Condition: Near Fine.
After experiencing a paralysing stroke in 1995 and facing her own mortality, Elizabeth Kubler-Ross (author of the renowned On Death and Dying) realised she had some unfinished business to take care of. "I wanted to write one more book, not on death and dying, but on life and living", she explains. So she joined forces with co-author David Kessler, a leader in the field of hospice care, and together they wrote about the lessons we can learn about living from those who are dying. As Kessler explains in his Introduction, "The dying have always been teachers of great lessons, for it's when we are pushed to the edge of life that we see most clearly".In days gone by, the community would have gathering places where children and adults listened to elders tell their stories of life's challenges and the meaning they found in life. 256pp.
