Written in a somewhat different format than most death memoirs--an interesting weave of the author's perspective and his dying father-in-law's. Insightful and objective at the same time. Worth the the read.

I was not able to get into this book. I've read some of Dow's other books and never had any troble. But this boor I just didn't follow.
