Reader recommendation: Knocking on Heaven's Door

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.


I've been considering my own final wishes in regard to resuscitation and end-of-life issues. I heard an interview with Katy Butler on NPR and picked up her book Knocking on Heaven's Door: The Path to a Better Way of Death. It is a very eye-opening and sensitive treatment of these issues as experienced by one family. I highly recommend it.
