Hospice Voices: Lessons for Living at the End of Life

Eric Lindner. Rowman & Littlefield, $22.95 (180p) ISBN 978-1-4422-2059-1
In this endearing and personal book, Attorney and entrepreneur Lindner details his experiences volunteering in hospice with colorful storytelling, practical advice, and encouragement for those coming to terms with the end of life. As a new volunteer, Lindner learns that there are 5300 hospices in the U.S. and they rely heavily on volunteers. While Lindner's early training included "dos and don'ts," he tends to follow his own path, causing some raised eyebrows and, in one case, nearly landing himself in a lawsuit. Still, Lindner's heart is in the right place and he soldiers on with a positive attitude, especially given that a hospice volunteer never knows what he's stepping into. One thing is for certain, a hospice volunteer must deal with profound moral dilemmas and emotional issues. Lindner's open access to patients combined with his hectic travel schedule has him receiving calls at all times of day and night and on various continents and he's frank about these life and death issues. Lindner takes on this heavy subject from a special perspective and he does so eloquently, providing insight and inspiration to those who read along. (Oct.)
