"Based on deep experience, this loving, emotionally wise book will help many people find the path to love, acceptance and meaning as they face life's end."-Katy Butler, author of Knocking on Heaven's Door and The Art of Dying Well

"Remembering the revealing end-of-life experiences my own father had, I was fascinated by this book. It treats an area of medical ignorance and societal naiveté. Whether you have a loved one nearing the end, or are contemplating what may lie beyond this life, you'll find that Dr. Kerr's book brings meaning and even beauty to our final stage. I recommend it highly for anyone with a finite lifespan."-Dale Bredesen, MD, author of the New York Times bestseller, The End of Alzheimer's

"A beautiful portrait of the human capacity for transcendence at the end of life. This book will inspire you reflect on the love and meaning you have experienced in your own life, and help you listen to, and be with, those nearing the end of their lives."-Kelly McGonigal, PhD, author of The Joy of Movement

"Reflections on death are not new. Yet, so many wish to separate death from life forgetting that death, in fact, is part of life. This reality is shared with us by a hospice physician who, himself, learned so much from the dying. And what did he learn? That by being truly present with those who are dying, one learns how to live."-James Doty, MD, author of Into the Magic Shop

"In this fascinating book, we meet the dying whose dreams, both sad and sweet, are powerful, beautiful medicine for the soul; theirs and ours."-Steve Leder, author of More Beautiful Than Before; How Suffering Transforms Us

"Penetrating and empathetic...This comforting guide will reassure the dying and their loved ones while providing instructive portraits of end-of-life patients for those who work in medical and healing professions."-Publishers Weekly, starred review

"An uplifting and reassuring work testifying to the deep restorative and spiritual--though not necessarily religious--nature of pre-death visions."-Kirkus Reviews
