No reviews yet? Are you serious?! This is a fantastic audio book and guide, teaching deep abiding compassion and love for the dying and all of life. I don't work in palliative care, and it doesn't matter, I was deeply curious, I have witnessed the dying process of a loved one and it is a crucial part of the spiritual journey and the human condition.
