It is almost as if the forces of nature conspire with the dying person to ensure a graceful exit. One has to come away touched by a sense of awe and reverence with respect to the sacred nature of the "nearing death experience. Why should you fear its end? Were you ever made less by dying?

It is hard reading, not only because the material is very dense at times -I can handle that easily in other books if they hold my interest- but mainly because the book forced me to go deep into my own fear of death and dying.
The main thing I got out of it is a map of the dying process that goes beyond Kubler-Ross' stages of grief and into a profound description of what may happen as we melt into death, map that both our Western civilization and Christianity lack. This will help me to be a better companion to those who are in their deathbed, and hopefully to me when my time comes.
