Product description

In this remarkable book psychologist Marie de Hennezel draws upon her personal experience of working with the terminally ill in a palliative care unit in Paris. Her encounters with people at the end of their life gives her a unique perspective on what life and death really mean, and her ultimate message, shared through the stories she recounts in this book, is one of celebrating the power and tenacity of the human spirit. She encourages us to embrace moments of joy and the small pleasures of life and to 'seize the day' at every opportunity. From the author of the Top Ten bestseller The Warmth of the Heart Prevents Your Body from Rusting comes this eloquent and inspirational work which will move everyone who reads it. 'Inspirational ...written with compassion and sympathy, the book eschews denial, transforming the unpalatable into something humane' Independent
