . . . doesn't duck the tough questions." --M. Brewster Smith, PhD, former president, American Psychological Association "This book gives the same things a good support group does--compassionate sympathy and practical advice for people sharing pain. It will be a godsend." --Rebecca Brown, author of Gifts of the Body "Begins with 'the day you receive the diagnosis' and the sudden realization that 'never again will you be as you were. Even if by some miracle you heal, it will be only temporary.' Weenolsen takes the panic and paralysis out of such news through wise, aggressive, no-holds-barred approaches." --Patricia Holt, San Francisco Chronicle "A book everyone can benefit from reading." --Nancy Pearl, author of More Book Lust "Also for family and friends of dying persons, for professionals in the health-care fields, and for those who train them." --Hannelore Wass, PhD, founding editor, Death Studies
