Reviews

Dr. Zaner's book is a good resource for those seeking a greater understanding of the dynamics and interplay of end-of-life events and the need to be there for vulnerable patients and their families. -- The Annals of Pharmacotherapy Each account enables the reader to feel the overwhelming emotions (and comprehend the immense difficulty) of choosing not to prolong life in situations where there is no hope of maintaining an acceptable quality of life. -- Choice I recommend this book to fellow clinicians. It helps to hear about our work from compassionate, empathetic, thoughtful person such as Zaner. I will not quickly forget his concept of the awesome vulnerability of my patients. -- Healthcare Communication Review


These moving conversations and reflections place the reader squarely at the bedside, where ethical decision making is deeply situated in the agonizing dilemmas confronted by the sick.... extraordinary insights into the experience of patients, family members, and those involved in their care... an invaluable resource, - S. Kay Toombs, author of The Meaning of Illiness
