This book analyzes the process of death. The author states there are five stages to the process: denial and isolation, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. The author goes in depth on each of these phases and also talks about the effect death has on the families involved as well. In chapter 10, the interview with terminally ill patients reminded me of the article “Dying Will” by Jerome Groopman. Both refer and analyze discourse between terminally ill patients and their physicians.
