I recommend the book to anyone who has questions and fears concerning death and how to gain control of your own living and dying. Because of this book I will live longer because I know there is finao fast and painless way out when I’m ready. Dispassionate and intelligent discussion of end-life dwrek. Here’s a hard fact: Doctors often will do horrific procedures to keep patients alive.
I read this because I live with chronic pain and narcotics and barbiturates are of little help. I worry what might happen if the pain becomes unbearable. This book eased my mind.
The author recommends readers exhaust every remedy before making any choices, as well as talking with family members. A brave and cautious author. Everyone should own this book as it has the easy way to get out of life before terrible pain or the rest home takes your every penny. I’m ready now should I ever need it. I bought this book in This happenned in You cannot even get it online, other than buying an empty tank at lowes.
Second, you cannot even get the drugs needed here in the US to make a peaceful death possible. You would be better off moving to Oregon where dying with dignity is legal. Or, since there is so many school shootings in the US lately, go visit one of them.
A quick two day read, which incredibly enhances your personal freedom, to the point of having the ultimate: Following advice in this book, you could almost “exit” and being proud of this last act. I felt great peace after reading it, and slept that night like a baby, or should I say like the dead, unlike most of the last few months. This book is excellent for the anxious ones among us, as it is so short, although a bit too short on variety of “recommended” techniques.
I would like the section on suicide from exposure expanded, as it contains risks, but also permits a lonesome exit within natural settings and by natural means cold. One of my ten favourite books, not due to being good read, but due to its topic.
Thank you very much, Mr Humphry.
Final Exit (Third Edition)
The most important book I’ve read. I will no longer have panic attacks about whether or when I can end my life. If it’s important you control the end of your life, this easy to read and understand book will give you much relief. Both old age and illness have approached. This book has been indispensable in knowing from a practical and legal perspective what the possibilities are.
It has helped with conversations with physicians, hospice staff, my friends and family, and lawyers. This is no “Dr.
Kervorkian light,” in that Humphry tells it straight re the self-deliverance experiences and options, most of which are pretty unattractive from my point of view for a loved one or myself. However, he also explains how to work with health care staff to reach palliation and a passing with dignity, pain free, should one choose. It is also somewhat out of date in federal and some state laws, particularly laws ensuring a patient’s right to comfort and palliative care, as far as I can tell. However it is straight, yet compassionate in style and covers just about everything I wanted to learn about this difficult topic.
If you or a loved one needs a good general book to supplement discussions with clergy, doctors, and family, you may find this excellent. It gives a solid foundation for these discussions and further research. I think it an fine value specially at used book prices for the most recent edition.
