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.
