 Western medical science has added years or even decades to the human life span. However, when we do face the inevitability of death, we may find it to be (in Kubler Rossís words) "lonely, mechanical and dehumanized." This pioneering work grew out of a seminar where terminally ill patients were invited to speak for themselves as they confronted impending death. Kubler-Ross explains the typical stages of denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance through which terminally ill patients move, while advocating more humane treatment for them as they face lifeís final moments. Death is a topic that no one is eager to confront, including, unfortunately, many medical professionals. This book, where patients speak in their own words, shows how we can both help those who are dying and alleviate our own fears about mortality.
