Praise

"A dear old teacher of mine taught me, in his dying days, that death need not be horrible. In fact, it can be enlightening and educational. In much the same spirit, Marilyn Webb’s The Good Death offers an excellent road map for life’s last journey."
–Mitch Albom, author of Tuesdays with Morrie

"Transforming death to a subject discussed openly by the dying, their families and the medical community is the greatest value of this book.  The Good Death receives my strongest endorsement and should be read by physicians and laypersons alike."
–S. Jay Olshansky, Ph.D., The Journal of the American Medical Association

"Webb reminds us, through her firsthand observations, clearly and compellingly presented, that dying need not be a time of frantic terror, or terrible suffering."
–Robert Coles, The Washington Post

"An intelligent and compassionate look at one of our last taboos–and a hopeful message."
–Daniel Goleman, Ph.D., author of Emotional Intelligence

"A noteworthy contribution to the continuing public debate over an issue that touches everyone."
Kirkus Reviews

"A sweeping overview of dying and end-of-life care in contemporary America. The poignancy of these stories and the clarity and force of Webb’s investigation provide a foundation from which to explore what ‘dying well’ can mean."
–Ira R. Byock, M.D., author of Dying Well

"Webb deftly analyzes the major themes in the contemporary debate about how, where, and when we can, and should, die."
