"A gentle, knowledgeable guide to a fate we all share" (The Washington Post): the first and only all-encompassing action plan for the end of life. "There is nothing wrong with you for dying," hospice physician B.J. Miller and journalist and caregiver Shoshana Berger write in A Beginner's Guide to the End. "Our ultimate purpose here isn't so much to help you die as it is to free up as much life as possible until you do." Theirs is a clear-eyed and big-hearted action plan for approaching the end of life, written to help readers feel more in control of an experience that so often seems anything but controllable. Their book offers everything from step-by-step instructions for how to do your paperwork and navigate the healthcare system to answers to questions you might be afraid to ask your doctor, like whether or not sex is still okay when you're sick. Get advice for how to break the news to your employer, whether to share old secrets with your family, how to face friends who might not be as empathetic as you'd hoped, and how to talk to your children about your will. (Don't worry: if anyone gets snippy, it'll likely be their spouses, not them.) There are also lessons for survivors, like how to shut down a loved one's social media accounts, clean out the house, and write a great eulogy. An honest, surprising, and detail-oriented guide to the most universal of all experiences, A Beginner's Guide to the End is "a book that every family should have, the equivalent of Dr. Spock but for this other phase of life" (New York Times bestselling author Dr. Abraham Verghese).… (mais)

The first ever practical, compassionate, and comprehensive guide to dying--and living fully until you do.
  NetivotLibrary | Oct 11, 2021 |
This book is something precious, and as far as I know unique -- a practical and compassionate guide to dealing with death. That's not something that most people want to think about, so there is a tendency to avoid the subject until it can't be avoided any longer. Then, too many of us have to take complicated steps and make difficult decisions in the midst of emotional turmoil and physical suffering. This book enables someone who is facing death (which is all of us, of course) to see the steps -- financial, legal, medical, and emotional -- which we need to take, and set about taking them. I wish I had had this book when my mother died, and when dear friends died. Now, I am facing my husband's death due to illness, and my own due to old age, and I DO have this book. I find it very enlightening -- here is what you need to do -- and very comforting. I've been recommending it to all my friends, my family and my doctors: can't praise it highly enough. ( )

The good news is my demise is not yet in sight. The bad news is, one really never knows! The tie in to this book is that very few people really plan to deal with the ordeal of being taken out by illness. Yet that is what many of will face as we wrap things up.

The book walks you through multiple factors you will encounter from the paperwork to the pain. And sometimes that paperwork is the pain. But in all seriousness each topics is handled thoroughly and gave me insights and considerations that frankly I would never have considered.

So now armed with all of this useful information as I approach the stretch run, (hopefully about 20+ years away) I am much more at ease as to what to expect and how to deal with it. And for most of us procrastinators this is clearly a wake up call to get busy and have things in order so those last precious months weeks and days will transition as smoothly as possible. And most of all to help lessen the burden on those who care about and for us to see us through. ( )
