Simply amazing.

When I started to read this book, I was tad-bit irritated that the author kept using her life experiences to reflect the regrets of the dying people she cared for. But the book engaged me and through the stories I saw real truths that stirred me. There's a lot of wisdom in the pages, along with simple advice to make our transition void of regret. WARNING: This book will likely alter your perspective of life and will expose things that you need courage to deal with.
