    One thought on “The Troubled Dream of Life: In Search of a Peaceful Death”

    1. This excellent book is a complex argument built atop clear distinctions and clear thinking, not to mention a welsh of research and experience. It is hard to disagree that having a clearer vision of death as part of our lives, and what it takes to die well, can clear up a lot of the maddening problems in public health policy.

    2. A great and illuminating book. Where it's wrong, it's wrong in instructive ways. Where it's right, it's dead on. I will likely read it again in a couple years.
