Summary

A powerful, timely exploration of the art of living and dying on our own terms by one of Australia’s most respected voices

Of all the experiences we share, two universal events bookend our lives: We were all born, and we will all die. We don't have a choice in how we enter the world, but we can have a say in how we leave it.

In order to die well, we must be prepared to contemplate our mortality and to broach it with our loved ones, who are often called upon to make important decisions on our behalf. These are some of the most important conversations we can have with each other - to find peace, kindness and gratitude for what has gone before and acceptance of what is to come.

Dr Ranjana Srivastava draws on two decades of experience to share her observations and advice on leading a meaningful life and finding dignity and composure at the end. With an emphasis on advocacy, leaving a legacy, and staying true to our deepest convictions, Srivastava tells stories of strength, hope, and resilience in the face of grief and offers an optimistic meditation on approaching the end of life.

Intelligent, warm, and deeply affecting, A Better Death is a passionate exploration of the art of living and dying well.

Dr Ranjana Srivastava OAM is a practicing oncologist, award-winning writer, broadcaster, and Fulbright scholar. See ranjanasrivastava.com.

Heartfelt and honest

I urge all to listen to these amazing honest and heartfelt stories of an amazing journey from Ranjana the oncologist. This book allows us into her world and many situations. I could really relate to many of the examples given both personally and professionally.

Such insight

What a remarkable book.
Based on the experience of terminally ill patients and their families, Dr Srivastava cannot be lauded enough for placing the variety of their experiences before us.
Congrats also to Felicity Jurd, whose narration complements Dr Srivastava’s writing.
Well done, Simon & Schuster, Australia, for bringing this work to us.
