"On Death and Dying" is one of the most important books ever written on the subject and is still considered the bench-mark in the care of the dying.

This companion volume consists of the questions that are most frequently asked of Dr. Kubler-Ross and her compassionate answers. She discusses accepting the end of life, suicide, terminal illness, euthanasia, how to tell a patient he or she is critically ill, and how to deal with all the special difficulties surrounding death. "Questions and Answers on Death and Dying" is a vital resource for doctors, nurses, members of the clergy, social workers, and lay people dealing with death and dying.
