That Good Night is for every Canadian worried about dying some day--or who loves someone who's getting close.

Medical advances mean our demise will likely be a negotiated event, not simply nature taking its course. We may seek guidance from the professional ethicists now on staff at major hospitals, but even they have no obvious answers for the toughest question we'll ever face: how and when do you want to die?

Tim Falconer once again transforms a complicated subject into a thoughtful, readable and engaging book, one that shows us what ethicists do while tackling the difficult dilemmas that precede the modern death.

By sharing the compelling stories of those who've made hard choices, by considering living wills and by exploring the merits of assisted suicide and euthanasia, That Good Night untangles a topic that touches us all.
