Bill Tammeus reviewed The Good Death at the National Catholic Reporter this month. You can read the entire review here. Tammeus writes:
In the end, Neumann decides, “there is no good death. … But there is a good enough death.”
Beyond that, she writes, “there is really one kind of bad death, characterized by the same bad facts: pain, denial, prolongation, loneliness.”
And that is what people of faith should be working hard to help people avoid.
