"From the end of the bed, I marveled at her quiet aplomb. This is the way to go, I realized."


Margaret Overton's Hope for A Cool Pillow is a passionate argument for planning end-of-life care. As physician, daughter and student of American health care, Overton pulls from all corners, showing us the emotional, financial and physical costs of not being prepared. Her daily rounds reveal harrowing consequences, her studies at Harvard highlight the industry's limits, and her own aging parents make her case universal. Deeply felt, frankly told, this book will challenge you -- and then help you -- make your own choices about end-of-life care.
