Clare is an astonishingly dynamic, witty and fun personality, and her positivity and energy exude from every minute. As she becomes too weak to type, her brother - the actor Greg Wise - takes over, and the book morphs into a beautiful meditation on life and the necessity of talking about death. With echoes of Atul Gawande's Being Mortal and Cathy Rentzenbrink's The Last Act of Love, it is a very special listen that rejoices in the extraordinary and often underestimated sibling bond and the importance of making the most of the ordinary pleasures life has to offer.
As Greg Wise writes in the book: 'Celebrate the small things, the small moments. If you find yourself with matching socks as you leave the house in the morning, that is a cause for celebration. If the rest of the day is spent finding the cure for cancer, or brokering world peace, then that's a bonus.'

So Moving and Thought Provoking
This beautiful book resonated with me mainly because my beloved big brother died nearly a year ago from prostate cancer at only 60.
It is beautifully written (and narrated) and leaves the listener with much positive things to think about( especially about living in the moment. For me this message affirms one of the things I've come to believe in recent months.

The book that made me aware”I’m not alone”
It was strange to read this book,so similar to exactly what I went trough with my ex husband for the past 3 years... How was this possible? Like a gift coming my way,just in time! !!My ex husband passed on 4 days after I finished the book:15/4-18
I got there in time,we had 4 days in peaceful,loving surroundings. Listening to Enya. We did it,this too. Together. No pain,just like a breeze passing trough... And he was on his way.
I so want to thank the writers and Rose!!! I will not be able to do that but know I am forever grateful. Somehow I hope you get to know that!
Thank you<3 from Inger
