`This useful book offers GPs an easy-to-read, practical guide to palliative care. It is written with clarity and compassion and will not fail to stimulate and motivate the reader. I enjoyed read Living With Dying and would recommend it to anybody involved in palliative care. It may be only a small book of some 60 pages, but it delivers a big message.' Dr Alan Duke, Doctor `in six very readable chapters, offers guidelines on the management of those symptoms commonly encountered in palliative care ... it is a readable volume and would certainly be a very valuable addition to the primary health care team library' Mari Lloyd-Williams, Progress in Palliative Care
