When my best friend came to the last chapter of her life last year after a long battle with cancer, I was beside myself. This book was so INCREDIBLY helpful for me, for her, for her family, for our friends. If you ever find yourself providing hospice care or just in the process of losing someone you love, read this book. I promise it will help.

At the moment, I am immersing myself in literature about death and dying, as I hope to work as a volunteer in the palliative care field. This book is an absolute revelation. It puts into perspective so well the pain I recently suffered at the loss of a very close and dear friend.

The brilliant thing about this book is that Dr Buckman has been exposed to the suffering of serious illness and grief both as a Dr and as a patient. Having had leukaemia (and survived) as a young adult 30 years ago, I found every word in this book about the suffering of the 'terminally ill' (as I was told I was, so long ago) struck a familiar chord.

This is one of the most comprehensive and compassionate books on death, dying, bereavement and grief available today. If you, or a friend or loved one, is supporting someone with a life-threatening illness, this book will be a tremendous support. Do yourself a favour and buy it!

Buckman's humanity and humility in the face of death come shining through in this wonderful book. The advice is sensitive and practical, and real-life examples show how different strategies work in action. Can't recommend it highly enough to those looking to support someone who is sick, dying or bereaved. Or just generally to anyone looking to be a better friend, colleague or human being.

I recently went through the illness/death of a loved one and I found this book extremely helpful, much better than 'on death and dying' by Kubler-Ross, which everyone recommends in these situations.

I warmly recommend this book instead.
