Summary "Two men face two very different deaths: One, a renowned palliative care doctor, grapples with the reality he helped so many to confront. The other, an ordinary man, faces an ordinary death. Conversations on Dying is a compelling portrayal of two final journeys that challenges you to ask, "What death would I choose?""-- Provided by publisher
