On Living

Dancing More, Working Less and Other Last Thoughts




This isn't a book about dying - this is a book about living.

What are the greatest regrets of the dying?

At her patients' bedside, witnessing their final moments, this is what Kerry Egan discovers. How do the dying seek to making meaning of their lives, the people and moments that have shaped them; and what are those things above all else that they wish they could have done differently?

This isn't a book about dying - it's a book about living. Each of Egan's patients taught her something. In this deeply moving and illuminating book, Kerry captures the fragility of the human experience, imparting the poignant and profound lessons from the dying, on how to live a life without regrets.

Praise for On Living

Funny, honest, and self-deprecating . . . On Living adds to the understanding of end-of-life issues in an important and accessible way . . . If there is one thing death teaches us, it's how to live
