The most helpful book I've read on living with serious illness
March 6, 2017
I was diagnosed with aggressive brain cancer a year and a half ago. I've read a large stack of books about living with serious illness. This one was, by far, the most helpful and the most enjoyable one of the stack. Every chapter gave me practical wisdom I could apply in my own life, and also good stories to laugh with and savor. One of my favorite practices that I borrowed from the book was taking a healing walk with an ancestor. Since learning of the practice in the book, I've done it many times. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is living with serious illness, anyone who loves someone who is, and anyone who is aging and thinks they might die someday! Cultivating practices and an attitude to help us die smiling is about the best gift I can imagine.
