Finish Strong: Putting YOUR Priorities First at Life’s End
By Barbara Coombs Lee

From the president of Compassion & Choices, the guide to achieving the positive end-of-life experience you want and deserve.

It’s hard to talk about death in America. But even though the topic has been taboo, life’s end is an eventual reality.

So why not shape it to our values? FINISH STRONG is for those of us who want an end-of-life experience to match the life we’ve enjoyed. We know we should prepare, but are unsure how to think and talk about it, how to live true to our values and priorities, and how to make our wishes stick. 

The usual advice about advance directives and conversations is important but woefully inadequate. This book describes concrete action in the here and now to help live our best lives to the end.
