"A minute, unsparing, yet tender study that gets closer to the thoughts and feelings of the dying (and those around them) than any comparable research known to me.... A very important book, which must be compared to Sherwin Nuland's How We Die." -- Oliver Sacks, author of Awakenings

"This book is an excellent example of ethnographic work where the in-depth qualititave approach provides sharp insights into the world of research participants who were facing the most profound of challenges -- the end of their own lives...this book deserves a warm welcome from health professionals." -- Palliative Medicine

"[A] very important book that is critical reading for anyone interested in end of life care. The authors have provided a way to give the dying and their friends and families a voice to facilitate making help more available and responsive to their needs.... [A] classic."--, author of Never Too Young to Know: Death in Children's Lives, Associate in Dept. of Psychiatry, Mass General Hospital, Harvard Medical School" -- Phyllis R. Silverman, author of Never Too Young to Know: Death in Children's Lives
