In this remarkable new book, Bert Keizer, a Dutch doctor with training in philosophy as well as medicine, probes these concerns with understanding and insight as he shares with us his extraordinary experiences among the terminally ill.We follow Keizer through his days at a nursing home in Holland as he listens to his patients stories, documents their battle with disease, and witnesses their taking their own lives in order to die with dignity.
