Description

As our population ages, many individuals are faced with making complex medical decisions, for themselves and for others, in times of great stress. How far should doctors go when trying to prolong life? How can we decide what is "too far" and "not far enough" for our loved ones unless we know what their wishes are?

Letting Go shows us how to start thinking about our end-of-life stage before we get there; how to make a living will that will help people make decisions on our behalf; and how we can maintain our dignity and autonomy for as long as possible.

Drawing on many years of experience as an intensive-care specialist, and writing with great insight and compassion, Dr Corke shows us all the ways in which people can make a mess of dying--and, more importantly, in doing so, he teaches us how we can do it better.
