"With the End in Mind is one of the loveliest books I've
ever read. It's part memoir and part self-help manual, part
practical advice and part professional credo. Mannix's compassion
is bottomless and her scrupulousness unimpeachable."--Bookforum
"With sometimes unsettling detail, admirable empathy and a sprinkling of humor, Dr. Mannix imparts valuable lessons for anyone who faces the loss of a family member or a personal reckoning with impending demise."--The Wall Street Journal
