I like how the book is formatted in a way that makes it easy to read either from cover to cover or by dipping in and out... Overall, the book will be valuable not only to clinicians working in the field of end -of-life care but also to social workers, postgraduate students, patients, carers, and even family members. The use of interesting case studies provides a useful balance, with content that liberates the reader to think outside the box.
