I imagine this book can be read by people at various stages in life, and felt very differently depending on their experiences. For someone who's been a care giver of an old dying parent and have seen the births of new lives, I can see how truthful the author is to herself and those around her. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who is or will be a caregiver for an elderly - there is much to learn if you're willing to gently listen.

#1 Live a life true to yourself, not what others expect of you.
#2 Don't work too hard.
#3 Express your feelings
#4 Stay in touch with friends
#5 Let yourself be happy

Overall not bad advice. We tend to block thinking about these things out in our daily life (somebody has to clean the dishes and cook dinner- who has time to deal with all these big questions). It seemed to be a bit "spiritual" for my taste, but I thought she had good advice for the most part. I am probably biased though as I already believe strongly in #1 & #2. I thought she was a bit harsh on the guy that just gave up when his health was shot. Maybe that was how he felt about it and she should have respected that.
