Praise

Advance praise for Jane Brody’s Guide to the Great Beyond

“We’re all going to die some day, so we might as well do it right. Jane Brody, a master of information and storytelling, does that in her wonderful and enjoyable new book. This is for everyone who doesn’t like the subject–and for everyone else as well. ”
–Betty Rollin, author of Last Wish and Here’s the Bright Side

“Jane Brody teaches us how to go smartly into the good night, holding our loved one’s hands, heads held high.”
–Dan Shapiro, Ph.D., Arnold P. Gold Professor of Medical Humanism, Penn State College of Medicine

“I didn’t think it could be done, but then Jane Brody has always accomplished the impossible–she has demystified and given us real control over the thing we fear the most. This book is a gift to all her fellow humans.”
–Diane E. Meier, M.D., director, Center to Advance Palliative Care, Mount Sinai School of Medicine

“This is more than a ‘primer.’ It is a must-read for anyone dealing with his or her own end-of-life issues or those of a loved one. Brody leads us on a journey we would rather not take by explaining things we would rather not think about –with compassion, caring, and an understanding that death is an inevitable part of life for which we must prepare.”
–William D. Novelli, CEO, AARP

“At long last we have a comprehensive, humane book about end-of-life care. This is not a ‘pop’ book but rather a thoughtful, science-based, honest discussion of a topic people want to avoid–and do so at their own risk. While it is facile to speak of a ‘good death’ it is all too easy to mis-plan and end up experiencing a bad one.”
–Robert N. Butler, M.D., president and CEO, International Longevity Center
