Summary "A Good Death is based on work in East London and provides a wide range of fascinating and helpful insights into all aspects of experiencing death and surviving grief." "The voices in the book are mostly those of people who have managed to cope despite being under the shadow of impending death. Their experience could be a comfort to anybody in a similar situation. A Good Death is intended for people who are dying, for their lay and professional carers and for student doctors, nurses and social workers."--Jacket.
