A honest examination of the medical profession's handling of end-of-life care.
When is it time to say to a doctor, "Let my loved one go?"
Like millions of Americans caring for aging parents the award-winning science writerKaty Butler
, assumed that her beloved mother and father would meet death on their own terms, free from medical overdoing. She was wrong.
With a poet's eye, a daughter's love, and an investigative reporter's skill, Butler lays bare the wrenching moral choices we face when the ancient reality of death collides with the technological imperatives of modern medicine.
This is a book that is sure to change the national conversation.
