I was given this by a therapist friend while caring for my terminally ill mother. Every day was a tragedy I didn't understand... I didn't understand so much at first. This book was one of the few... of many.. that truly helped. By learning why my mother acted as she did sometimes, (badly), and why I, well, pretty much did the same helped us both. What I learned here allowed me to ease my mother's passage, and has in fact inspired me to finally get that nursing degree. This book would be a great gift for anyone in any helping profession, especially any kind of health care or caregivers.
This book arrived in excellent condition and I bought it for under a dollar. It looked brand new. It is an easy read with a fresh perspective. As a Hospice nurse I found the feelings that a caregiver might be having as right on. i totally related to it. A must have for those who deal in end of life issues.
