Death is a reality for all of us, and it is time that the conversation be as natural as how we talk about living a heart healthy life. Anne Finkelman Ziff gives us the tools in this how-to guide. The discussion of death and dying should be a conversation that is simply a part of all of our lives. -- Suzanne Steinbaum, Director, Women's Heart Health, Heart and Vascular Institute, Lenox Hill Hospital
This is a brave book by a wise woman. Anne Ziff encourages us to look ahead while we are able, and initiate discussion about our own death and dying wishes with the people closest to us. She has obviously done the work herself and is therefore perfectly positioned to guide others. Packed with stories and exercises to help organize our thoughts, Your End of Life Matters is neither maudlin nor panic-inducing. Rather, it is a practical guide through the thicket. It will make you think, calm your nerves, and allow you to go on with life, free of most end-of-life concerns. -- Elena Lesser Bruun, EdD, LMFT, LMHC; Past President of the New York Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (NYAMFT); Former Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry at NYU School of Medicine; Co-author of "Marrying Well" and "Not on Speaking Terms"
