Although chapters in this thoughtful book on supporting caregivers can be accessed as needed for specific information, one may find oneself reading straight through. Early chapters, where the author talks about both the loved one's and the carer's worlds and provides guidance on communication between the two, are of special note. Goldberg, a therapist who has spent time as a hospice volunteer and caregiver, was moved by his own diagnosis of cancer to write this book, which follows his previously highly acclaimed work Lessons for the Living. Appendices list organizations, support groups, governmental agencies, and end-of-life forms.
