Humphry's previous book, the bestseller "Final Exit: The Practicalities of Self-Deliverance & Assisted Suicide for the Dying", brought the right to die to the moral & political forefront. This book puts the somewhat confusing ethics & legality of the right to die in perspective & serves as an important companion volume to Final Exit. Humphry, founder of the Nat. Hemlock Soc., helps readers work their way through the labyrinth of complex issues which comprise the subject. He also discusses the effect that major mercy killing cases have had -- involving individuals like Roswell Gilbert, Dr. Peter Rosier, Nancy Cruzan, & Karen Ann Quinlan -- & the lessons these cases have taught.
