To Die Well

Your Right to Comfort, Calm, and Choice in the last Days of Life

By Sidney Wanzer & Joseph Glenmullen
Narrated by Jonathan Marosz / 6 hours 30 minutes

While every one of us hopes "to die well," this may not be possible without knowing our rights about care at the end of life. How can futile medical treatment be stopped? When might death be hastened? How can each of us retain control of these decisions? The information in To Die Well is both comforting and empowering. Knowing our rights to refuse treatment, as well as legal ways to bring about death if pain or distress cannot be alleviated, will spare us the frightening helplessness that can rob our last days of meaning and connection with others. Drs. Sidney Wanzer and Joseph Glenmullen do not shy away from controversy. They make clear what patients should expect of their doctors, including the right to sufficient pain medication even if it shortens life. They distinguish between normal sadness and depression. They also explain the ways to hasten death that are legal and possible for anyone, and those that require a doctor's help.
