    Life With Dignity At The End

    For Atul Gawande, author and surgeon, the key question to ask a terminally ill person is: How do you wish to live as fully as possible in the time you have? The answers to this question are as individual as the people to whom this question is directed. Gawande uses case histories of patients, including his father, to illustrate his philsophy of a full life rather than an assisted suicide or medically demeaning death. This book will strike a chord with readers who have experienced elder care and the end-of-life issues that inevitably follow. It is not for the faint of heart or squeamish, as Gawande describes in graphic detail the nature of the illnesses confronting these people. He also shows how he learned to present end-of-life questions that gave patients and their families ways to maximize their time doing what was most important to them.

    Being mortal

    This book is a must-read. Although written by a doctor, it's in layman's terms. It is a good perspective about aging, illness, dying and how our society deals with these issues.
