Synopses & Reviews
The Right to be Treated as a Living Human Being. The right to maintain a sense of hopefulness. The right not to die alone. These are a few of the 17 rights that can help people face death with serenity and dignity. Examining the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of death, Kessler brings a sensitive subject out in the open and offers gentle but forthright guidance on the physical, emotional, and spiritual processes of dying. Perhaps most important of all, this thought-provoking book gives both the caretaker and the dying a springboard for communicating honestly with each other as well as with health-care workers.
"This book serves the needs of the person sitting by the bedside as much as the person who is lying in it. In it you will find gentleness and peace in the experience of death". -- Marianne Williamson
