Author and narrator Katy Butler's calming tone softens her insights on reclaiming control over one's life and death. Butler is straightforward in her belief that modern medicine eliminates the customs, rituals, and recognition of this rite of passage. She believes that the desire to prolong life has created secrecy, fear, and shame around dying. Her message that today's medical system postpones death and disregards the integrity that death and dying once had is sobering, however. As narrator, her sincerity is comforting and encouraging, and her soothing voice and practical advice scale back the daunting journey of preparing and managing for a peaceful and humane death process in this era of high-tech medicine. This is indispensable information delivered with compassion and frankness. M.F. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2019]
