520    "In Dear Life, palliative care specialist Dr. Rachel 
       Clarke recounts her professional and personal journey to 
       understand not the end of life, but life at its end. Death
       was conspicuously absent during Rachel's medical training.
       Instead, her education focused entirely on learning to 
       save lives, and was left wanting when it came to helping 
       patients and their families face death. She came to 
       specialize in palliative medicine because it is the one 
       specialty in which the quality, not quantity of life truly
       matters. In the same year she started to work in a hospice,
       Rachel was forced to face tragedy in her own life when her
       father was diagnosed with terminal cancer. He'd inspired 
       her to become a doctor, and the stories he had told her as
       a child proved formative when it came to deciding what 
       sort of medicine she would practice. But for all her 
       professional exposure to dying, she remained a grieving 
       daughter. Dear Life follows how Rachel came to understand-
       as a child, as a doctor, as a human being-how best to help
       patients in the final stages of life, and what that might 
       mean in practice"--|cProvided by publisher.
