Butler, Katy. The Art of Dying Well: A Practical Guide to a Good End of Life.The Art of Dying Well is about living as well as possible for as long as possible and adapting successfully to change. Packed with extraordinarily helpful insights and inspiring true stories, award-winning journalist and prominent end-of-life speaker Katy Butler shows how to thrive in later life (even when coping with a chronic medical condition), how to get the best from our health system, and how to make your own “good death” more likely. This handbook of step by step preparations—practical, communal, physical, and sometimes spiritual—will help you make the most of your remaining time, be it decades, years, or months. (Josephine's Note: If you are really into studying death and dying, all the books on this list are important. But if you want to know what to do, when, and how, this is a great choice. Very helpful).
