This book is unique in several ways: it is about death and an individual's preparation for death from the perspective of cancer victim Randy Manuel who died in the summer of 2001. It is about Stage IV cancer-the penultimate experience in life's journey. It is both a "read" as well as a "do." This book is meant to serve as an invaluable journal to capture this amazing time of awakening. It is practical-with recommendations that are realistic. Ultimately, this book is an inimitable guide for both someone preparing for death and his or her loved ones-when time is incredibly short and maximizing the tremendous opportunity for both parties is critical to coming to peace with what has been life's greatest mystery.
