About the Author

Tim Brookes, perhaps best-known as a long-time commentator on National Public Radio, researched issues involving death and hospice care at a time when his efforts were intertwined with care for his dying mother. The resulting book has become a classic on death and dying-practical considerations as well as the search for meaning in life and death.
