Price: $16.00

“Not only has Katy Butler dug deep and given us a beautiful and compelling look into the issues that her parents faced when approaching the end of their lives, she opens the discussion around how skewed our medical establishment has become in its practice of resuscitating at any cost.  Knocking on Heaven's Door probes through Butler's personal experience and examines the difficulties individuals and families now face in choosing their own path to dying.  This is an important book with a powerful message that begs to be read and shared'a 'tipping point' kind of book!”--Sheryl Cotleur, Copperfield's Books, Sebastopol, CA
