How can a book about dying, make you feel so good? Well, this book can and does. It is so beautifully written, with witty and heart-warming insight into the small, ordinary things that we do and see every day that makes living so special. "I get to chose the music [in the car] from now on" says Delia, who is dying of cancer, to her children. There's an upside even to dying, I guess.

I've been resistant to reading this because of the subject but after reading your comments I might give it a go.
I have just finished this book and really enjoyed it. Just as I finished the book, a dear friend was told she had terminal cancer. I debated whether or not she would enjoy it - a very emotional situation. However, as my friend is launching whole-heartedly into the writing of lists and the enjoyment of her remaining time, I took the chance. She hasn't started yet, but I too found the book uplifting and empowering so I hope it proves to be for my friend.
I am so sorry to hear of your friend's news Catherine. I lost a very good friend to cancer about 8 years ago. It was an heartbreaking time. Helpful books I would recommend for your friend would be Eckhardt Tolle's "The Power of Now" and Byron Katie's "Loving what is" Both these author's emphasise the importance of living in the moment.

Best wishes to you,
