    You won’t regret reading A Chosen Death, October 11, 1996
    By A Customer

    Dr. Lonny Shavelson offers a powerful, wonderful, and rare
    insight into the medicalization of death in America. He
    chronicles several terminally ill individuals and their
    attempts to die with dignity. I couldn’t put the book down.

    A penetrating look at assisted suicide, November 18, 1995
    By A Customer

    The author is a physician who followed several cases of
    dying persons who from the onset of their terminal illnesses
    expressed a desire to commit suicide towards the end.
    Dr.Shavelson tracked these cases over 3-4 years and records
    the medical and emotional roller-coaster the patients
    went through. The best examination on a personal basis
    of assisted suicide so far published.

    This is one of the finest books in this genre. Stories about real people and the caring doctor who befriended them, tended them and saw to their final wishes. Highly recommended!
