LIFE IS TERMINAL: A Doctor’s Common Sense Guide for Making it to the End

Everyone ages. Accidents happen. Illness is a fact of the human condition. No one lives forever. LIFE IS TERMINAL. We know these things. Yet few people seem to have embraced these common sense realities. Author Arthur H. Parsons M.D. thinks it’s time they did. Parsons challenges you to confront your own beliefs and attitudes toward your health and your life so you can face the often unpredictable twists and turns along your journey as you move toward the inevitable end of your life. Whenever that might be.
