Review Quotes
A tour-de-force of the psychiatric and psychosocial aspects of palliative medicine.
"Multiple authoritative contributors provide their expertise in the relatively new field of psychiatric intervention for the dying and for those who love them. The book deserves kudos for not polemicizing any particular point of view. Although touchy issues are discussed openly, no sides aretaken, and the discussion sheds far more light than heat, for a pleasant change. The book is cohesively written and rarely uneven, a remarkable feat in a multiauthor work." -- Mary Hartshorn, MD, JAMA, January 24/31, 2001 - Vol 285, No.4
